Pain Relief with Richmond Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Johnson Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Richmond treatment plan forRichmond back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Johnson Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Richmond chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to reduce low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves 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 offers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Johnson Chiropractic uses it with our Richmond back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Richmond chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

Richmond Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when questioned, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Richmond chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to your next Richmond visit soon at Johnson Chiropractic!
