The Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique for Individuals in Clearwater, FL

Back & Neck Pain Center in Clearwater, Florida, utilizes the Cox flexion-distraction technique, also known as the Cox® Technic, to help our patients find relief from lower back pain. This evidence-based technique was developed by Dr. James M. Cox and is a more gentle way of adjusting the spine to relieve spinal pain and pressure. It is performed on a specialty table that has moving parts. During the treatment, the chiropractor slowly adjusts the table to gently stretch the patient’s spine while performing hands-on manipulation to move vertebrae and facet joints into their correct position. All movements are slow and repetitive to deliver effective relief without causing discomfort.

Cox flexion-distraction is a helpful chiropractic technique for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Slipped discs
  • Ruptured discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Facet syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Lower back pain

How the Cox Technique Relieves Pain

The Cox technique utilizes flexion-distraction and decompression to restore alignment to the lumbar spine, helping to move vertebrae back into place, increase the disc height between vertebrae, and reduce pressure on the spinal column. In doing so, there is reduced pressure on spinal nerves, improved communication between nerves, and increased circulation. This not only relieves your pain but also improves your posture and range of motion, enabling you to get back to your favorite activities, whether that’s playing golf with your colleagues, enjoying a brisk walk in nice weather, or chasing the kids around the playground.
