Baton Rouge KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Baton Rouge knee pain is a pain that Spine & Sports Rehab Center sees often. Pain medications and surgical options are plentiful while a new non-surgical chiropractic treatment is showing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain relief - were tailored for application with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in relieving knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study experienced any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Check out a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Spine & Sports Rehab Center’s Baton Rouge chiropractic care! Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers are welcomed to feel this gentle, relieving Baton Rouge knee pain treatment!

 

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Baton Rouge older folks gain even more. A recent article states that people with chronic low back pain typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Spine & Sports Rehab Center agrees as these two are seen often in this Baton Rouge chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Spine & Sports Rehab Center will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home alongside the Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to experience such relief yourself.
