Johnson Chiropractic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Richmond for Back Pain Relief

At Johnson Chiropractic, our Richmond chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, recognized, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Richmond! In this piece, you’ll see studies 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 treated with flexion distraction spinal manipulation reach 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 decreased by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you say “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Johnson Chiropractic must comment that medicine now considers 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to do. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a practice to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! Johnson Chiropractic finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Richmond back pain sufferers who really want to return to an agreeable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it is applied to 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 showed an immediate 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 present researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies documented that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Johnson Chiropractic 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 enlarged in chronic low back pain patients handled with flexion distraction and joint mobilization techniques. Why did this happen? They described that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to draw the displaced disc content back to the center and removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al discovered in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Johnson Chiropractic talks about these biomechanical effects with our Richmond back pain patients daily. It is 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 led much 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’re so grateful he did.
