Pain Relief with Tarrytown Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Tarrytown chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to reduce 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. Great news! A new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why Tarrytown Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Tarrytown back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation affects 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 is a goal of Tarrytown chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.
