Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Auburn for Back Pain Relief

At Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C., our Auburn chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is known, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in Auburn! In this piece, you’ll read papers 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 reports that patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get 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 feel “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. must comment that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to offer. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients vary and have their own unique issues, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Auburn back pain sufferers who really want to return to a reasonable 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 admitted that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can display researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 discovered that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients treated with flexion distraction and joint mobilization techniques. How does this happen? They described that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the moved disc content back to the center and removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al found in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. shares these biomechanical effects with our Auburn back pain patients daily. 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 headed much of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We’re so glad he did.
