Spine & Sports Rehab Center Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Baton Rouge for Back Pain Relief

At Spine & Sports Rehab Center, our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is known, researched and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Baton Rouge ! In this article, you will see studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it relieves back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients treated 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 decreased 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.” Spine & Sports Rehab Center must comment that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to perform. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 unique issues, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Baton Rouge 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 some and when it’s used with the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients exhibited an immediate response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (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 returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 revealed that disc heights significantly increased in chronic low back pain patients treated with flexion distraction and joint mobilization techniques. Why did this happen? They described 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 discovered in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Spine & Sports Rehab Center shares these biomechanical effects with our Baton Rouge back pain patients all the time. It’s important 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 led a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, adds to the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We’re so grateful he did.
