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!"

  • "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.
