Cox® Technic Seminars
present the
of chiropractic protocols to elevate your clinical outcomes.


 "I have had the opportunity to take 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, chiropractor in PA
