Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Fort Wayne Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

August 07, 2018

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know spinal stenosis. You have felt its hurting effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all! No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Fort Wayne 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 knowledge that Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is effective.


One of the original 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 showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published reports points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc! Fort Wayne spinal stenosis patients obtain relief with our Fort Wayne chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Fort Wayne sufferers. Researchers found that twice a week treatment consisting of 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 along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Fort Wayne spinal stenosis patients. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats the whole person, not only the pain.
