Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Richmond chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) as to which position is most beneficial.
For the Richmond 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 Richmond spine
specialist, prone is surely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Johnson Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Johnson Chiropractic centers its Richmond
chiropractic treatment on research. Johnson Chiropractic 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 found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Johnson Chiropractic notes
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Johnson Chiropractic is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Johnson Chiropractic utilizes an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Richmond
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Johnson Chiropractic. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Richmond chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the proper forces allows the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Richmond low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Richmond chiropractor and alleviating
to the Richmond chiropractic patients at Johnson Chiropractic!
