Pain Relief with Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Amelia Chiropractic Clinic incorporates Cox Technic into the Fernandina Beach treatment plan forFernandina Beach back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Fernandina Beach chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Amelia Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use it with our Fernandina Beach back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.

Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Curious how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic!
