Is Murfreesboro Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or low back pain that is an issue for your Murfreesboro chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and sometimes the inquisitive patient!) about which position is most beneficial. For the Murfreesboro back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating doctor, prone (face down) is more useful so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Murfreesboro spine specialist, prone is surely favored as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is used. At Most Chiropractic Clinic prone spinal care is our back pain relief domain, and research approves!


Most Chiropractic Clinic centers its Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment on research. Most Chiropractic Clinic keeps abreast of13 new spinal care research. In a new study of traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated that traction in the prone position brought about immediate and significant improvements. (1) Another study found that a hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees the advantages of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing the fluid exchange in the disc (as Most Chiropractic Clinic is well aware that nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why disc nutrition supplementation is regularly included in the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.


Most Chiropractic Clinic applies an exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain.  In applying Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Murfreesboro chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers explain that the proper forces a chiropractor is to apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on such a table during Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Most Chiropractic Clinic. This indicates that a patient can be treated by one trained chiropractor in much the same way as by another trained chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your Murfreesboro chiropractor is so trained. Applying the appropriate forces makes available the best chance to replicate the clinical back pain relief for Murfreesboro low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers have recorded in their research studies. That is exciting to your Murfreesboro chiropractor and alleviating to the Murfreesboro chiropractic patients at Most Chiropractic Clinic!
