Pain Relief with Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

New Hampshire Spine and Sport incorporates Cox Technic into the Southern New Hampshire treatment plan forSouthern New Hampshire back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Southern New Hampshire chiropractic practice) alleviates neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often utilized to control 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. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why New Hampshire Spine and Sport chooses to use it with our Southern New Hampshire back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation influences 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 Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it’s upset by pain.
