Fernandina Beach Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It is common today in back pain management for back pain relief. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Here is a discussion about Fernandina Beach spinal decompression and how Amelia Chiropractic Clinic addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Fernandina Beach Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure produced from spinal decompression over time may help reduce herniated discs and take pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic concurs with this description and seeks to do just that with Fernandina Beach chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic used by Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That’s why Amelia Chiropractic Clinic chooses to apply it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically allows for lumbar spine intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression reduces pressure on the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Fernandina Beach chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic results in back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, preventing back pain sufferers from entering the more high-priced as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Fernandina Beach spinal decompression lessens radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly when put up against medical conservative care, mainly physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients cared for with spinal decompression as Cox Technic took less care (3) and described less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
