How Richmond Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

January 17, 2023

If you’ve experienced a Richmond motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with serious back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Fortunately, the Richmond chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Johnson Chiropractic can help ease your pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after a car accident.


A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings documented a wide range of impairment after a MVA - 2% to 23% for car occupants and 2.8% [-|to]9] 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the biggest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to call for a global way of assessing medical impairment after MVAs to decrease psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and the community. (1) In creating guidelines to oversee the care of traffic injuries, an expert panel pointed out that injured persons wished to partner with their healthcare team, desired a clearer understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and valued simple explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) Johnson Chiropractic encourages you to be optimistic!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Richmond patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to reduce inflammation and alleviate back pain. It is often used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other forms of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and ease pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it delibers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor places his/her/hands on the spine to put pressure to certain points on the spine in order to attain maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries associated with motor vehicle accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated appropriately.
