Cox Technic

Guest Family Chiropractic PLLC offers this highly-effective spinal manipulation and decompression technique. The Cox Technic offers a non-surgical alternative to a more invasive surgery for relief of pain in the neck, arm, back and leg, especially for the disc herniation and stenosis cases. Cox Technic's effectiveness for these more complex conditions makes it a choice approach for less complex conditions of back and neck pain as well.

Cox Technic is a gentle distraction (stretching) adjustment of the spine to accomplish the following benefits for the patient with back or extremity pain:

  1. Increase the intervertebral disc space opening
  2. Decrease the pressure within the disc space to aid healing of disc herniation
  3. Increase the size of the nerve openings in the spine to reduce pinched nerves
  4. Restore range of motion to spinal segments

The above changes in the spine allow the following healing benefits to patients with back pain or pain down the arms or legs:

  1. Stimulation of circulation into the intervertebral disc to aid in absorption of the pain-causing chemicals while increasing the absorption of nutrients into the disc to aid healing and regeneration of the disc.
  2. Dropping the pressure inside the disc creates a force inside the disc to reduce the bulging of herniated disc material.
  3. Stenosis patients benefit by increase in the size of the nerve openings which is the sight of nerve compression and pinched nerves.
  4. Range of motion spinal manipulation restores more freedom of movement while also stimulating nerves in the extremities, spinal cord, and brain to produce chemicals that reduce pain and create a sense of well-being.
  5. As these above changes occur under treatment with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction spinal manipulation, pain in the extremity can reduce by centralizing or isolating the pain to the low back and hip area.
  6. Three months time is necessary to allow healing of herniated disc and stenosis caused pain. Some patients receive full relief of pain and some as much as possible, requiring continued observance of rules of exercise, proper ergonomics of lifting, and continued monitoring of care.
