Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Baton Rouge chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the Baton Rouge back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Baton Rouge spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation centers its Baton Rouge
chiropractic treatment on research. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation utilizes a special 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 Baton Rouge
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Baton Rouge chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Baton Rouge low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Baton Rouge chiropractor and relieving
to the Baton Rouge chiropractic patients at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation!
