Ashburn Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It is ”in” today in back pain management for back pain relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows our Ashburn chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn shares this discussion about Ashburn spinal decompression and how Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Ashburn Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may assist by reducing herniated discs and taking pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn agrees with this explanation and seeks to do just that with Ashburn chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Ashburn Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That’s why Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn uses it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Biomechanical Outcomes (6)

Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic creates cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.

Clinical Outcomes

Ashburn chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic results in back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, keeping back pain sufferers from crossing over into the more expensive as well as life-altering category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Ashburn spinal decompression reduces radiculopathy (leg pain) commandingly compared to medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients cared for with spinal decompression as Cox Technic needed less care (3) and reported less pain (4) in the year following the study than did the PT patients.
