The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Colorado Springs for Back Pain Relief

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

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain reports that patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation attain 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 decreased by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you say “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR must remind you that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to perform. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a practice to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR finds that many of our patients get even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Colorado Springs 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 is used with the proper 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 instant response to it. They also admitted that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR offers 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 increased in chronic low back pain patients handled with flexion distraction and joint mobilization 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 removed 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! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR talks about these biomechanical effects with our Colorado Springs back pain patients all the time. It’s 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 much 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 came to the US from India! We are so grateful he did.
