Pain Relief with Sandy Springs Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center recognizes the good of this increase.

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 accompanies 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.
