Cox Technic - It's not just for low back! It's for CERVICAL SPINE, too!

March 10, 2015 14:15 by juliecoxcid

DC 1: "Flexion distraction. Yeah, I do that. It works great for low back pain and disc herniations."

DC 2: "Have you used flexion distraction for neck pain and arm pain? Cervical spine conditions?"

DC 1: "No. I didn't know it was for that."

DC 2: "The research is amazing, and the technique is so gentle!

Yes, Cox Technic flexion distraction for cervical spine conditions was introduced in 1991 (thanks to Dr. Cox's wife whose C5-6 disc herniation made him venture beyond his beloved L5-S1!). Since then, clinical cases have been published, federally funded studies (both clinical comparison and biomechanical) have been completed, and colleagues have shared their treatment skills with each other formally in workshops and informally in clinics. The Cox Table has also evolved from unwieldy and awkward occipital cups/ropes to simpler long-y axis and straps.

Check out just what Cox Technic flexion distraction offers cervical spine pain patients and their neck pain and arm pain! Then register for a seminar or workshop to learn more.

Video of Cox Technic - It's For More than Just Low Back Pain!

February 16, 2015 21:03 by juliecoxcid

Dr. James Cox well developed Cox® Technic's reputation for managing low back pain and sciatica. Most everyone who uses it says they'd turn to flexion distraction to manage low back pain and leg pain and disc herniation. But the evolution of Cox Technic to caring for the other regions of the spine has grown! Flexion Distraction Cox® Technic for cervical spine disc herniations and disc degeneration and headache and arm pain is well researched biomechanically and clinically. Its research progresses with federal funding via NIH and HRSA chiropractic research grants at NUHS and Palmer Research with Loyola Stritch School of Medicine/Hines VA Hospital and others like University of Iowa and University of Illinois. It's so exciting!

Check out this video that just shows snippets of lumbar spine flexion distraction application (It will look so familiar!) as well as cervical spine treatment (on The Cox8 Table) and side-lying treatment for pregnant patients (so comfortable and effective!) as well as patients who are in too much pain to  lie on their stomaches. 

Cox Technic is most effective biomechanically and clinically for lumbar spine back pain conditions. Check out what it offers the cervical spine related neck and arm pain conditions, the "newest" application of Cox Technic since 1991. Check out this video.

"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!

Recertification in Cox Technic Flexion Distraction

June 6, 2014 15:38 by juliecoxcid

The referral directory of Cox Technic Flexion Distraction physicians has grown. But time passes too quickly, and certified Cox Technic doctors lose touch with us. Each seminar, though, brings new research and new excitement! The research is directly related to flexion distraction or interrelated to the care of the spine. 

So in this crazy-busy world we live, Cox Technic has arranged for some new options for re-certification:

 

  1. write a case report ("old")
  2. attend 12 hours of a Cox Seminar (Part I or II or III - NO TEST!) ("old")
  3. take and pass the quizzes for 12 ONLINE COURSES (some for CE; some not; some states take online CE; others don't, but we do for re-certification.)  (new!)
  4. take and pass the quizzes for 8 ONLINE COURSES plus attend a 4 HOURS HANDS-ON WORKSHOP  (new!
So don't become or stay "inactive"! Check out all the recertification options to make your education time productive and keep patients' outcomes high.

Dr. James Cox leads Part II of the weekend on discogenic conditions while Dr. George Joachim and Dr. Ralph Kruse lead the didactics of Part I on the non-discogenic conditions. Hands-on is lead by Drs. Kruse, Joachim and Olding so that everyone gets to practice and experience the technique as performed on the Cox8 Table by Haven Innovation. Dr. Ram Gudavalli, principal investigator of flexion distraction research projects, will also be on hand with the pressure transducer to give objective feedback of your application of Cox Technic protocols on The Cox8 Table. 

So consider The Cox8 Table for your practice.

Chiropractic Recorded Course: Cases & Treatment with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction

August 19, 2013 14:11 by juliecoxcid

Dr. James Cox presented a webinar that included cases from his clinical practice and demonstration of their treatment on The Cox8 Table by Haven Innovation:

 

  • degenerative scoliosis with osteoporosis
  • compression fracture care and options
  • disc herniation, spianl stenosis
  • disc extrusion

 

It's always a comfort for both the doctor and the back pain patient to see that other doctors and patients have successfully dealt with the same condition or combination of conditions successfully for relief of pain. Dr. Cox shares the history, examination findings, imaging, diagnosis, treatment and ancillary care (exercise, nutrition, belt, electrical stimulation, hot/cold therapy, etc.)

In a practical way, Dr. Cox shows that these cases come into the chiropractor's office seeking relief and can get it.

The recording is now available of this presentation of 4 cases. Click here to register. You will receive personal log-in instructions and codes to watch the recording on your own time, computer and pace.

Back to blogging..

August 16, 2013 09:11 by juliecoxcid

It's been over a year since I added anything to our Cox Technic blog. Time flies! Social media demands grow. Spinal research keeps coming. So here goes some sharing of spinal research that helps the back pain specialist who helps relieve back pain and neck pain in his or her patients. 

Depression slows patient recovery. That makes sense doesn't it? In this newly published article (Melloh M, Elfering A, Käser A, Salathé CR, Barz T, Aghayev E, Röder C, TheisJC. Depression impacts the course of recovery in patients with acute low-back pain. Behav Med. 2013;39(3):80-9. doi: 10.1080/08964289.2013.779566.), the researchers report that recovery is slower in depressive patients. Further, they report that depression is associated with low back pain especially after 6 weeks of pain. So take note of your patient's state of mind when you care for him or her. Co-manage it if necessary. Such extra care may well improve your low back pain clinical outcomes!
