Pain Relief with Largo Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Hollstrom & Associates Inc incorporates Cox Technic into the Largo treatment plan forLargo back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Largo chiropractic practice) eases neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to control 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 compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses it with our Largo back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin along with interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Largo chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.

“You Need It. I don’t.”

Curious how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study reported that, when questioned, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how essential it was for them. (5) Calcium is important for all ages! Your Largo chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to your next Largo visit soon at Hollstrom & Associates Inc!
