Pain Relief with Sandy Springs Chiropractic Care: Cox
Cross Chiropractic Center incorporates Cox Technic into the
Sandy Springs treatment plan forSandy Springs back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a decrease
in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Cross Chiropractic Center recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Sandy Springs chiropractic practice) eases
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes
with low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low
back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly
used to reduce low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A
new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox
Technic produces short-term pain-relief similar
to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Cross Chiropractic Center uses it with our Sandy Springs back pain patients!
Further, spinal manipulation affects
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Sandy Springs
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it’s affected by pain.

Sandy Springs Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study shared
that, when asked, young adults recognized that
calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not
how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is key
for all ages! Your Sandy Springs chiropractor is ready to talk
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Cross Chiropractic Center!
