Pain Relief with Brooks Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Soft Health and Healing Clinic incorporates Cox Technic into the Brooks treatment plan forBrooks back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Brooks chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses it with our Brooks back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Brooks chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is upset by pain.

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

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

We look forward to your next Brooks visit soon at Soft Health and Healing Clinic!
