What's With Cox Technic? Why Do I Need to Use It In Practice?

February 8, 2012 04:19 by juliecoxcid

A logical question for any doctor to ask who is looking to incorporate a new protocol into his or her clinical practice. In fact, it should be asked of anything new. Where's the research? Where's the evidence? Where's the support? Cox Technic for spinal pain relief (back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, disc related and non-disc related) invites such inquiry.

Cox Technic under its developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has come far in its nearly 50 years to gather the answers and has very talented researchers (chiropractic and medical and biomechanist PhDs from Hines VA, Loyola Stritch School of Medicine, Palmer Research, Univ of Iowa and others), instructors and physicians taking it forward. Comments from the physicians, the back pain specialists, who use and have taken training courses in Cox Technic best answer the posed question of "What's With Cox Technic?" Here are a few:

  • "I must say, I am so glad I made this transition to using the Cox technique.  In only a few months I don't know how I would practice without it anymore.  I have already had patients that I have treated for YEARS with typical diversified technique that just accepted that they were never going to get relief from their lower back pain and with only a couple of treatments with the Cox protocol they are seeing significant improvements.  With other cases where you have a rather large patient, doing a side posture adjustment was impossible.  Using an Activator or similar adjusting tool was a joke and Thompson drops were minimally valuable.  With my new Cox 8 table, it is so easy to counter balance their weight and treat their lower back joints and disc injuries with absolute ease.  I no longer have to cringe when I see them walk in the door.  On another note, now that I have the capability of doing cervical decompression techniques that has also opened up a whole new world of options.  I have a patient that has been diagnosed with something called IBM or Inclusion Body Myositis.  Personally, before him, I had never heard of it before.  It reminds you a lot of MS.  Anyway, this patient was quickly losing function of his arms.  I had worked with him over the past year using cold laser techniques which did help some.  His neurologist insisted that he go see a PT and undergo 6-8 weeks of rehab exercises.  Well, the patient came back after two visits of PT and said that they had dismissed him and said that there was nothing they could do for him.  About this time I got my Cox table and just for the hell of it I decided to add the cervical Cox protocol to his treatment plan.  I must tell you to my absolute amazement, we have made more progress in a hand full of visits then we had made all last year.  I still use the laser techniques, but combined with the Cox it has been amazing.  The strength that is returning in his arms was totally unexpected.  I often joke with him and remind him that "there is nothing that can be done to help him"!  I know I have a lot to learn yet, but I truly appreciate all the work your father has put into this technique.  Since I've been out of school, which has been about 17 years now, this is the first thing that I can honestly say has made me feel proud to be a chiropractor.  I wish I had met your father [[Dr. Cox]] sooner!" Dr. C.J. Valenti (email  1/27/12 certified at Part II in 11/11)
  • "The research strongly supports the technique and the data/material are convincing/comprehensive for the public and healthcare providers of other disciplines." - Part I, San Francisco, 1/12
  • "Leander 'pumping the well' is not Cox [Technic]." - Part I, San Francisco, 1/12
  •  "Dr. Cox has connected the dots." He has taken a lot of research from different fields of practice and organized them for us practitioners. The information and data from all the studies were well organized and just opened my eyes. I could immediately identify many patients I treat. By the way, that quote was my patient's! and (2) Dr. Cox has built a very impressive research foundation where the researchers sought him and his technique. He piqued their curiosity based on his work and not marketing." - Part I, San Francisco, 1/12

Cox Technic is more than just a technique. It's a SYSTEM of understanding the biomechanics thoroughly enough to examine and diagnose a patient's condition and set the proper treatment plan for pain relief. Cox Technic pulls it all together, and Cox Seminars are the best places to learn more.

Certified Doctors Invited to Present Cases at Part III Courses

January 18, 2012 23:20 by juliecoxcid

Calling all certified Cox Technic physicians! Consider presenting a case at Part III Cox Seminar when you come. It doesn't take that much to prepare a 10 minutes case. Snap a picture here and there of the xrays or MRIs with your digital camera, even the patient's spine if it's of interest. Share the history, examination and diagnosis. Describe your flexion distraction treatment and its clinical outcomes. It's fun! These cases are the most exciting part of the Part III weekends anymore!

Join Dr. Cox and Dr. Gudavalli (at most of them) and share your clinical experiences. Dr. Cox will give you all the latest spinal research publications that impact your practice and share a few cases of his own. But everyone knows he has cases. This is your chance to share your clinical cases.

Let Julie know if you are willing to do this. Send your powerpoint to her 3 weeks prior so she can make notes. Then just be ready to share at a Cox® chiropractic continuing education seminar!

Dates and registration are online. Contact Julie at juliecoxcid@coxtechnic.com if you have any questions!

Oh - 12 hours of CE credits are arranged with our co-sponsor, National University of Health Sciences PLUS you get recertification credit!

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.”

– Boston Part I (7/11) attendee comment on evaluation form

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!

Chiropractic and Back Pain

May 9, 2011 11:34 by juliecoxcid

Chiropractic and Back Pain. Chiropractic and Neck Pain. Chiropractic and Spine Pain. The public thinks of chiropractic for back pain by and large.

  • 33% of 27,810 people chose chiropractors as their treating physician for low back pain in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. (NHANE) [in Deyo R: Spine 12(3)]
  • Spine care delivery is 60% by the medical model and 40% by the chiropractic model. [Saal, Spine 22(14)]
  • The total number of US adults who went to a chiropractor increased 57% from 2000-2003. [Davis, Health Svcs Research 45(3)]
  • Paid costs for back pain care started with a chiropractor were 40% less than care started with a MD. [Liliedahl, JMPT 33(9)]

Chiropractic is reknown for its back pain care. Chiropractic has evidence-based technique to relieve and control back pain like Cox Technic.

The federally funded studies document Cox Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression's biomechanical effects on the spine as well as its clinical outcomes:

  • intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192mm Hg in the lumbar spine
  • 28% widening of the area of the intervertebral canal
  • flexion distraction is superior in relieving pain due to radiculopathy (leg pain) compared to medical care. (Gudavalli, Euro Sp J 2006
  • 29 days and  12 visits are the averages for relief of low back pain when not taking into account specific conditions of back pain. [Cox, Topics in Clinical Chiropractic 1996, 3(3)]
  • 13.2 treatments is the average for relief of neck pain radiculopathy. [Schliesser, Kruse, JMPT 26(9)]

Back pain and chiropractic fit together. The chiropractic physician is skilled in the diagnosis, examination and treatment of back pain as well as its prevention with nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices. The chiropractic back pain research continues to evolve in support. Chiropractic physicians train specially to keep abreast of the latest research and Cox Technic treatment application in seminars. Back pain patients find Cox Technic physicians for their back pain relief when they search the referral directory of certified Cox Technic physicians.

Research leads the way in evidence-based care and in Cox Technic.

Contact Cox Technic if you have any questions.
