Cross Chiropractic Centers October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



Sandy Springs knee pain is a pain that Cross Chiropractic Center sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical procedures are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic approach is supplying good results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic daily for Sandy Springs back pain and neck pain relief - were adapted for application with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale 1 least pain, 10 most pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. In particular, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study reported any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain.

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can gain from stronger hip abductors, and Sandy Springs older folks gain even more. A recent article reports that people with chronic low back pain typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Cross Chiropractic Center concurs as these two are seen often in this Sandy Springs chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function in a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Cross Chiropractic Center will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home alongside the Sandy Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to achieve such relief yourself.
