Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. incorporates Cox Technic into the Auburn treatment plan forAuburn back pain relief. Cox Technic research shows a 17% increase in disc height in addition to the 28% increase in area and a drop in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.

Neuropathic pain joining low back pain is a pain! The good news is that non-thrust, non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is regularly utilized to control 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. Fantastic news! A new rat study confirms that using Cox Technic delivers short-term pain-relief similar to that in human clinical studies.

Further, 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.
