Pain Relief with Malverne Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Malverne Health & Wellness incorporates Cox Technic into the Malverne treatment plan forMalverne back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Malverne chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why Malverne Health & Wellness uses it with our Malverne back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Malverne chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

Malverne Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study shared that, when questioned, young adults knew that calcium is important for kids and older adults but not how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is key for all ages! Your Malverne chiropractor is ready to discuss just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Malverne Health & Wellness!
