Pain Relief with Augusta Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic incorporates Cox Technic into the Augusta treatment plan forAugusta back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Augusta chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining 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, lessens pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic uses it with our Augusta back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation influences 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 Augusta chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

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

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

We look forward to your next Augusta visit soon at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic!
