Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Minster chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Minster back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Minster spine
specialist, prone is surely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Minster Chiropractic Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Minster Chiropractic Center grounds its Minster
chiropractic treatment on research. Minster Chiropractic Center keeps up with
current 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 might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center perceives
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Minster Chiropractic Center knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Minster Chiropractic Center uses 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 Minster
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Minster Chiropractic Center. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor like another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Minster chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Minster low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Minster chiropractor and relieving
to the Minster chiropractic patients at Minster Chiropractic Center!
