Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Paramus chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Paramus back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Paramus spine
specialist, prone is certainly favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center grounds its Paramus
chiropractic treatment on research. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center notes
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center uses a distinctive form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Paramus
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Paramus chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the proper forces allows the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Paramus low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Paramus chiropractor and relieving
to the Paramus chiropractic patients at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center!
