Pain Relief with New York Chiropractic Care: Cox
Dr. Gary Stefanick incorporates Cox Technic into the
New York treatment plan forNew York back pain relief. Cox Technic
research demonstrates a 17% increase in disc height as
well as a 28% increase in area and a decrease
in intradiscal pressures to as low as a -192 mmHg.
Traction effectively increases the disc height of lower
lumbar spine discs. (2)
Dr. Gary Stefanick recognizes the good of this
And flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic, distraction manipulation as used
in this New York chiropractic practice) alleviates
neuropathic pain, pain that goes into the legs that often accompanies low back pain. Neuropathic pain joining low
back pain is a pain! The fortunate thing is that non-thrust,
non-drug spinal manipulation like Cox Technic is commonly
used to control low back pain. Just one
month of Cox Technic, a form of chiropractic spinal manipulation, eases
pain in chronic low back pain patients with leg pain contrasted
with those without leg pain. Great news! A
new study with rats reaffirms that using Cox
Technic offers short-term pain-relief akin to that in human clinical studies. (3) That’s the reason Dr. Gary Stefanick chooses to use
it with our New York back pain patients!
Also, spinal manipulation influences
pain regulators in the nervous system like substance-p, neurotensin, and oxytocin
as well as interleukin and cortisol (“the stress
hormone”) levels after treatment. (4) That is a goal of New York
chiropractic treatment: to quieten the nervous system
when it is affected by pain.

New York Chiropractic Tip of the Month: Take Calcium
“You Need It. I don’t.”
Funny how recommendations are
always for someone else! A Canadian study reported
that, when asked, young adults recognized that
calcium is essential for kids and older adults but not
how critical it was for them. (5) Calcium is important
for all ages! Your New York chiropractor is ready to discuss
just how valuable it is for you.
We look forward to seeing
you soon at Dr. Gary Stefanick!
