Groton Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It is common today in back pain management for back pain relief. Hutter Chiropractic Office knows our Groton chiropractic patients hear about spinal decompression, too. Here is a discussion about Groton spinal decompression and how Hutter Chiropractic Office addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Groton Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the well-known 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 produced from spinal decompression over time may help reduce herniated discs and take 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) Hutter Chiropractic Office concurs with this characterization and seeks to do just that with Groton chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the procedure known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Groton Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 falls 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

Groton chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic produces 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, curbing back pain sufferers from entering the more expensive as well as life-altering category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Groton spinal decompression alleviates radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly compared to medical conservative care, mainly physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients cared for with spinal decompression as Cox Technic obtained less care (3) and described less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
