Watertown Wellness Center Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Watertown Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Watertown chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the odds of future incidents, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification tips, and the experience that Watertown chiropractic care at Watertown Wellness Center can help.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable for pain decrease and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published papers points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It further highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Watertown Wellness Center! Watertown spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our Watertown chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Watertown sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week involving manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Watertown Wellness Center follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Watertown spinal stenosis patients. Watertown Wellness Center treats the whole person, not just the pain.
