Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Sitka chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) as to which position is most beneficial.
For the Sitka back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Sitka spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka grounds its Sitka
chiropractic treatment on research. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka notes
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is well aware that
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
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka applies an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Sitka
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
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 such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Sitka chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the appropriate forces allows the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Sitka low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Sitka chiropractor and relieving
to the Sitka chiropractic patients at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka!
