Pain Relief with Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation recognizes the good of this
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 commonly
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.

calcium is important for kids and older adults but not
how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is key

just how important it is for you.
