Cox Decompression Distraction Manipulation Technique

Home \ Treatments & Techniques \ Cox Decompression Distraction Manipulation Technique

Cox® Technic is a non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on The Cox® Table. The table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation. The goal of Cox® Technic is to help the spinal pain patient go from “pain” to “no pain” as quickly as possible.
Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:

  • Dropping intradiscal pressure
  • Widening the spinal canal foraminal area
  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • Returning motion to the spinal joints

Evidence-based Cox® Technic is appropriate for conditions causing low back and leg pain as well as neck, arm, and pelvic pain. It also reduces pain attributable to:

  • Disc Herniation
  • Slipped Disc
  • Ruptured Disc
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Headache
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Whiplash-type injuries
  • Persistent pain after back surgery
  • Scoliosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pregnancy back pain

What is a Cox® Technic Treatment Like?

After undergoing a thorough examination that leads the doctor to a specific diagnosis of the spine condition to be treated.

  • The patient lies face down on a Cox® Table
  • Tolerance testing is performed prior to the application of Cox® Technic to ensure that the treatment will not further aggravate the condition
  • In delivering the treatment, the physician concentrates on one vertebral motion segment at a time
  • The goal is to reduce stenotic effects by dropping intradiscal pressure, thus allowing disc reduction, an increase in the size of the intervertebral foramen, and a reduction of pressure on the dorsal root ganglion and the exiting nerve root
