Pain Relief with Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Spinal Care Clinic incorporates Cox Technic into the Burlington and Hamilton treatment plan forBurlington and Hamilton back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Spinal Care Clinic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates 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 produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s why Spinal Care Clinic uses it with our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

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

Funny how recommendations are always for someone else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is key for all ages! Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Spinal Care Clinic!
