Baton Rouge Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s common today in back pain management for back pain relief. Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Spine & Sports Rehab Center shares this discussion about Baton Rouge spinal decompression and how Spine & Sports Rehab Center addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Baton Rouge Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the well-known website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Spine & Sports Rehab Center concurs with this explanation and aspires to do just that with Baton Rouge chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the chiropractic method known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Baton Rouge Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It’s effective. That’s why Spine & Sports Rehab Center uses it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically allows for lumbar spine intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic results in back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, curbing back pain sufferers from crossing over into the more costly as well as life-altering category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Baton Rouge spinal decompression reduces radiculopathy (leg pain) commandingly compared to medical conservative care, mainly physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic obtained less care (3) and said they had less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
