Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve St. Francisville Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun! No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, St. Francisville chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the chances of future incidents, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification tips, and the experience that St. Francisville chiropractic care at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is effective.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable for pain decrease and disability improvement. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published papers points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville! St. Francisville spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our St. Francisville chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its St. Francisville sufferers. Researchers found that twice a week treatment consisting of manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville follows a similar chiropractic care system with our St. Francisville spinal stenosis patients.
