Is West Palm Beach Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or low back pain that is an issue for your West Palm Beach chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the inquisitive patient!) as to which position is most beneficial. For the West Palm Beach back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able to get his or her hands on the spine. For your West Palm Beach spine specialist, prone is certainly preferred as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered. At Moses Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain, and research approves!


Moses Chiropractic bases its West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment on research. Moses Chiropractic keeps abreast of13 current spinal care research. In a recent study of traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated that traction in the prone position brought about immediate and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Moses Chiropractic perceives the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving the fluid exchange in the disc (as Moses Chiropractic is well aware that nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.


Moses Chiropractic uses a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its relief of back pain and neck pain.  In using Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your West Palm Beach chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Moses Chiropractic. This indicates that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor is so trained. Using the appropriate forces makes available the best chance to replicate the clinical back pain relief for West Palm Beach low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers have recorded in their research studies. That is exciting to your West Palm Beach chiropractor and alleviating to the West Palm Beach chiropractic patients at Moses Chiropractic!
