  OUR SERVICES: COS/Flexion Distraction



Cox® Technic (aka flexion-distraction or F/D) relieves back and leg pain and neck and arm pain. Disc herniation and/or stenosis may be the cause of pain. Or simple arthritis or a back sprain may be the culprit.

Cox® Technic is a gentle, non-surgical, chiropractic spinal manipulation adjustment procedure.

95% of back pain and neck pain patients DO NOT require surgery.

Cox® Technic is a safe alternative to back surgery. It is also appropriate for failed back surgery patients who still suffer after surgery.

Cox® Technic is a well-researched (with research studies completed and underway), well-referenced (with over 90+ articles in medical and chiropractic journals) chiropractic spinal adjusting manipulation

Cox® Technic drops intradiscal pressures to -192 mmHgand increases the foraminal area by 28%.

Cox® Technic stops pain, realigns the spine and restores ranges of motion inherent to the spine while reducing low back pain, especially in radiculopathy (extremity pain--leg pain or arm pain) patients, better than active exercise therapy.

Innovated by James M. Cox, DC, DACBR, in the 1960's, Cox® Technic is a marriage of osteopathic and chiropractic manipulation principles. It is an accepted and widely used form of spinal manipulation. Today, nearly 60% of chiropractic physicians report using it in their practices.

A select number of chiropractors have advanced their training via postgraduate courses. These "certified" Cox® Technic chiropractic physicians are ready to help you.
