Spinal decompression. It’s ”in”
today in back pain management for back pain relief. Complete Health Medical P.C. knows our East Setauket
chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Complete Health Medical P.C.
shares this discussion about East Setauket spinal
decompression and how Complete Health Medical P.C. addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.
East Setauket Spinal Decompression Defined
Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced
website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and
position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative
pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may help
reduce herniated discs and take
pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water,
oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12)
Complete Health Medical P.C. concurs with this characterization
and seeks to do just that with East Setauket chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.
East Setauket Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic
Cox Technic used by Complete Health Medical P.C. is well
documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain
and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It’s effective. That’s why Complete Health Medical P.C. uses it. A team of chiropractic
and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians
design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary,
federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the
published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Biomechanical Outcomes (6)
Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates
lumbar spine intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192
mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (7) Spinal
decompression via Cox Technic creates cervical spine
intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about
1260 mmHg. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.
East Setauket chiropractic spinal decompression with
Cox Technic produces back pain relief for lumbar spine back
pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases
study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90
days, curbing back pain sufferers from entering the more high-priced as well as life-changing
category of chronic pain. (8) This type of East Setauket spinal decompression
lessens radiculopathy (leg pain) commandingly
compared to medical conservative care, mainly
physical therapy (PT). (9) Additionally, patients cared for
with spinal decompression as Cox Technic sought less
care (3) and said they had less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.
