Executive Chiropractic of Iowa recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this West Des Moines chiropractic practice) eases
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low
back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly
utilized to manage low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, lessens
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain compared to those without leg pain. Fantastic news! A
new study with rats confirms that using Cox
Technic provides short-term pain-relief similar
to that in human clinical studies. (3) That is why Executive Chiropractic of Iowa chooses to use
it with our West Des Moines back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation affects
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 West Des Moines
chiropractic treatment: to calm the nervous system
when it’s affected by pain.
