Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Oxford chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) about which position is most advantageous.
For the Oxford back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Oxford spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Satterwhite Chiropractic prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Satterwhite Chiropractic grounds its Oxford
chiropractic treatment on research. Satterwhite Chiropractic keeps abreast of13
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
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) Satterwhite Chiropractic perceives
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Satterwhite Chiropractic knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Satterwhite Chiropractic utilizes an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Oxford
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile 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 Satterwhite Chiropractic. This means a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Oxford chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces makes available the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Oxford low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Oxford chiropractor and alleviating
to the Oxford chiropractic patients at Satterwhite Chiropractic!
