Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Toronto for Back Pain Relief

At Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, our Toronto chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, renowned, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in Toronto! In this article, you’ll read studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it relieves back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A recent research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain reports that patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is decreased by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you say “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre must comment that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to offer. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive concerns, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Toronto back pain sufferers who really want to return to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for certain patients and when it’s applied to the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients exhibited an immediate response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers that Cox® Technic is well-researched, segment specific spinal manipulation with predictable clinical outcomes.

KOREA: COX® TECHNIC POSITIVELY IMPACTS THE SPINE

And in Korea, researchers discovered that disc heights significantly increased in chronic low back pain patients handled with flexion distraction and joint mobilization techniques. Why did this happen? They explained that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to pull the displaced disc content back to the center and removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al found in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre shares these biomechanical effects with our Toronto back pain patients daily. It is important to have science behind what we do.

Listen to this PODCAST with Ram Gudavalli, PhD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has directed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, adds to the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved here from India! We are so grateful he did.
