Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Plymouth for Back Pain Relief

At Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology, our Plymouth chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is recognized, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Plymouth! In this piece, you’ll read 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 reports that patients treated with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for 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 think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology must remind you that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to do. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology finds that many of our patients get even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive issues, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Plymouth back pain sufferers who just 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 showed an immediate response to it. They also admitted that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can show researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area increases by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 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 removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce 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! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology talks about these biomechanical effects with our Plymouth back pain patients all the time. It’s key 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 directed much of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about 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 are so thankful he did.
