Pain Relief with Manahawkin Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Manahawkin Chiropractic Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Manahawkin treatment plan forManahawkin back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height as well as a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Manahawkin chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to reduce low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses it with our Manahawkin 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 Manahawkin chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

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

Curious how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study reported that, when asked, young adults knew that calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential for all ages! Your Manahawkin chiropractor is ready to discuss just how valuable it is for you.
