How San Jose Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a San Jose motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Luckily, the San Jose chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Chiropractic Solutions can help ease your auto accident pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after a car accident.


A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings found a wide range of impairment after a MVA - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% - 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the biggest risks for permanent injury status. This led the authors to suggest the development of a global way of evaluating medical impairment after MVAs to reduce psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In creating guidelines to manage traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wanted to partner with their healthcare team, desired a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and valued simple explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who were concerned about returning to work, researchers found that those with higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do that. (3) Chiropractic Solutions encourages you to be optimistic and invites you to be a part of the team for healing!!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our San Jose patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to decrease inflammation and alleviate back pain. It is commonly used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, post-surgical low back or neck pain, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to manipulate the spine. This helps to restore mobility, decrease inflammation, and ease pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without using drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to apply pressure to certain points on the spine in order to attain the most relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries related to auto accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated appropriately.
