Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Tarrytown chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) regarding which position is most beneficial.
For the Tarrytown 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 Tarrytown spine
specialist, prone is surely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Tarrytown Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Tarrytown Chiropractic centers its Tarrytown
chiropractic treatment on research. Tarrytown Chiropractic keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic notes
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Tarrytown Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Tarrytown Chiropractic applies a special 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 Tarrytown
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Tarrytown Chiropractic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Tarrytown chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Tarrytown low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Tarrytown chiropractor and alleviating
to the Tarrytown chiropractic patients at Tarrytown Chiropractic!
