Pain Relief with Groton Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office incorporates Cox Technic into the Groton treatment plan forGroton 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 raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Groton chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly utilized to reduce 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 offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office chooses to use it with our Groton back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Groton chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.

Groton Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults knew that calcium is important for kids and older adults but not how essential it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential for all ages! Your Groton chiropractor is ready to talk just how valuable it is for you.

We look forward to your next Groton visit soon at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office!
