Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Ottawa chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the interested
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the Ottawa 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 Ottawa spine
specialist, prone is surely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research agrees!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider centers its Ottawa
chiropractic treatment on research. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a recent 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 found that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider perceives
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider uses an
exceptional 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 Ottawa
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a specially
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 such a table during
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider. This means a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in
much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Ottawa chiropractor is so trained. Using
the appropriate forces makes available the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for Ottawa low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research studies. That
is thrilling to your Ottawa chiropractor and relieving
to the Ottawa chiropractic patients at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider!
