How does Cox Technic compare to decompression? Cox Technic is a hands-on, doctor-controlled spinal adjusting procedure that is segment specific in its application. If there is an L5S1 disc herniation, the L5S1 segment is addressed until the disc herniation pain is reduced, and the segment is able to move through its normal ranges of motion painfree. Its sessions are a few minutes in length, under doctor control at all times, and shown to reduce intervertebral disc pressures to as low as -192mm HG pressure, open the spinal canal space by 28%, and increase the disc height. The Cox Technic treatment plan is individualized by patient response, not by number of treatments or number of minutes. The Rule of 50% standardizes the care.« View All FAQs"This information and website content is not intended to diagnose, guarantee results, or recommend specific treatment or activity.
