Forces Applied

Researchers work for ways to measure everything. That's science! 
 
The Cox Technic community is so grateful for all their work. Here are the articles related to those forces measured.
 
CERVICAL SPINE
 
LUMBAR SPINE

ABSTRACTS OF ACC-RAC CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS 2016 - (2016) Poster presentation abstracts. Journal of Chiropractic Education: March 2016, Vol. 30, No. 1, pp. 69-80.
    • „The forces delivered by a chiropractor during manual and automated long y axis Cox® distraction, lateral flexion and circumduction) to 12 patients were studied from preload to maximum axial load delivered.
    • „Peak axial load in manual distraction was 73.7N and with automated long y axis were 136.0N
    • „Clinical note: training is necessary to discern and apply proper force during Cox long y axis automated and manual flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation.
    • „„Note: Circumduction forces are higher. We teach circumduction is a strong force and elicited in good triple joint health.
