Pain Relief with Montreal Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic incorporates Cox Technic into the Montreal treatment plan forMontreal back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Montreal chiropractic practice) relieves neuropathic pain, pain that spreads into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is often used to reduce 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 compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic offers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use it with our Montreal back pain patients!

Also, spinal manipulation influences pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of Montreal chiropractic treatment: to soother the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

Montreal Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”

Funny how recommendations are always for somebody else! A Canadian study shared that, when asked, young adults recognized that calcium is critical for kids and older adults but not how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is essential for all ages! Your Montreal chiropractor is ready to talk just how important it is for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic!
