Pain Relief with Vancouver Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Vancouver Spine Care Centre recognizes the good of this
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 your next Vancouver visit soon at Vancouver Spine Care Centre!
