Chiropractic Solutions Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve San Jose Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely know spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun! No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, San Jose chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the chances of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration ideas, and the knowledge that San Jose chiropractic care at Chiropractic Solutions 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) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published papers indicates that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Chiropractic Solutions! San Jose spinal stenosis patients get relief with our San Jose chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its San Jose sufferers. Researchers discovered 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 along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Chiropractic Solutions offers a similar chiropractic care system with our San Jose spinal stenosis patients. Chiropractic Solutions treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
