Chiropractors trained in the Cox® Technic method use Cox flexion distraction technique for the successful treatment of chronic pain.
About one-third of Americans report that they suffer from some form of chronic pain. It is also the number one cause of long-term disability in the United States. According to a 2019 Dept. of Health & Human Services report, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.
Many Americans suffer from chronic lower back pain, neck pain, and migraines caused by a long list of conditions that can be treated with non-invasive chiropractic care. When treating chronic pain stemming from disc herniations and bulges, spinal stenosis, and nerve pains like sciatica, one chiropractic technique is considered the Gold Standard and is the most researched chiropractic procedure. It’s called Cox flexion distraction Technique.

Choosing a healthcare provider is an important decision and many people struggle with determining the right fit for themselves and their families.

Bulging disc and herniated disc are commonly used terms for intervertebral disc problems. People also use terms like slipped and ruptured, but a disc does not actually slip, and ruptured just refers to a disc that has herniated. This can understandably cause some confusion when you just want to figure out what is wrong and how to fix it. For simplicity, we will stick with bulging and herniated for the rest of this post.
In between each of your vertebrae, except the atlas and axis (C1 and C2), are flexible, gel-like pads. They are called intervertebral discs. They act as shock absorbers for your spine. These cushions absorb and disperse impact energy and provide spinal flexibility for bending and turning. Each disc is made of a tough cartilage surrounding a softer inner core called the nucleus pulposus.
Being an integral part of your spine, this puts them right next door to the bundle of nerves serving your spine and other areas. This is important to note because a bulging or protruded disc can press on these nerves and cause pain. Those nerves serve other parts of your body. That means you may feel pain in other areas, not just in your back. Read More “Bulging disc vs herniated disc: What’s the difference?”
As a parent, one of your most important goals is to help your child have the best health possible. Early screening for scoliosis can assist you in achieving your goal.
Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine of 10 degrees or more, causing a C-shaped or S-shaped curve, that affects approximately 3% of the population. The majority of those who have scoliosis begin to develop the condition early in adolescence with the onset often corresponding with pubertal growth spurts. Male and female gender differences should be taken into account since girls (age 10–14) begin this growth spurt and achieve skeletal maturity at a younger age than boys (age 12–16), therefore it can affect them sooner and is also more common in girls. Screening during these years is important when looking for and controlling spinal deformities. In rare cases, infants may show signs of spine curvature due to improper formation of the spine in the womb.
Early screening for scoliosis by a trained professional is important as scoliosis can go unnoticed in young people because it’s rarely painful in the early stages and, as with most health issues, the sooner it is caught, the more likely and easier it may be to fix. Fortunately, if caught before they become too severe, most curvatures of the spine can be treated without surgery.
Stretching is a part of a good workout process.
Stretching, also called flexibility exercise, refers to one of the four types of exercises called the balance, strength, endurance.
Comprehending the various symptoms present with lower back pain is vital in the diagnosis of an ailment. Importantly, it’s through thorough history, symptoms, and examination that an illness or medical condition can be appropriately diagnosed with a suitable treatment plan.
Notably, one of the more common low back conditions is known as Lower Cross Syndrome. This medical condition is also referred to as Pelvic Crossed Syndrome or Hyperlordosis, and it’s defined as a postural dysfunction that results in an increased arch in an individual’s lumbosacral area of the body.
Keenly, one arm of the cross indicates the muscle that is usually overly facilitated and the other arm of the cross indicates the muscles that are traditionally inhibited or weak.
