Pain Relief with Ashburn Chiropractic Care: Cox
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn incorporates Cox Technic into the
Ashburn treatment plan forAshburn back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a decrease
in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Ashburn chiropractic practice) relieves
neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes
with low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low
back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly
used to control low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox
Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar
to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s
why Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn chooses to use
it with our Ashburn back pain patients!
Further, 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 Ashburn
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it is affected by pain.
