Pain Relief with Richmond Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Johnson Chiropractic recognizes the good of this
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!
