Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Plymouth Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful results yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, gradually and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Plymouth chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the odds of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification ideas, and the knowledge that Plymouth chiropractic care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology is effective.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published papers indicates that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients enduring pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally stresses that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology! Plymouth spinal stenosis patients get relief with our Plymouth chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Plymouth sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week consisting of manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Plymouth spinal stenosis patients. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology treats the whole person, not only the pain.
