Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Vancouver chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Vancouver 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 Vancouver spine
specialist, prone is certainly preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Vancouver Spine Care Centre prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Vancouver Spine Care Centre bases its Vancouver
chiropractic treatment on research. Vancouver Spine Care Centre keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre perceives
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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
Vancouver Spine Care Centre applies an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Vancouver
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
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 such a table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Vancouver Spine Care Centre. 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
Vancouver chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Vancouver low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Vancouver chiropractor and alleviating
to the Vancouver chiropractic patients at Vancouver Spine Care Centre!
