Cox Flexion Distraction Technique
Cox Flexion Distraction Decompression Therapy is a gentle adjusting technique that can be used on the entire spine. The procedures have been developed by Dr. James M. Cox over the last 40 years due to the many efforts of researchers, and fellow chiropractic physicians. The Cox Technique is indicated for the relief of pain from disc bulges and herniations, failed back surgery syndrome, leg pain, sciatica, spondylolesthesis, facet syndrome, rib subluxations,, thoracic pain, scoliosis, spinal pain due to arthritis, and spinal stenosis. Patients with any of the above conditions, who's condition is also complicated by mild to moderate decreased bone density (also called Osteopena) are good candidates for this technique, when general manipulation is contraindicated.
Treatment is possible in any phase of the problem, acute, sub-acute, or chronic.
This technique is unique, adding decompression to the standard adjustment. A unique table allows the doctor to to provide treatment in all ranges of motion as well as axial (in a vertical plane-head to toe).
