Chiropractic Solutions Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in San Jose for Back Pain Relief

At Chiropractic Solutions, our San Jose chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, known, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in San Jose! In this piece, you will see papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A recent research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is reduced by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Chiropractic Solutions must remind you that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to do. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Chiropractic Solutions finds that many of our patients get even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive issues, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for San Jose 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 certain patients 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 admitted that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies documented that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Chiropractic Solutions proposes 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 explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the moved disc content back to the center and removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce 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! Chiropractic Solutions shares these biomechanical effects with our San Jose back pain patients daily. It is vital to have science behind what we do.

Listen to this PODCAST with Ram Gudavalli, PhD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has led much of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he came here from India! We’re so glad he did.
