Brooks KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Brooks knee pain is a pain that Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees often. Pain medications and surgical options are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is supplying quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic daily for Brooks back pain and neck pain relief - were tailored for application with knee pain. They proved successful in easing knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell more dramatically 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. None of the patients experienced any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience with treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s Brooks chiropractic care! Brooks knee pain sufferers are invited to experience this gentle, relieving Brooks knee pain treatment!

 

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Brooks elder folks gain even more. A new article states that people with chronic low back pain usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Soft Health and Healing Clinic concurs as this pairing is seen often in this Brooks chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function for a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Soft Health and Healing Clinic will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do at home along with the Brooks chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
