Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in St. Francisville for Back Pain Relief

At Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville, our St. Francisville chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is renowned, well-studied and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in St. Francisville! In this article, you’ll see papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it relieves 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 are superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols seek at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is decreased by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you feel “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville must share that medicine now considers 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to offer. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville finds that many of our patients attain even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients vary and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for St. Francisville back pain sufferers who just want to return to a pleasing quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it is applied to the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients showed an immediate response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can show researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies documented that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area increases by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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 revealed that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. Why did this happen? They described that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the displaced disc content back to the center and removed 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! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville shares these biomechanical effects with our St. Francisville back pain patients daily. It’s vital to have science behind what we do.

Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has managed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction.
