How Baton Rouge Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

January 17, 2023

If you’ve experienced a Baton Rouge motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Fortunately, the Baton Rouge chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers can help ease your pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after a car accident.


A recent analysis of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings brought to light a wide range of ratings after an accident - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% [-|to]9] 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to call for a global way of assessing medical impairment after accidents to decrease psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and the community. (1) In developing guidelines to manage traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wished to partner with their healthcare team, desired a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and appreciated uncomplicated explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who were concerned about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers encourages you to be optimistic!


With our use of gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Baton Rouge patients have reason to be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to lower inflammation and reduce back pain. It is commonly used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatic leg pain, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and lower pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to put pressure to specific points along the spine in order to achieve maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries associated with car accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be quite painful if not treated well.
