Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Baton Rouge for Back Pain Relief

May 14, 2019

At Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers, our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, renowned, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Baton Rouge! In this article, you will read studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it relieves back pain.


A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain reports that 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 think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers must comment that medicine now considers 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare 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 marvelous! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers finds that many of our patients get 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 Baton Rouge back pain sufferers who really want to get back to a pleasing quality of life.


Traction is effective treatment…for certain patients and when it’s 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 immediate response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share 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 increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers proposes that Cox® Technic is well-researched, segment specific spinal manipulation with predictable clinical outcomes.


And in Korea, researchers revealed that disc heights significantly increased 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 displaced 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! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers shares these biomechanical effects with our Baton Rouge 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 managed 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, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We are so thankful he did.
