Pain Relief with Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Spine & Sports Rehab Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Baton Rouge treatment plan forBaton Rouge back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Baton Rouge chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Spine & Sports Rehab Center chooses to use it with our Baton Rouge back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences 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’s a goal of Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
