Spengel Chiropractic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in McHenry for Back Pain Relief

At Spengel Chiropractic, our McHenry chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is renowned, well-studied and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in McHenry! In this article, you will see studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation attain at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes are superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols seek at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is reduced 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.” Spengel Chiropractic must comment that medicine now considers 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to offer. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Spengel Chiropractic finds that many of our patients get even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own unique issues, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for McHenry back pain sufferers who really want to get back to an agreeable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for certain patients and when it is applied to the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can provide a distractive force and that patients exhibited an instant response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share 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 returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Spengel Chiropractic offers 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 revealed that disc heights significantly increased in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does this happen? They explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to draw the displaced disc content back to the center and got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce 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! Spengel Chiropractic talks about these biomechanical effects with our McHenry back pain patients all the time. It is vital 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 a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about 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 are so grateful he did.
