Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Ashburn for Back Pain Relief

At Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn, our Ashburn chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is renowned, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Ashburn! In this article, you will see papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain reports that patients treated with flexion distraction spinal manipulation attain at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes are superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols seek at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is reduced by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn must remind you that medicine now looks at 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to offer. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients vary and have their own distinctive concerns, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Ashburn back pain sufferers who just want to return to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for certain patients and when it’s applied to the proper patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients exhibited an immediate response to it. They also acknowledged that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height gets bigger by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn offers that Cox® Technic is well-researched, segment specific spinal manipulation with predictable clinical outcomes.

KOREA: COX® TECHNIC POSITIVELY IMPACTS THE SPINE

And in Korea, researchers discovered that disc heights significantly increased in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does this happen? They described that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to draw the displaced disc content back to the center and got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al discovered in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn shares these biomechanical effects with our Ashburn back pain patients daily. It’s important to have science behind what we do.

Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has managed much of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction.
