Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your Montreal chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive
patient!) regarding which position is most beneficial.
For the Montreal back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your Montreal spine
specialist, prone is surely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief specialty,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic centers its Montreal
chiropractic treatment on research. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic keeps up with
new spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated
that traction in the prone position brought about 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees
the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows
nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why
disc nutrition supplementation is often included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Montreal
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a stationary
chest support piece and movable support piece for your legs. Researchers
note 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 taught consistently for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
Montreal chiropractor is so trained. Applying
the proper forces allows the
best opportunity to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for Montreal low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have documented in their research projects. That
is exciting to your Montreal chiropractor and alleviating
to the Montreal chiropractic patients at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic!
