Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Sandy Springs chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the Sandy Springs back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Sandy Springs spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Cross Chiropractic Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Cross Chiropractic Center centers its Sandy Springs
chiropractic treatment on research. Cross Chiropractic Center keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center sees
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Cross Chiropractic Center knows
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Cross Chiropractic Center applies a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Sandy Springs
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Cross Chiropractic Center. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Sandy Springs chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the proper forces allows the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Sandy Springs low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Sandy Springs chiropractor and alleviating
to the Sandy Springs chiropractic patients at Cross Chiropractic Center!
