Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or low back pain that is a question for your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive patient!) concerning which position is most advantageous. For the Southern New Hampshire 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 Southern New Hampshire spine specialist, prone is definitely favored as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered. At New Hampshire Spine and Sport prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty, and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
New Hampshire Spine and Sport grounds its Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment on research. New Hampshire Spine and Sport keeps abreast of13 new spinal care research. In a new study of traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated that traction in the prone position brought about immediate and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport notes the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving the fluid exchange in the disc (as New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
New Hampshire Spine and Sport utilizes an exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving chest support piece and mobile 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 reliably for clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at New Hampshire Spine and Sport. This indicates that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor just like another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor is trained in this. Applying the appropriate forces sets up the best chance to replicate the clinical back pain relief for Southern New Hampshire low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers have documented in their research studies. That is exciting to your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor and alleviating to the Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients at New Hampshire Spine and Sport!
