Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Malverne chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Malverne back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Malverne spine
specialist, prone is certainly desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Malverne Health & Wellness prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Malverne Health & Wellness bases its Malverne
chiropractic treatment on research. Malverne Health & Wellness keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a recent 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 reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Malverne Health & Wellness is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Malverne Health & Wellness uses a distinctive 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 using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Malverne
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
state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Malverne Health & Wellness. 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
Malverne chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces makes available the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Malverne low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Malverne chiropractor and relieving
to the Malverne chiropractic patients at Malverne Health & Wellness!
