How Ashburn Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a Ashburn motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with serious spine-related pain in the neck or back. Fortunately, the Ashburn chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn can help alleviate your auto accident pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after an auto accident.


A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings found a wide range of ratings after an accident - 2% to 23% for car occupants and 2.8% - 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the biggest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to suggest the development of a global way of assessing medical impairment after MVAs to lower psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and the community. (1) In developing guidelines to manage traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wished to partner with their healthcare team, desired a clearer understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and appreciated simple explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do that. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn encourages you to be optimistic and invites you to be a part of the team for healing!!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Ashburn patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is an advanced form of chiropractic care that works to decrease inflammation and ease back pain. It is often used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, post-surgical low back or neck pain, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique produces results by using gentle yet firm pressure to manipulate the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and reduce pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to apply pressure to certain points on the spine in order to attain maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries associated with MVAs such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated well.
