Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Montreal for Back Pain Relief

At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic, our Montreal chiropractic patients receive cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic that is renowned, well-studied and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is really around the world…and right here in Montreal! In this piece, you will see 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 reports that patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation attain at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes stand 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 decreased by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you feel “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” Dr. Hoang's 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 valuable to do. (2, 3) Contrasted with those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is amazing! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic finds that many of our patients attain even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own distinctive issues, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Montreal back pain sufferers who really want to get back to a pleasing quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it is used with the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can deliver a distractive force and that patients showed an instant response to it. They also admitted that traction research is short on reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its usefulness. (4) Cox Technic can share researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area enlarges by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic proposes 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 increased in chronic low back pain patients handled with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. Why did this happen? They explained that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to draw the displaced 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! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic talks about these biomechanical effects with our Montreal back pain patients daily. It is important to have science behind what we do.

Listen to this PODCAST with Ram Gudavalli, PhD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has led a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – about the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he moved to the US from India! We’re so thankful he did.
