Young Chiropractic Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Easley Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

August 07, 2018

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Easley chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the chances of future incidents, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification ideas, and the experience that Easley chiropractic care at Young Chiropractic can help.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly useful for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Young Chiropractic! Easley spinal stenosis patients obtain relief with our Easley chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Easley sufferers. Researchers discovered that twice a week treatment including manual therapy like lumbar spine flexion distraction (generic term for Cox® Technic spinal manipulation), soft tissue and neural mobilization, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Young Chiropractic offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Easley spinal stenosis patients. Young Chiropractic treats the whole person, not just the pain.
