Cox Technic Seminar Gives a System
"I couldn't put my finger on exactly what really got me about the course until I discussed it with a patient who does research in    human kinetics at the university here in town. What really impressed me were 3 things:
  1. "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!
  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.
  3. [[The presentations]] kept my attention the whole time. No flash or arrogance. It was a feast of valid and useful information from the beginning to the end. 

"I am still riding the high from the seminar and still reading the textbook.

"On my return flight I happened to be sitting next to a pediatrician from Denver who was also interested in the material. She pointed out that the research was being funded by the NIH and was very impressed that it was centered on  the Cox technique.  She took the website info because a colleague of hers that had neck surgery was seeing a DC but not getting results."
- San Francisco, Part I attendee, (Kruse), 1/12
“The hands on [made the weekend for me]. The doctors [who lead the hands-on sessions – Drs. Joachim, Kruse and Olding] that have the same Love of the profession as Dr. Cox [made the weekend for me]. The science to back up the protocol and technique [made the weekend for me]. It was all excellent.  I am so grateful for the hands on and practice on the computer of force used.”  – Dr. Pirner (April 2015, Parts I/II) 

Cox® Technic with Cox® Table with Cox® Seminar 
"Thanks Julie.  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 [other techniques for me] 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 sooner!

You just know that Dr. Cox absolutely loves what he does and wants Doctors of Chiropractic to properly utilize his life’s work for the betterment of humanity!" - Daniel D Spencer DC, CCSP (Parts I/II, April 2015)

"[Part II] was another great weekend that flew by, just like Boston. I can't honestly remember any other seminar experience of which I can say that.
On a personal note, like [Dr. Cox], I was also a valedictorian of my class at National. Unlike him, though, I don't feel like I embraced the fact that this was just the beginning of my learning. Don't get me wrong, I kept up, but I contented myself to employ what I knew, and this was enough to help many people. But taking the Cox® courses over this year has really revived my enthusiasm for the profession and the practice, and opened me up to the power of what we can do. Having the EVIDENCE and the PROTOCOL for back and neck pain has made a huge difference for me. And his enthusiasm is infectious. Twenty years in, and I feel invigorated and excited about the next twenty. I can't thank him enough."
~ Dr. Keith Olding, Part II attendee, November 2011
"I had a great experience at the [Cox® Technic Part II] course this weekend and feel that the time and money I spent for the course and for Dr. Kruse’s [hands-on] workshop was well worthwhile. Dr. Cox’s energy is amazing and his passion for chiropractic is contagious.  I am back at the office today explaining to the medical residents shadowing me what it is I am doing when performing Cox® Technique, confident with the training I have received this weekend that I will give a clear understanding of how and why we treat back and neck problems.  Those who have seen me perform treatment are impressed with the gentleness of the approach and immediate positive patient response.  Thanks again to Dr. Cox for his tireless effort in making this a reality for the profession."
~ George Simmons, DC, APC

You get the latest research presented in concise form, as well as individual hands-on with the technique that is invaluable. When’s the last time a seminar day flew by? Good stuff.”
~ Dr. Keith Olding, Boston Part I (7/11) attendee comment on evaluation form
I am a Cox® certified doctor who has had the new [Cox7] table for over 4 years. I was amazed at how much I learned on improving my technique. If you have not returned to Cox® Seminars in a while, you will be impressed by how much you will learn in areas you thought you had mastered. As you all know Dr. Jim does not sit still, and the research is constantly getting better and better.
~ Orlando Part I (3/11 Joachim) attendee for re-certification

I would encourage a colleague to certify in Cox® Technic because Cox® Technic allows "efficiency and overall 'full spine' treatment with doctor 'ease'. I've been practicing for 20 years and need to work 'smarter' not harder!!
~ Orlando Part I attendee for re-certification, 3/11 (Joachim)
The information is well backed by research and hands-on practice.
~ Orlando Part I Cox Seminar attendee, 3/11 (Joachim)
The "speaker [Dr. George Joachim] was very knowledgeable! I learned more with him these few days than I have within the last 3 months. Thank you!"
Also, I would tell my colleagues "that within 1 weekend I learned how to treat antalgic patients so that they [might] see results within 12 visits / 29 days [average per 1000 cases study]! I would urge all students to get certified not only for their personal knowledge but for their patients!"
~ Orlando Part I attendee who is finishing chiropractic school, 3/11 (Joachim)
Thanks for great weekend - always leave with take home tips for Monday morning and feel like I get great information for clinical practice.
~ Orlando attendee, 3/11, Part I (Joachim)

Cox® Technic is highly researched, patient friendly, effective on difficult conditions.

Thank you. Every time I come to Cox® Seminars, I leave feeling reassured that what I do is very, very important.
- Dr. Seery (Cox® Seminar, 2/11)
Great results. More referrals via word of mouth. Doctor feels more confidence in treating safely , effectively, and with less physical effort.
- attendee (Cox® Seminar 1/11)
Well his [Dr. Cox's] excitement definitely rubbed off on me. I've never heard Dr. Cox speak before but always heard he [Dr. Cox] was very good, but that's a definite understatement. I love the knowledge and passion he has for our profession. I would've signed up on my laptop [for the certification course] during the seminar but I had to check [on my schedule] :). I look forward to seeing you soon!
- Aaron Popp DC (attendee at Indiana State Chiropractic Association convention, March 2010)
Awesome seminar - backed up nicely with the latest research. Fantastic information for every practitioner!
The info is second to none.
- J DeJesus DC
I wanted to thank you for extremely exciting and informative weekend in Boston.
I can say without hesitation that this is the most enthusiastic I have felt following a conference for as long as I can remember.
The knowledge obtained in 18 hours alone was more useful and applicable than most of what was learned in school.  Dr. Cox's clinical expertise and love of research is infectious.
- Stephen R. Pedro, DC, Hartford, CT  
Hi Julie,
I wanted to send you a couple of notes of feedback on the seminar [November 2008, Part II].
I found the seminar to be a perfect blend of intellectual knowledge and hands on practical information. Before part 2, I was getting fairly good results with the instrument and wondered if it was really worth going to part 2. You know, the technique does seem fairly simple.
Once there, Dr Gudavalli measured my force with his instrument and found I was using half the force suggested. I spent four different sessions with him trying to perfect this. Then Dr. Cox improved my cervical technique dramatically at one of the lunch hours. I have noticed impressive patient improvements in the week since the seminar...So looking forward to part 3 now.
- Dr. Mark B. Frank (email correspondence 11/16/08)
Dr. Cox is a no nonsense teacher.
His passion for healing inspires me to be more scientific with my clinical approach and communication.
- 2/08 workshop attendee (Hawaii with Dr. Cox)
I have had the opportunity to take several courses from Dr. Cox on the application of flexion-distraction as the primary intervention for the treatment of low back pain. His work is a credit to the chiropractic profession, and his seminars are a must for any practitioner who wants to practice the technique [flexion-distraction].
- Jack Dolbin, DC
Dear Dr. Cox,
Your recent multi-disciplinary conference at Lutheran hospital in Fort Wayne exceeded my expectations, which are always high for your seminars. This particular Part Three recertification seminar ranks as one of the most important and useful of my 26 year chiropractic career, mainly because of your ability to weave a "seamless garment" of clinical practice management based on reality rather than hypothesis testing or experimenting on each patient.
I use the term "seamless garment" because my confidence begins with the initial history and exam of the patient, continues through imaging, analysis and diagnosis and, most importantly, is fulfilled when the patient experiences the powerful simplicity and ease of correcting disabling problems on The Cox® table.
Thank you for your continued successful focus on "routinizing" these most difficult clinical cases. I look forward to future conferences and developments.
- David J. Grossi, D.C.   
I have been using your technique for some time now but the experience of the seminar has shed new light on my practice procedures. It was exciting Monday morning to implement these procedures and see the positive response of my patients. It is also comforting to have the confidence and security that my examination is thorough, my diagnosis is specific and correct, and my treatment is effective. I strongly feel that Cox® flexion distraction is the state of the art conservative treatment of low back pain and ... I feel that every D.C. should be utilizing it in their practices.
- D.P.V., chiropractic physician
Yours is the only seminar I have ever attended where so much was packed into so little time ... the most thorough and stimulating professional lecture that I have ever attended.  On Monday morning I believe that I tested more reflexes, muscles and dermatomes than I have in any 30 days previously in 10 years of practice. Thank you for reawakening my intellect and challenging my diagnostic acumen. My practice has already changed, and I'm excited about the future."
- J.D.L., chiropractic physician.

If you desire to be the best doctor you can be for your patients and yourself this (Cox® Technic) is a must.  Science based, unbelievable success rate.  NO BRAINER and GENTLE with basically no risk to patients. – Patrick Martello DC  (Part III, January 2015, Tampa)
