Cox, flexion/ distraction

Cox Technic is research-documented spinal manipulation to relieve lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain and a host of other spinal related conditions like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain, and pregnancy related back pain. Cox Technic’s developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on documenting the science of this non-surgical alternative to back surgery approach to back pain relief in the hands of well-trained back specialists.

Cox Flexion – Distraction Therapy does a number of things. It can decrease disc protrusion. It also has the capability to enlarge the intervertebral foramina opening by twenty eight percent. Cox flexion also reduces painful pressure on the spinal nerve, along with repositions of the vertebral joints to enable less painful movement, all while significantly increasing the intervertebral disc height.

There are a medley of conditions that can be treated by Cox Flexion – Distraction Therapy. Degenerated discs, herniated, bulging, and ruptured discs can be treated with the Cox Technique. Leg and hip pain brought on by sciatica, along with neck and arm pain, post-operative failed back surgical syndromes, and spinal stenosis are also among the things that can be treated by Cox Flexion – Distraction Therapy. 

Cox Technic is spinal manipulation performed on a specially designed chiropractic instrument, which has a movable headpiece and a movable caudal piece (that part on which a patient’s legs lie). Each section flexes, extends, laterally bends and circumducts (combination of flexion and lateral flexion), and long-y-axis plane distracts. The Cox Technic is an advanced and gentle chiropractic adjustment for neck and back pain that drastically reduces the ill effects, risks and high costs of surgery and can be more effective. Treatment occurs on a specially designed, partially motorized chiropractic table, The Cox Table for flexion-distraction. The table has a movable headpiece and a movable caudal piece, which is the part on which a patients legs lie. Each section flexes, extends, laterally bends and circumducts (a combination of flexion and lateral flexion) and long-y-axis plane distracts.

Cox Technic drops intradiscal pressure, widens the spinal canal, reduces pressure on the spinal nerves, and return motions to spinal joints. The technique is appropriate for low back and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain conditions. Additionally, it has been proven to reduce pain due to disc herniation, slipped disc, ruptured disc, facet syndrome, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, sciatica, and much more. Cox Technic is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on care for spinal pain conditions. It can effectively return a patient to his/her desired quality of life.
