This is a gentle, non-force adjusting approach. The thing that most patients notice first is our special table. The movements of this table help traction the spine, opening up compressed spinal discs and reducing pressure on facet joints of the spine.
Named after its developer, Dr. James Cox, this highly-effective technique combines osteopathic principles with the specific, highly-directed approach used in chiropractic. The combination offers a conservative resolution of low back and leg pain that often averts the need for surgery.
The Cox Flexion-Distraction technique we use gives us the ability to place spinal joints in a more normal motion and position without pain or aggravating your condition.
By lying on the table, neutralizing the effects of gravity, we’re able to gently separate spinal joints and move them through a more normal range of motion. Patients find this surprisingly pleasant. We find it powerfully effective.
Patient Testimonial: Flexion Distraction Therapy/Cox Technique
"When I came to Med Plus Neck and Back Pain Center, in Rockford IL for treatment I was anything but optimistic.
With little results from the medical profession and my prior chiropractic care, I was scheduled for an epidural shot at the local pain clinic. I was immediately impressed with the facility and staff. Everyone seemed so friendly and I loved the level of organization and personal care. I must say that the patient care I have received at Med Plus Neck and Back Pain Center has been second to none.
Because of my bulging disc in the back Ineeded some form of distraction to relieve thepressure causing my pain. At Med Plus Neck and Back Pain Center my doctor used a distraction therapy table called Cox Technique. This was so superior to the treatment I received with other methods of disc decompression. The major difference is that the treatment is administered by the doctor treating me rather than a computer programmed machine. Today I am pain free because of the superior care given me at Med Plus Neck and Back Pain Center."
