Watertown Wellness Center Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Watertown for Back Pain Relief

At Watertown Wellness Center, our Watertown chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, recognized, well-studied and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Watertown! In this article, you’ll see studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US about Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A new research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation attain at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for 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 say “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Watertown Wellness Center must share that medicine now sees 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to offer. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! Watertown Wellness Center finds that many of our patients attain even greater improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are pleasing for Watertown back pain sufferers who just want to get back to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it is used with the proper patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can provide a distractive force and that patients exhibited an instant response to it. They also admitted that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (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 restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Watertown Wellness Center 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 enlarged in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does this happen? They explained that this treatment produced negative pressure in the disc space to draw the displaced disc content back to the center and removed painful stimuli from the annular fibers to reduce pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al found in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! Watertown Wellness Center shares these biomechanical effects with our Watertown back pain patients all the time. It is vital to have science behind what we do.

Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has directed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, adds to the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he came here from India! We’re so glad he did.
