Q&A: McKenzie is very popular right now, even for disc issues and sciatica. How does Dr. Cox feel about this, and how would Dr. Cox address this with a patient who has been doing McKenzie?

On behalf of Cox® Technic and its mechanisms of relief, our professional study and documentation has be focused on this. I encourage you to ask them about their research for disc issues and sciatica. As far as how I would address this with a patient, I would share the European Spine Journal article on outcomes for radiculopathy (See table 9.) in the federally funded research study (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and National University of Health Sciences) where flexion distraction care relief exceeded active exercise outcomes by 250% (VAS drops: 26.47 FD vs 10.91 ATEP).
