Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Fort Wayne chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Fort Wayne back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Fort Wayne spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Aaron Chiropractic Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic bases its Fort Wayne
chiropractic treatment on research. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic notes
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic applies an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature 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 Fort Wayne
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor like another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Fort Wayne chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Fort Wayne low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Fort Wayne chiropractor and relieving
to the Fort Wayne chiropractic patients at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic!
