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!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
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.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
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!
