Johnson Chiropractic Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Richmond Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably know spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis causes back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all! No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, gradually and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Richmond chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the odds of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration ideas, and the knowledge that Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic can help.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Johnson Chiropractic! Richmond spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our Richmond chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Richmond sufferers. Researchers discovered that twice a week treatment including manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Johnson Chiropractic offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Richmond spinal stenosis patients. Johnson Chiropractic treats the whole person, not only the pain.
