Pain Relief with Ottawa Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider recognizes the good of this increase.

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.
