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!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
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.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
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!
