Face up? Face down? When treating neck pain or
low back pain that is an issue for your La Grande chiropractor
and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the inquisitive
patient!) about which position is most beneficial.
For the La Grande back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating
doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she is able
to get his or her hands on the spine. For your La Grande spine
specialist, prone is surely desired
as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used.
At Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain,
and research approves!
PROS OF PRONE TREATMENT
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC centers its La Grande
chiropractic treatment on research. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC keeps up with
current spinal care research. In a new study of
traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores showed
that traction in the prone position brought about immediate
and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a
hallmark of spinal traction may well lie in the fluid
exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees
the values of relaxing the trunk muscles, improving
the fluid exchange in the disc (as Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is well aware that
nutrition of the disc counts on this and is the reason
disc nutrition supplementation is often recommended as part
of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.
COX TECHNIC PRONE MANIPULATION
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses a special form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain. In applying Cox Technic flexion
distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your La Grande
chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely
designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving
chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers
document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to
apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table with
Cox Technic can be taught reliably for
clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. This means a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor like another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your
La Grande chiropractor is trained in this. Using
the proper forces sets up the
best chance to reproduce the clinical back pain
relief for La Grande low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers
have recorded in their research projects. That
is exciting to your La Grande chiropractor and alleviating
to the La Grande chiropractic patients at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC!
