Part II


Part II Cox® Certification Course - How Is Cox® Technic Applied and Integrated into a Clinical Practice 


This energetic weekend course builds on the foundation started in Part I. The biomechanical and anatomical influences on spinal pain are reviewed. The clinical examination is re-emphasized as its importance in the care and ultimate clinical outcome of spinal pain patients is paramount. The treatment plan is demonstrated in videotaped clinical cases. The treatment protocol from tolerance testing to administration based on the research-documented and published algorithms is demonstrated, practiced, finetuned during the objective pressure-transducer session for each attendee, and graded during the practical exam. Tips for educating patients in home care and pain prevention as well as principled ways to spread the word about your gentle, evidence-based care are included.

The conditions focused on in Part II are discogenic-related like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy and the like with presentations on treating post-surgical continued pain patient,  pregnancy-related back and/or leg pain, thoracic disc herniations and more.

Hands-on protocols for lumbar spine are practiced in small groups. Protocol I and II and side-lying techniques are shared.

Part I introduced the academics of Cox® Technic more for the non-discogenic spinal pain conditions as well as the hands-on protocols. Part II makes sure that the hands-on application is proper with hands-on training emphasis. Small groups lead by experienced, certified-in-Cox®-Technic chiropractic instructors focus on the application of the protocols. The certification examination is offered optionally. 

Part II continues the presentation of The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management as it focuses on discogenic low back pain at Part II. Cox® Technic is a system of spinal pain management. The technique doesn’t stand alone in the relief of spine pain, but rather is a central component. The patient, home care, Cox® Technic, exercise, examination, doctor skill are all part of the system whose goal is pain relief. The didactic discussion of spine pain conditions highlights disc-related conditions and spinal stenosis. Part II small group hands-on sessions ensure proper protocol application. Attendees practice with the force-measuring Cox®8 Force Table by Haven Medical that provides real-time feedback regarding the pressure being applied to the spine throughout the delivery of Cox® Technic protocols. This translates the biomechanics research findings of Gudavalli et al into clinical, practical application for patient back pain and leg pain relief. It's evidence-based practice care at its best highlighting the nearly 55+ years of effort to document chiropractic care outcomes fostered by Cox® Technic's developer, Dr. James Cox. The first federally funded study by the US government for chiropractic research when Dr. Ram Gudavalli joined Dr. Cox, the research abilities really started to be interdisciplinary and more complex. You will see and experience how. This course is a mix of the research and clinical application for attendee implementation into current practice. The lumbar certification examination is offered optionally.

Special COMBINED PARTS I/II 4 Days' Course:  In the combined Parts I/II 4 days course (30 CE hours), you will immerse yourself in Cox® Technic and the non-surgical system of back pain care that all started in Fort Wayne. Dr. James Cox, developer of Cox® Technic, and Drs. George Joachim, Kurt Olding will guide you through Parts I and II material, hands-on training, the examination, the research, and the patient tips to elevate your clinical outcomes.  In West Palm Beach, FL, Dr. Ralph Kruse along with Drs. Lee Hazen, Dean Greenwood, George Joachim and/or Kurt Olding will do the same

"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." Warmly, Mark  [Dr. Mark B. Frank (email correspondence]

"I had a great experience at the course this weekend and feel that the time and money I spent for the course well worth it. 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

"First seminar that I paid attention to the whole time! Took notes and was excited for the day. 200%!!!"
