Pain Relief with West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Moses Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the West Palm Beach treatment plan forWest Palm Beach back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Moses Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this West Palm Beach chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why Moses Chiropractic chooses to use it with our West Palm Beach back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

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

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