Pain Relief with Buffalo, NY Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Disc Centers Of America incorporates Cox Technic into the Buffalo, NY treatment plan forBuffalo, NY back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates 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) Disc Centers Of America recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Buffalo, NY chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes with 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 used to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Disc Centers Of America uses it with our Buffalo, NY back pain patients!

Further, 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’s a goal of Buffalo, NY chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it’s affected by pain.
