Pain Relief with La Grande Chiropractic Care: Cox
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC incorporates Cox Technic into the
La Grande treatment plan forLa Grande back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height as
well as a 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this La Grande chiropractic practice) relieves
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain with low
back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly
used to reduce 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 contrasted
with those without leg pain. Great news! A
new rat study reaffirms that using Cox
Technic offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s
why Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC chooses to use
it with our La Grande back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation influences
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’s a goal of La Grande
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it is affected by pain.

La Grande Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for somebody else! A Canadian study reported
that, when questioned, 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 La Grande chiropractor is ready to discuss
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC!
