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
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 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 valuable
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’s 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.
