CHIROPRACTIC COX® TECHNIC CREATES VERTEBRAL MOTION &
INCREASED SPINAL CANAL SPACE
Do you have back pain?
Spinal stenosis? Degenerative disc disease? Do you know what they have in
common (besides pain)? Reduced spinal canal area. With disc
degeneration, the disc shrinks, leading to a decreased spinal canal area. With spinal stenosis, a(n) disc
bulge, herniated disc, osteophyte, discal cyst, synovial cyst,
spinal cyst diminishes the spinal canal area. A new paper explained
how chiropractic flexion distraction treatment, specifically Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and mobilization, enlarged
the spinal canal area and created vertebral motions. The new
study just published in January 2023 stated that chiropractic
flexion distraction increased spinal area, height, and
to increased nerve foraminal area. (1)
Such spinal alterations
set the scene for involved
spinal elements like spinal nerves to ‘breathe’ leading to subsequent
(though sometimes faster or even instantaneous
for some patients) back pain relief. Outcomes and published
research like this are the forces behind our choice to use
gentle, safe chiropractic treatment approaches like Cox® Technic that has research explaining its biomechanical effects on the spine.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise to Open Lumbar Spinal Canal Area
Back pain sufferers are frequently advised
to perform exercise that strengthen spinal,
gluteal, and core muscles as a way to complement
their in-office chiropractic care. Classic lumbar flexion
(Williams) exercises have been standard since the 1930s as they limit lumbar
extension while enhancing lumbar flexion with high
levels of research evidence (III and IV) support. A common
exercise sequence would have a patient lie on the floor, hands at the side, knees bent, then simply tighten abdominal
and gluteal muscles while flattening the spine against
the floor. The next would be a knee-chest motion (each single knee
then both knees) exercise. (2) There are more such exercises
in the series, but Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. be thrilled for
our new Auburn back pain patients to start with these easy
moves on day 1 (after we go through a complete examinations and set a treatment plan, of course). Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
looks forward to talking soon about you and your spinal
stenotic, disc degenerative spine and any exercises that may help!
