Pain Relief with Nashua Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

Moriarty Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the Nashua treatment plan forNashua back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height along with a 28% increase in area and a decrease in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg. (1) Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic recognizes the good of this increase.

And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used in this Nashua chiropractic practice) alleviates 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 fortunate thing is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly utilized 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. Fantastic news! A new rat study reaffirms that using Cox Technic provides short-term pain-relief like that in human clinical studies. (3) That is the reason Moriarty Chiropractic chooses to use it with our Nashua back pain patients!

Further, spinal manipulation affects 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’s a goal of Nashua chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system when it’s distressed by pain.

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

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

We look forward to your next Nashua visit soon at Moriarty Chiropractic!
