Pain Relief with Ottawa Chiropractic Care: Cox
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider incorporates Cox Technic into the
Ottawa treatment plan forOttawa back pain relief. Cox Technic
research shows 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.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this Ottawa chiropractic practice) eases
neuropathic pain, pain that spreads 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 commonly
utilized to reduce low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted
with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox
Technic delivers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider chooses to use
it with our Ottawa 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’s a goal of Ottawa
chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system
when it is upset by pain.

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