Chiropractic Care Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in West Palm Beach for Back Pain Relief

At Chiropractic Care, our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, known, well-studied and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in West Palm Beach! In this piece, you’ll see studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation reach at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is reduced by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you say “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Chiropractic Care must comment that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to offer. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is remarkable! Chiropractic Care finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive concerns, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for West Palm Beach back pain sufferers who really want to get back to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for certain patients and when it’s used with the proper patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can provide a distractive force and that patients exhibited an immediate response to it. They also admitted that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can show researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Chiropractic Care offers that Cox® Technic is well-researched, segment specific spinal manipulation with predictable clinical outcomes.

KOREA: COX® TECHNIC POSITIVELY IMPACTS THE SPINE

And in Korea, researchers discovered that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does this happen? They explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the moved disc content back to the center and got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al found in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Chiropractic Care talks about these biomechanical effects with our West Palm Beach back pain patients daily. It is key to have science behind what we do.

Listen to this PODCAST with Ram Gudavalli, PhD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has headed much of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he came to the US from India! We’re so grateful he did.
