Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique in Charlotte NC


Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique in Charlotte NC is a hands-on form of spinal manipulation designed to re-align the vertebra of the spine, specifically in the lumbar spine (or low back), in an extremely safe and pain-free manner.

Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique in Charlotte NC

Flexion-Distraction is appropriate for conditions causing low back pain and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain. It can also reduce pain related to:

  • Disc Herniation
  • Slipped Disc
  • Ruptured Disc
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis & Other Conditions

Having the patient lay prone (or face down) on a specially designed table, the doctor will push the bottom half of the table downward while applying light pressure to the spine with the other hand. The bottom half of the table would then be moved through this flexion motion as the doctor adjusts the spine.

  • Dropping Intradiscal Pressure To As Low As - 192mm Hg
  • Widening The Spinal Canal Foraminal Area By 28%
  • Reducing Pressure On The Spinal Nerves
  • Returning Motion To The Spinal Joints
