Pain Relief with Ashburn Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn incorporates Cox Technic into the Ashburn treatment plan forAshburn back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates 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. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn recognizes the good of this increase.

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. Great 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.
