Pain Relief with La Grande Chiropractic Care: Cox Technic

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. (1) Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower lumbar spine discs. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC recognizes the good of this increase.

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.
