Cox Flexion-Distraction (Cox Technique) is a chiropractic technique developed by Dr. James M. Cox, aimed at treating conditions of the spine, particularly the lumbar (lower) spine. It involves the use of a specially designed chiropractic table that allows controlled flexion, distraction, and lateral flexion of the spine. The technique is often referred to as Cox Technic, and it is a non-invasive approach intended to alleviate pain and improve spinal function.
Cox Flexion-Distraction is often utilized to address disc-related conditions, such as herniated discs or bulging discs. The controlled movements help reduce pressure on spinal discs and may alleviate associated symptoms like sciatica.
The gentle flexion and distraction movements aim to improve the mobility of spinal joints. This can be beneficial for individuals experiencing stiffness or reduced range of motion in the spine.
Cox Flexion-Distraction is known for its effectiveness in reducing pain associated with various spinal conditions. By decompressing the spine and reducing nerve impingement, it may alleviate symptoms such as back pain and radiating leg pain.
It can be part of a comprehensive treatment plan for spinal stenosis, a condition characterized by the narrowing of the spinal canal. The technique aims to create space within the spine, reducing pressure on nerves.
