Pain Relief with Eugene Chiropractic Care: Cox
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.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic recognizes the good of this
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 compared to 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!
