Pain Relief with San Jose Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

McMurray Chiropractic Solutions incorporates Cox Technic into the San Jose treatment plan forSan Jose back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height as well as a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this San Jose chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that goes 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 regularly used to control low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, relieves pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted with those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason McMurray Chiropractic Solutions chooses to use it with our San Jose back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation affects 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 is a goal of San Jose chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.
