Southern New Hampshire Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s ”in” today in back pain management for back pain relief. New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients hear about spinal decompression, too. New Hampshire Spine and Sport shares this discussion about Southern New Hampshire spinal decompression and how New Hampshire Spine and Sport addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

Southern New Hampshire 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) New Hampshire Spine and Sport agrees with this explanation and aspires to do just that with Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Southern New Hampshire Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic

Cox Technic offered at New Hampshire Spine and Sport is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That is why New Hampshire Spine and Sport chooses to apply 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 allows for 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

(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 Southern New Hampshire spinal decompression relieves radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly compared to medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients cared for with spinal decompression as Cox Technic took less care (3) and reported less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
