Pain Relief with New York City Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Innate Wisdom incorporates Cox Technic into the New York City treatment plan forNew York City back pain relief. Cox Technic research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a lowering of intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Innate Wisdom recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this New York City chiropractic practice) diminishes neuropathic pain, pain that extends into the legs that often comes with low back pain. Neuropathic pain coming with low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to manage low back pain. Just one month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Great news! A new study with rats confirms that using Cox Technic produces short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Innate Wisdom uses it with our New York City back pain patients!

Further, 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 New York City chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it is affected by pain.

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

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

We look forward to your next New York City visit soon at Innate Wisdom!
