Vancouver KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Vancouver knee pain is a pain that Vancouver Disc Centers sees often. Pain meds and surgical options are plentiful while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is showing exciting results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Vancouver back pain and neck pain relief - were tailored for use with knee pain. They demonstrated success in relieving knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study experienced any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Check out a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Vancouver Disc Centers’s Vancouver chiropractic care! Vancouver knee pain sufferers are welcomed to experience this gentle, relieving Vancouver knee pain treatment!

 

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Vancouver senior folks gain even more. A new article states that people with chronic low back pain usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Vancouver Disc Centers agrees as this pairing is seen frequently in this Vancouver chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Vancouver Disc Centers will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do at home along with the Vancouver chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
