East Setauket Spinal Decompression

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. Here is a 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.

Clinical Outcomes

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.
