Spinal Care Clinic Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Burlington and Hamilton Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely know spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all! No magic pill heals it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, gradually and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the odds of future incidents, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the experience that Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care at Spinal Care Clinic is effective.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports points out that there is indication that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It further highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Spinal Care Clinic! Burlington and Hamilton spinal stenosis patients get relief with our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Burlington and Hamilton sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week involving 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) Spinal Care Clinic follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Burlington and Hamilton spinal stenosis patients. Spinal Care Clinic treats the whole person, not just the pain.
