Is Baton Rouge Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

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 research-documented and gentle in its relief of 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 reliably 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 chance 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!
