Pain Relief with Oxford Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Satterwhite Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Oxford treatment plan forOxford back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Oxford chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly utilized to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Satterwhite Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Oxford back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Oxford chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it is upset by pain.
