Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Baton Rouge chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous.
For the Baton Rouge back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Baton Rouge spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Spine & Sports Rehab Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Spine & Sports Rehab Center bases its Baton Rouge
chiropractic treatment on research. Spine & Sports Rehab Center keeps abreast of13
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 could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Spine & Sports Rehab Center utilizes 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 Baton Rouge
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Spine & Sports Rehab Center. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Baton Rouge chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Baton Rouge low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Baton Rouge chiropractor and relieving
to the Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at Spine & Sports Rehab Center!
