Pain Relief with Paramus Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center incorporates Cox Technic into the Paramus treatment plan forParamus back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Paramus chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly used to control 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 delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center chooses to use it with our Paramus back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects 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 Paramus chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.
