Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Largo chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Largo back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Largo spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At Hollstrom & Associates Inc prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Hollstrom & Associates Inc grounds its Largo
chiropractic treatment on research. Hollstrom & Associates Inc keeps up with
new 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 reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc sees
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Hollstrom & Associates Inc is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is documented
in the medical research literature and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Largo
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
explain 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 reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Hollstrom & Associates Inc. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Largo chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Largo low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Largo chiropractor and alleviating
to the Largo chiropractic patients at Hollstrom & Associates Inc!
