Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Millville chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Millville back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Millville spine
specialist, prone is definitely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Wilson Family Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Wilson Family Chiropractic grounds its Millville
chiropractic treatment on research. Wilson Family Chiropractic keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Wilson Family Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Wilson Family Chiropractic applies a distinctive 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 applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Millville
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Millville chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Millville low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Millville chiropractor and alleviating
to the Millville chiropractic patients at Wilson Family Chiropractic!
