Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Watertown chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the interested
patient!) about which position is most advantageous.
For the Watertown back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Watertown spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Watertown Wellness Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Watertown Wellness Center bases its Watertown
chiropractic treatment on research. Watertown Wellness Center keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about 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) Watertown Wellness Center notes
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Watertown Wellness Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Watertown Wellness Center uses an
exceptional 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 applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Watertown
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Watertown Wellness Center. 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
Watertown chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the proper forces sets up the
best chance to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Watertown low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is exciting to your Watertown chiropractor and alleviating
to the Watertown chiropractic patients at Watertown Wellness Center!
