Pain Relief with Vancouver Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Vancouver Spine Care Centre incorporates Cox Technic into the Vancouver treatment plan forVancouver back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Vancouver chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses it with our Vancouver back pain patients!

Also, 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 Vancouver chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

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

Funny how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study reported that, when questioned, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Vancouver chiropractor is ready to discuss just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Vancouver Spine Care Centre!
