More Detail

Cox® Technic is a non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on The Cox® Table. The table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation. The goal of Cox® Technic is to help the spinal pain patient go from “pain” to “no pain” as quickly as possible.

Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:

  • Dropping intradiscal pressure
  • Widening the spinal canal foraminal area
  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • Returning motion to the spinal joints

Abstracts & Studies

After undergoing a thorough examination that leads the doctor to a specific diagnosis of the spine condition to be treated.

  • The patient lies face down on a Cox® Table
  • Tolerance testing is performed prior to the application of Cox® Technic to ensure that the treatment will not further aggravate the condition
  • In delivering the treatment, the physician concentrates on one vertebral motion segment at a time
  • The goal is to reduce stenotic effects by dropping intradiscal pressure, thus allowing disc reduction, an increase in the size of the intervertebral foramen, and a reduction of pressure on the dorsal root ganglion and the exiting nerve root
