Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic all the time for Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for application with knee pain. They proved successful in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study experienced any adverse reactions.

Baton Rouge CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Baton Rouge older folks benefit even more. A new article states that people with chronic low back pain typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation agrees as this pairing is seen frequently in this Baton Rouge chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function for a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do in the convenience of your own home alongside the Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
