Cox Distraction Technique is a gentle, chiropractic adjustment procedure specifically developed for the treatment of low back pain. Also known as Flexion/Distraction, it has become the most widely researched technique for the treatment of low back and leg pain in the chiropractic profession. The unique design of the table allows the certified practitioner to slowly and gently reduce the pressures on the disc and intervertebral joints. The result is pain relief and improved biomechanical function.
At Westside Wellness, we have built a rehabilitation program specifically designed for the patient with low back pain. Using the Cox Distraction Technique in conjunction with lumbar stabilization exercises, our program gives the patient long term results and a speedy return to their daily activities. The Cox technique is a safe alternative to back surgery for those 95% of patients whose conditions don’t demand surgical intervention.
