Is Fernandina Beach Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or low back pain that is an issue for your Fernandina Beach chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested patient!) regarding which position is most beneficial. For the Fernandina Beach back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Fernandina Beach spine specialist, prone is definitely preferred as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used. At Amelia Chiropractic Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain, and research approves!


Amelia Chiropractic Clinic grounds its Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment on research. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic keeps up with new spinal care research. In a recent study of traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic notes the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing the fluid exchange in the disc (as Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.


Amelia Chiropractic Clinic applies a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers state 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 Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is so trained. Using the proper forces sets up the best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain relief for Fernandina Beach low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers have recorded in their research projects. That is thrilling to your Fernandina Beach chiropractor and alleviating to the Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic!
