Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Baton Rouge Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

August 07, 2018

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know 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 heals it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Baton Rouge chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to decrease the odds of future incidents, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the experience that Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers 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 decrease and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published reports indicates that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients enduring pain due to lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers! Baton Rouge spinal stenosis patients obtain reprieve with our Baton Rouge chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Baton Rouge sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week including 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 as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Baton Rouge spinal stenosis patients. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
