Pain Relief with Brooks Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes the good of this
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 commonly
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 study with rats 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!
