Pain Relief with McHenry Chiropractic Care: Cox
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic incorporates Cox Technic into the
McHenry treatment plan forMcHenry back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height plus a 28% increase in area and a decrease
in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively raises the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this McHenry chiropractic practice) alleviates
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often comes
with 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 manage low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, alleviates
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 provides short-term pain-relief similar
to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s
why OrthoIllinois Chiropractic uses it with our McHenry back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation affects
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That’s a goal of McHenry
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it is affected by pain.

McHenry Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Peculiar how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study reported
that, when asked, young adults recognized that
calcium is important for kids and older adults but not
how important it was for them. (5) Calcium is important
for all ages! Your McHenry chiropractor is ready to talk
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to your next McHenry visit soon at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic!
