Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we use the Cox® Technic and Inverse Gravity Decompression. These are Spinal manipulation techniques that relieves back pain, leg pain, neck pain, arm pain as well as conditions like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain and pregnancy related back pain.
Cox® Technic developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on research and documenting the science of this non surgical approach to back pain relief and alternative to back surgery, in the hands of well trained back specialists.
Evidence based protocols are tested in laboratory trials and clinical trials supported by privately funded, clinician volunteer, and Federally Funded Research grants through the US National Institutes for Health and Health Resources and Services Administration to name a few. Their objectives are to document the actual effect Cox® Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression, has on the spine and its nerves to relieve pain, (drops pressure) as well as the amount of time in days.
