Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Groton chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the curious
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Groton back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Groton spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office centers its Groton
chiropractic treatment on research. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows
nutrition of the disc relies 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
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office utilizes an
exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Groton
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
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 this type of table with
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Groton chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the proper forces makes available the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Groton low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Groton chiropractor and alleviating
to the Groton chiropractic patients at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office!
