Only half of chiropractors are Cox Technique chiropractors.
What Is the Cox Technique?
The Cox Technique was developed by a chiropractor named Dr. James M. Cox as a gentler method of spinal decompression. Using a specially designed table, the chiropractor can use gravity and stretching to lengthen the space between spinal discs. The specially designed table has movable parts which allow the chiropractor to focus on specific areas for treatment. It supports the head and legs throughout the procedure to provide optimal benefit.
This support relieves pressure and pain and promotes healing. It improves circulation and helps improve the communication between nerves. It also realigns the joints which can restore flexibility for those who have been experiencing stiffness.
Who Can Benefit from the Cox Technique?
Many people can benefit from the use of this non-force adjustment technique. Those with back, neck, or leg pain are prime candidates. The Cox Technique has frequently helped patients avoid surgery. It is also used as a gentle pain relief method for those in rehabilitation.
