Cox Flexion Distraction Therapy

What is Cox Flexion Distraction Therapy?

The Cox Technic is an advanced and gentle chiropractic adjustment for neck and back pain that drastically reduces the ill effects, risks, and high costs of surgery and can be more effective. Treatment occurs on a specially designed, partially motorized chiropractic table, The Cox Table for flexion-distraction. The table has a movable headpiece and amovable caudal piece, which is the part on which a patients legs lie. Each section flexes, extends, laterally bends and circumducts (a combination of flexion and lateral flexion) and long y-axis plane distracts.
