Cox® Technic for Neck and Arm Pain Radiculopathy

March 26, 2010 14:36 by juliecoxcid

Shoulder pain and arm pain and arm pain that may even go all the way to the hand and fingers can be frustrating. Sometimes people think that it's just from overexertion or an arm muscle pull. Sometimes, though, the pain may be the result of nerve compression in the cervical spine. A disc herniation ("slipped disc") could be the culprit. Stenosis could be the culprit. The physician can differentiate the cause and help with Cox® Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression Adjusting. 

In a retrospective study of 39 patients treated in one physician's office, Cox® Technic provided statistically significant relief of pain. The Visual Analog Scale ("On a scale of 1 to 10 with one be no pain and 10 being the worst pain, what is your pain today?") reports by the patients showed reduction in pain. The mean number of treatments was 13 (+/- 8 treatments). The treatment protocol was Cox® Technic and physical therapy modality (ex: ice or electrical stimulation or other). 

This study of cervical spine radiculopathy patients with pain down the arm below the elbow is a stepping stone to larger studies of its kind to document the relief attainable with Cox® Technic. Cox® Technic and its physicians and researchers strive to document the protocols, outcomes and biomechanics for the best clinical outcomes.
