Cox Flexion Distraction Technic ®

Cox Technic is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on a distraction table. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.

Watch this video, one of our doctors Dr. Gerry Nastasia demonstrates this technique. Well-researched  and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression help relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by:

  • 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

Cox Technic is appropriate for conditions causing low back and leg pain. It also reduces pain attributable to :

  • Disc herniation
  • A ruptured disc
  • Facet syndrome
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Pregnancy-related back pain

Our Dr. Gerry is one of the few chiropractors in the Gulf region to be certified in this use of technic.
