Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or
low back pain that is a question for your San Jose chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the inquisitive
patient!) concerning which position is most beneficial.
For the San Jose back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your San Jose spine
specialist, prone is definitely preferred
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered.
At McMurray Chiropractic Solutions prone spinal care is our back pain relief department,
and research approves!
BENEFITS OF PRONE TREATMENT
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions grounds its San Jose
chiropractic treatment on research. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions keeps abreast of13
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a
hallmark of spinal traction might lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions perceives
the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing
the fluid exchange in the disc (as McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is well aware that
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions applies 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 San Jose
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
state that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table during
Cox Technic can be instructed reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions. This indicates
that a patient can be treated by one proficient chiropractor in much the
same way as by another proficient chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
San Jose chiropractor is trained in this. Applying
the proper forces sets up the
best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain
relief for San Jose low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is thrilling to your San Jose chiropractor and relieving
to the San Jose chiropractic patients at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions!
