Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Vancouver chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Vancouver back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Vancouver spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Vancouver Disc Centers prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Vancouver Disc Centers bases its Vancouver
chiropractic treatment on research. Vancouver Disc Centers keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a recent 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) Vancouver Disc Centers perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Vancouver Disc Centers is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Vancouver Disc Centers applies a distinctive form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Vancouver
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Vancouver Disc Centers. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Vancouver chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Vancouver low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Vancouver chiropractor and alleviating
to the Vancouver chiropractic patients at Vancouver Disc Centers!
