Pain Relief with Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation incorporates Cox Technic into the Baton Rouge treatment plan forBaton Rouge back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height as well as 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Baton Rouge chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies 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 often 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 study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses it with our Baton Rouge back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
