Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Toronto chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the Toronto 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 Toronto spine
specialist, prone is certainly favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research agrees!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre bases its Toronto
chiropractic treatment on research. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre keeps abreast of13
current 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 could lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre utilizes a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its
relief of back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Toronto
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during
Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Toronto chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the appropriate forces sets up the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Toronto low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Toronto chiropractor and alleviating
to the Toronto chiropractic patients at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre!
