Pain Relief with Toronto Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre incorporates Cox Technic into the Toronto treatment plan forToronto back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Toronto chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with 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 the reason Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre uses it with our Toronto back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects 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 Toronto chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
