READY TO SEE YOUR SPINE MOVE?! Exciting Possibility!

Ever wondered what your spine looks like under your chiropractor’s hand? Exciting studies – at least to your Fort Wayne chiropractor! - are in progress and leaning in that direction! A recent study was just published that documented the reliability of ultrasound measurement of spinous process separation - the change in distance between the spinous processes as they open - during Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation. (1) Cox® Technic is a particular treatment protocol that specific segment activity can be provoked. Say, for a patient experiencing pain due to an L5-S1 disc herniation, biomechanical studies have shown that Cox® Technic widens the area of the spine’s intervertebral foramen by 28% allotting a herniated disc room to not physically aggravate a spinal nerve. Movement of the spinal vertebrae (mean) in flexion was 3.68° with 0.80 mm separation. (2,3) Very nice! Chiropractic care at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc helps ease back pain and leg pain so our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients can return to living their lives! One day, technology may even permit us, you and your chiropractor, to see the changes in real time. Quite exciting!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. James Cox, developer of Cox® Technic protocols, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about the recorded benefits of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
