Pain Relief with Minster Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Minster Chiropractic Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Minster treatment plan forMinster back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height as well as a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Minster chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Minster Chiropractic Center uses it with our Minster back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Minster chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

Minster Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Curious how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Minster chiropractor is ready to discuss just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Minster Chiropractic Center!
