Spinal decompression. It’s ”in” today in back pain management for back pain relief. Most Chiropractic Clinic knows our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients are curious about spinal decompression, too. Most Chiropractic Clinic shares this discussion about Murfreesboro spinal decompression and how Most Chiropractic Clinic addresses spinal decompression with Cox Technic.
Murfreesboro 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 assist by reducing herniated discs and taking 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) Most Chiropractic Clinic agrees with this description and seeks to do just that with Murfreesboro chiropractic care via spinal manipulation in the form of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.
Murfreesboro Chiropractic Spinal Decompression: Cox Technic
Cox Technic used by Most Chiropractic Clinic is well documented with biomechanical and clinical research studies to reduce back pain and neck pain and drop intradiscal pressures. It is effective. That is why Most Chiropractic Clinic 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)
Biomechanical Outcomes (6)
Spinal decompression via Cox Technic biomechanically creates lumbar spine intradiscal pressure falls to as low as -192 mmHg and increases in intervertebral foramen nerve opening area by 28% and disc height by 2mm. (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. (13) Cox Technic spinal decompression takes pressure off the spinal discs and nerves.
Murfreesboro chiropractic spinal decompression with Cox Technic produces back pain relief for lumbar spine back pain patients in an average of 12 visits and 29 days. (8) In the 1000 cases study, 91% of participating chiropractic patients found relief in less than 90 days, preventing back pain sufferers from crossing over into the more expensive as well as life-changing category of chronic pain. (8) This type of Murfreesboro spinal decompression lessens radiculopathy (leg pain) superiorly when put up against medical conservative care, primarily physical therapy (PT). (9) Further, patients treated with spinal decompression as Cox Technic needed less care (3) and said they had less pain (4) in the following year of the study than did the PT patients.

In addition to the spinal decompression which occurs when the Cox technique is performed on patients, we also offer spinal decompression in the form of cervical and lumbar traction which is shown at the bottom of this page.
