How Toronto Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a Toronto motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant spine-related pain in the neck or back. Fortunately, the Toronto chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can help ease your auto accident pain. Let’s explore how this form of treatment can help back and/or neck pain sufferers after a motor vehicle accident.


A recent analysis of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings brought to light a wide range of ratings after an accident - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% to 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for permanent injury status. This led the authors to suggest the development of a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to decrease psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In creating guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel pointed out that injured persons wanted to partner with their healthcare team, wanted a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and valued simple explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages you to be optimistic and invites you to be a part of the team for healing!!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Toronto patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is an advanced form of chiropractic care that works to decrease inflammation and alleviate back pain. It is often used in cases of herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to manipulate the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and reduce pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to apply pressure to specific points on the spine in order to achieve maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries related to motor vehicle accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be quite painful if not treated well.
