Pain Relief with Easley Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Young Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Easley treatment plan forEasley back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Young Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Easley chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that goes 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 utilized to control 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 contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Young Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Easley back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences 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 Easley chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

Easley Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults knew that calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is key for all ages! Your Easley chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to your next Easley visit soon at Young Chiropractic!
