Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Eugene chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) as to which position is most advantageous.
For the Eugene back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Eugene spine
specialist, prone is certainly preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic centers its Eugene
chiropractic treatment on research. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows
nutrition of the disc counts 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
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Eugene
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Eugene chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces allows the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Eugene low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Eugene chiropractor and alleviating
to the Eugene chiropractic patients at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic!
