West Des Moines Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression. It’s common today in back pain management for back pain relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows our West Des Moines chiropractic patients hear about spinal decompression, too. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa shares this discussion about West Des Moines spinal decompression and how Executive Chiropractic of Iowa addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.

West Des Moines Spinal Decompression Defined

Spinal decompression is defined by the oft-referenced website “WebMD” as a gentle stretching of the spine that changes the force and position of the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs. How? The negative pressure generated by spinal decompression over time may help reduce herniated discs and take pressure off of the spinal nerves and other spinal structures and allow water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to get into the discs so they can heal. (12) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa concurs with this description and aspires to do just that with West Des Moines chiropractic care via spinal manipulation with the chiropractic method known as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.

Cox Technic offered at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That’s why Executive Chiropractic of Iowa chooses to apply it. A team of chiropractic and medical researchers and research-center based as well as private-practice clinicians design the studies, participate in them, and publish the outcomes of these multi-disciplinary, federally funded, multi-facility, randomized clinical control trials using the published protocols documented in textbooks and journals. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

(7) Spinal decompression via Cox Technic allows for cervical spine intradiscal pressure drops of as much as 168 kPa (kilopascals) which is about 1260 mmHg.
