Spinal Care Clinic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Burlington and Hamilton for Back Pain Relief

At Spinal Care Clinic, our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, recognized, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Burlington and Hamilton! In this article, you will see studies 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 reports that patients treated 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 feel “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Spinal Care Clinic must remind you that medicine now sees 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to do. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a practice to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is remarkable! Spinal Care Clinic finds that many of our patients attain even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive issues, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Burlington and Hamilton 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 proper 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 instant response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can display researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area increases by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Spinal Care Clinic 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 discovered that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients handled with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. Why did this happen? They described that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to pull the moved disc content back to the center and got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease 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! Spinal Care Clinic shares these biomechanical effects with our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients all the time. It’s 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 – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, adds to the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We’re so thankful he did.
