Is Millville Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

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 specialty, 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!
