Pain Relief with Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Spine & Sports Rehab Center recognizes the good of this
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.
