Boston Cox Seminar A Success

July 27, 2011 10:52 by juliecoxcid

Twenty-two chiropractic doctors and students joined at the beautiful Hyatt Boston Harborside Hotel for a weekend of hands-on and academic experience. Lead by Dr. Ralph Kruse, the doctors from Norway to Illinois to Connecticut to Canada heard about the history of Cox Technic, saw videotaped cases of Dr. James Cox, the developer of Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression spinal manipulation, applying Cox Technic protocols from the spinal manipulation to ancillary therapies and exercise, gained insights into the biomechanics of flexion distraction based on federally funded HRSA grant studies and the clinical outcomes of flexion distraction, and felt how the proper application of Cox Technic should feel as both the doctor and patient. Always an amazing finding is how small the motion is to get the desired effect. One to 2 inches of motion from the treatment starting point is all it takes. There is no need or desire for 16° of flexion when applying flexion distraction properly. Further, dropping intradiscal pressures on the DRG is important. Pain is when there is more than 20mm of pressure on the DRG nerves according to Takahashi.

You get the latest research presented in concise form, as well as individual hands-on with the technique that is invaluable. When’s the last time a seminar day flew by? Good stuff.”

So consider joining the next Cox Technic Part I Certification Course in San Diego on September 9-10, 2011. You’ll be amazed at today’s 21st century, gentle, evidence-based, effective clinical protocols of Cox Technic that have evolved since you took it in school or heard about it from a colleague!
