Apple Country Chiropractic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Williamson for Back Pain Relief

At Apple Country Chiropractic, our Williamson chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is recognized, researched and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in Williamson! In this article, you’ll see papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding 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 stand 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 think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Apple Country Chiropractic 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 valuable to perform. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is remarkable! Apple Country Chiropractic finds that many of our patients attain 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 Williamson back pain sufferers who really want to return to a pleasing quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it’s used with the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can provide a distractive force and that patients exhibited 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 display 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 increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic 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 handled with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does 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 got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al discovered in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Apple Country Chiropractic shares these biomechanical effects with our Williamson back pain patients all the time. It is important 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 directed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We’re so grateful he did.
