Pain Relief with Eugene Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Eugene chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that extends 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 often used 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 contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses it with our Eugene back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Eugene chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

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

Peculiar how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study reported that, when questioned, young adults knew that calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential for all ages! Your Eugene chiropractor is ready to discuss just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic!
