Soft Health and Healing Clinic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Brooks for Back Pain Relief

At Soft Health and Healing Clinic, our Brooks chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is renowned, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Brooks! In this piece, you will read papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it relieves back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A recent research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for 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 think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Soft Health and Healing Clinic must comment 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) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! Soft Health and Healing Clinic finds that many of our patients get even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients vary and have their own unique issues, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Brooks back pain sufferers who just want to get back to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it is used with the proper patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients exhibited an instant response to it. They also admitted that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can share 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic proposes 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 increased in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. Why did this happen? They explained that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to pull the displaced 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! Soft Health and Healing Clinic talks about these biomechanical effects with our Brooks back pain patients all the time. It’s key 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 managed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into 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 are so glad he did.
