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

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its hurting effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Fort Wayne chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the odds of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification tips, and the experience that Fort Wayne chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is effective.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published reports indicates that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally stresses that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc! Fort Wayne spinal stenosis patients get relief with our Fort Wayne chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Fort Wayne sufferers. Researchers found that twice a week treatment including 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 resulted in 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 just the pain.
