Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Severna Park chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Severna Park back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Severna Park spine
specialist, prone is certainly preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Back And Neck Care Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Back And Neck Care Center bases its Severna Park
chiropractic treatment on research. Back And Neck Care Center keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Back And Neck Care Center notes
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Back And Neck Care Center knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Back And Neck Care Center utilizes a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Severna Park
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Back And Neck Care Center. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Severna Park chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces allows the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Severna Park low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Severna Park chiropractor and relieving
to the Severna Park chiropractic patients at Back And Neck Care Center!
