Pain Relief with Vancouver Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers recognizes the good of this increase.

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.

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!
