Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Toronto Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis causes 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, slowly and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Toronto chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the odds of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification ideas, and the experience that Toronto chiropractic care at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 valuable 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 newest published papers indicates that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially useful 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 is true at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre! Toronto spinal stenosis patients obtain reprieve with our Toronto chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Toronto sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week 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 as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Toronto spinal stenosis patients. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treats the whole person, not just the pain.
