a discussion place for spinal pain management with Cox® Technic

"I heard Dr. Cox 30 years ago..."

November 18, 2014 15:07 by juliecoxcid

Dr. James Cox had the privilege to present to the 700+ attendees at the ANJC Fall Summit in East Brunswick NJ this past weekend. As he always does, he passionately shares his love of chiropractic and of the research and science behind its art of healing and pain relief. He loves to share his clinical experience over teh past 51 years. At the ANJC, I heard more doctors come up to me and say "I heard your dad / Dr. Cox speak 30 years ago!" While that is awesome, I am so glad they came to hear him again!!! His passion for chiropractic and its science and its art is amazing, and the stories that come after this conversation starter are always interesting. Those are for another blog post...

I have worked with Dad (Dr. Cox) for 22 years. In 22 years, so much has changed and evolved. I was hired to write a newsletter for him and the technique. Today, I get to talk to doctors from around the globe who share their personal patient success stories (which I wish I could get them all to write for me to share with all of you!) and plan training seminars and support our teaching team and coordinate clinicians who want to do research with researchers and connect patients (who are often at the end of their ropes) who need back pain and neck pain relief with Cox Technic certified physicians who can deliver that relief. 

Further, during these 22 years, I have likely sat in over 400 presentations with Dr. Cox and/or other members of our instruction team (Drs. Greenwood, Hazen, Joachim, Kruse, Olding et al). I learn something new at every single course. I hear a new insight or application of a protocol. I hear a new struggle or a new success. I have been on the scene when Dr. Gudavalli has announced reception of a new grant from NIH or HRSA or FCER (when it was in operation) or that a paper about flexion distraction (teaching tools or biomechanical research outcomes or clinical comparison study) is accepted for publication or that he is invited to present flexion distraction to fellow biomechanical engineers and/or chiropractors at conferences in places like Sydney, Dubai, Portugal, California, etc. I am able to watch new doctors to the technique grow in excitement and passion during the course of a seminar. I am honored to hear their stories throughout the course, their personal struggles with back pain and neck pain or those of a loved one, their professional uncertainty as to whether to keep practicing or retire, their journey for finding a better way to help their patients.

What a privilege it's been to be a part of all this excitement that often goes on behind the scenes yet is only known by a few. So thank you to everyone who gives Dr. Cox a second chance - even if it's 30 years later - to share his passion for chiropractic, its science and its art, its research and its clinical application. And I am so glad that you get that chance as he is my dad, and I am so honored to still have him in my life these 30 years, 40 years, almost (!) 50 years. 

I look forward to seeing you at a seminar or lunchtime LIVE webinar or hands-on workshop and hearing your story of hearing Dad teach you 30 years ago (or 2 years ago or 2 months ago!). I am confident you will hear something new to inspire you and your enthusiasm for your chiropractic practice and profession!

Evidence-Based Protocol for Back Pain and Neck Pain Relief

September 26, 2011 10:51 by juliecoxcid

Healthcare costs and healthcare demands are all the talk today. Families struggle with healthcare decisions. Politicians and insurance companies are changing the system. Doctors are changing their office protocols to meet the new guidelines. It's hard to keep up for everyone. But for your health, you know that evidence-based protocols are those that you want for your loved ones when they hurt.

Evidence-based protocols come from documentation by clinicians and researchers seeking an answer to help sufferers. When it comes to back pain and lower back pain and neck pain sufferers, Cox Technic strives to provide the evidence-based protocols to make a difference in your lives. Researchers from prestigious universities and research centers (click here to see some of the federally funded projects and who is involved) work together to document the biomechanical (answering the question: what happens during Cox Technic?) and clinical (answering the question: how long does it take to get relief?) of Cox Technic.

Systematically, researchers and clinicians work to define the evidence-based protocols that will relieve back pain and neck pain without surgery or drugs when possible. When a doctor implements evidence-based protocols in his or her clinical practice, patients can feel a bit more assured that there is a level of science and understanding behind those protocols and find reasonable relief of pain. All persons involved know what to expect and what to do when those expectations are not met.

Evidence-based medicine and clinical protocols are the present and the future of healthcare. If something works, it will likely be used and paid for. If it doesn't, it likely won't.

If you suffer with back pain or related extremity pain or neck pain, contact a Cox Technic certified physician to discuss your condition and expectation of relief. Cox Technic treatment protocols are safe and gentle.

If you are physician seeking to implement an evidence-based protocol in your spine pain practice, contact us for information on educational opportunities and training seminars, research, and publications about the evidence-based protocols of Cox Technic.

Cox® Technic Seminars Teach Flexion-Distraction Protocols

March 19, 2010 09:47 by juliecoxcid

Cox® Seminars teach the biomechanics, examination, diagnosis and treatment of spinal pain conditions. Treatment is focused on Cox® flexion-distraction and decompression protocols performed by chiropractic physicians who use their hands and their palpatory skills to adjust the spine. Cox® Seminars emphasize the role of the chiropractic physician and his/her trained hands in caring for spinal pain conditions.

60% of chiropractors reported to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners that they use Cox® Technic.

Chiropractic research projects funded by various organizations from NIH to HRSA to FCER continue to investigate chiropractic flexion distraction. Projects are underway at Palmer Research Center (Gudavalli et al), National University of Health Sciences (Gudavalli & Cambron), New York College of Chiropractic (Dougherty) among others. These projects' goals and outcomes as available are shared.

Cox® Seminars teach the proper application of flexion-distraction protocols. Attending doctors are often taken aback at the low amount of force and at the depth of flexion that is actually required (only 1 to 2 degrees when the protocol is applied correctly). There is nothing like hands-on experience training to really grasp what a technique is all about.
