Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your Buffalo, NY chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) regarding which position is most advantageous.
For the Buffalo, NY 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 Buffalo, NY spine
specialist, prone is definitely favored
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At The Novelli Wellness Center prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
The Novelli Wellness Center bases its Buffalo, NY
chiropractic treatment on research. The Novelli Wellness Center keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position resulted in 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) The Novelli Wellness Center notes
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as The Novelli Wellness Center is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
The Novelli Wellness Center utilizes 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 using Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Buffalo, NY
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
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with
Cox Technic can be taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at The Novelli Wellness Center. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Buffalo, NY chiropractor is so trained. Using
the proper forces allows the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Buffalo, NY low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your Buffalo, NY chiropractor and relieving
to the Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients at The Novelli Wellness Center!
