Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Manahawkin chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the curious
patient!) about which position is most advantageous.
For the Manahawkin back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Manahawkin spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Manahawkin Chiropractic Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center centers its Manahawkin
chiropractic treatment on research. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center notes
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses a distinctive form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Manahawkin
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
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Manahawkin chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Manahawkin low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Manahawkin chiropractor and alleviating
to the Manahawkin chiropractic patients at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center!
