Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Eugene for Back Pain Relief

At Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic, our Eugene chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, recognized, researched and helpful for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in Eugene! In this article, you will read studies from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A recent research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get 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 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 think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic must remind you that medicine now sees 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to deem a medical procedure like spine surgery worthwhile to do. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic finds that many of our patients get even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients vary and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Eugene back pain sufferers who just want to get back to an agreeable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it’s used with the right type of 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 present researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area increases by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be returned to specific spinal segments. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 revealed that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients handled with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. How does this happen? They explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the moved 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! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares these biomechanical effects with our Eugene back pain patients daily. It’s key to have science behind what we do.

Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has managed 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 are so grateful he did.
