Pain Relief with Vancouver Chiropractic Care: Cox
Vancouver Disc Centers incorporates Cox Technic into the
Vancouver treatment plan forVancouver back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Vancouver Disc Centers recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Vancouver chiropractic practice) alleviates
neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes
with low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low
back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly
utilized to manage low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox
Technic offers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Vancouver Disc Centers uses it with our Vancouver back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation influences
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’s a goal of Vancouver
chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system
when it is distressed by pain.

care at Vancouver Disc Centers! Schedule an appointment today!
Vancouver Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Curious how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study reported
that, when asked, young adults knew 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 Vancouver chiropractor is ready to talk
just how important it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Vancouver Disc Centers!
