Rethwill Chiropractic Clinics October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



Eugene knee pain is a pain that Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees a lot. Pain meds and surgical options are commonly recommended while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is revealing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic all the time for Eugene back pain and neck pain relief - were customized for use with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in lessening knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients experienced any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Check out a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s Eugene chiropractic care! Eugene knee pain sufferers are welcomed to feel this gentle, relieving Eugene knee pain treatment!


Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Eugene older folks gain even more. A recent article states that chronic low back pain sufferers usually have hip abductor weakness, too. (Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic concurs as these two are seen often in this Eugene chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function for a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do in the convenience of your own home along with the Eugene chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
