Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Brooks chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the Brooks back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Brooks spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Soft Health and Healing Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Soft Health and Healing Clinic grounds its Brooks
chiropractic treatment on research. Soft Health and Healing Clinic keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Soft Health and Healing Clinic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Brooks
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 with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Soft Health and Healing Clinic. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Brooks chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the appropriate forces makes available the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Brooks low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Brooks chiropractor and alleviating
to the Brooks chiropractic patients at Soft Health and Healing Clinic!
