Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in West Des Moines for Back Pain Relief

At Executive Chiropractic of Iowa, our West Des Moines chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, known, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in West Des Moines! In this article, you’ll read studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it relieves back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain reports that patients treated 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 look for 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 feel “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Executive Chiropractic of Iowa must share that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to perform. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a practice to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is remarkable! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa finds that many of our patients attain even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive issues, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for West Des Moines back pain sufferers who really want to get back to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some 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 deliver a distractive force and that patients showed an immediate response to it. They also admitted that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can show researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies documented 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa proposes 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 handled with flexion distraction and joint mobilization techniques. How does this happen? They explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the displaced disc content back to the center and got rid of 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! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa talks about these biomechanical effects with our West Des Moines back pain patients all the time. It’s vital 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 much 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’re so grateful he did.
