Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Ashburn chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Ashburn back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Ashburn spine
specialist, prone is surely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
ADVANTAGES OF PRONE TREATMENT
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn grounds its Ashburn
chiropractic treatment on research. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a recent study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn utilizes a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Ashburn
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the
same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Ashburn chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces allows the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Ashburn low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Ashburn chiropractor and relieving
to the Ashburn chiropractic patients at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn!
