Watertown KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Watertown knee pain is a pain that Watertown Wellness Center sees often. Pain meds and surgical options abound while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is showing exciting results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for Watertown back pain and neck pain relief - were customized for use with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in relieving knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores fell 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 fell more dramatically 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 had any adverse side-effects. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Watertown Wellness Center’s Watertown chiropractic care! Watertown knee pain sufferers are welcomed to experience this gentle, relieving Watertown knee pain treatment!

 

Watertown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Watertown elder folks benefit even more. A new article states that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Watertown Wellness Center agrees as these two are seen often in this Watertown chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises relieved pain and improved function for a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Watertown Wellness Center will give you some hip strengthening exercise moves you can do in the convenience of your own home along with the Watertown chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
