Cox Flexion Distraction Technique

What is Cox Technique?  

The Cox Technic (or Cox Flexion Distraction Technique) was designed as a safe alternative to invasive spinal surgeries. Many of the patients treated with this technique have either already had surgery, and are still experiencing pain, or have been told that they need surgery and are looking for a conservative approach. 

Conditions treated by Cox Technique include: 

  • Disc Herniation/Rupture
  • Sciatic Pain
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Neck pain, arm pain, hand pain, shoulder pain and numbness in the upper extremity.
  • Low back pain, hip pain, leg pain, foot pain and lower extremity numbness

How does Cox Technique work?

Cox Technic is given using a special chiropractic treatment table, known as the Cox Flexion Distraction Table. It has been engineered to provide a smooth tractioning of the spine through the application of gentle and specific pressures. By applying specific forces to the spine, along with distraction and decompression, Cox technique works to increase the intervertebral disc space, decrease pressure within the disc to assist in the healing of herniation, increase the size of the nerve openings between vertebrae so that nerves become un-pinched and the restoration of spinal segment range of motion.
