COX Technic

Cox Technic is spinal manipulation performed on a specially designed chiropractic instrument (The Cox Table for flexion-distraction) which has a movable headpiece and a movable caudal piece (that part on which a patient's legs lie). Each section flexes, extends, laterally bends and circumducts (combination of flexion and lateral flexion), tractions and distracts.

Clinically proven to reduce pressure inside the spinal disc, widens the spinal canal, reduces pressure on the spinal nerves, and return motions to spinal joints. Cox Technic is appropriate for low back and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain conditions. Often appropriate, even after spinal surgery.

Cox Technic reduces pain due to disc herniation, slipped disc, ruptured disc, facet syndrome, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, sciatica, and much more.

Cox Technic is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on care for spinal pain conditions. It is low force and uses finesse rather than abrupt force to help restore normal motion to the spine.

Cox Technic seeks to return the patient to his/her desired QUALITY OF LIFE.
