Cox® Distraction Manipulation Effective for Stenosis Pain Relief

March 10, 2010 00:49 by juliecoxcid
Murphy, Hurwitz, Gregory, and Clary report on a study of a non-surgical approach to lumbar spinal stenosis management that includes distraction manipulation, neural mobilization and exercise. (in BMC MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS 2006; 7:NIL_1-NIL_8) This report reveals that distraction manipulation improved lumbar spine stenosis patients by 76% and disability improved in 73%. The patients were treated an average of 13.3 times. Murphy et al present this paper as a starting point for more studies on stenosis. They report encouragement that such a combination as this for stenosis is positive.

The goal of Cox® Technic is to open the canal space that is narrowed in spinal stenosis. Stenosis sufferers appreciate the relief.
