Toronto KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH COX® FLEXION-DISTRACTION

Toronto knee pain is a pain that Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees often. Pain medications and surgical options are plentiful while a new non-surgical chiropractic protocol is revealing quite promising results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique utilized in clinic all the time for Toronto back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for use with knee pain. They are shown to be of help in relieving knee pain. Overall, knee pain patients’ mean pain scores dropped from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores fell more dramatically from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores dropped from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. No one in the study had any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre’s Toronto chiropractic care! Toronto knee pain sufferers are invited to experience this gentle, relieving Toronto knee pain treatment!

 

Toronto CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

All of us can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and Toronto older folks benefit even more. A recent article reports that chronic low back pain sufferers typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre agrees as these two are seen frequently in this Toronto chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function in a set of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre will give you some hip strengthening exercises you can do at home alongside the Toronto chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to achieve such relief yourself.
