Pain Relief with Sitka Chiropractic Care: Cox
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka incorporates Cox Technic into the
Sitka treatment plan forSitka back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Sitka chiropractic practice) eases
neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low
back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly
used to control low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted
with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new rat study confirms that using Cox
Technic produces short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s
why Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses it with our Sitka back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation affects
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Sitka
chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system
when it’s upset by pain.

Sitka Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Funny how recommendations are
always for somebody else! A Canadian study reported
that, when questioned, young adults recognized that
calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not
how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential
for all ages! Your Sitka chiropractor is ready to talk
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka!
