Cox Technic

Posted on May 1, 2014 · Posted in Pain Relief


Cox Technic is research-documented spinal manipulation to
 relieve lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain and a host of other 
spinal related conditions like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical
 continued pain, and pregnancy related back pain. Cox Technic’s developer, Dr.
James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on documenting the science of
this non-surgical alternative to back surgery approach to back pain relief 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 United States National Institutes for Health (NIH) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) 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 (29
average) and visits (12 average) it takes to relieve pain.


These protocols are well-defined in medically-published 
textbooks and peer-reviewed journal articles for physicians to study and 
scrutinize. Their proper application, even the amount of force, is taught in 
recognized postgraduate and graduate training seminars on the specifically designed Cox Table by Haven Innovation. Physicians certified in Cox Technic are 
listed in a referral directory so patients and healthcare providers may refer
with confidence.

Patients seeking relief of their lower back pain and neck 
pain can rest easy knowing that Cox Technic flexion distraction protocols are 
safe, gentle, and well-documented to help them.


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


This technique is well researched. It has been documented 
through numerous studies that flexion-distraction and decompression help
 relieve spinal pain and can help return patients to their desired quality of
 life by …


•dropping intradiscal pressure

•widening the spinal canal foraminal area

•reducing pressure on the spinal nerves

•returning motion to the spinal joints


Cox Technic is appropriate for conditions causing low back
 and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain. It also reduces pain attributable to

•Facet syndrome

•Pelvic pain

•Loss of range of spinal motion

•Whiplash-type injuries

•Persistent pain after back surgery

•Scoliosis (not to cure, but to maintain

mobility of the

•Synovial Cyst


•Mechanical back pain (such as that

ankylosing spondylitis, collagen vascularizing diseases, pelvic

pain, pregnancy)


•Neurological Diseases (such as multiple

sclerosis, cerebral
palsy, stroke)


With the use of this highly specialized technique; many patients can be saved the agony of surgery.


Low back pain is an Epidemic; 75 million Americans suffer from low back pain, with three million new cases each year. Low back pain is the second leading cause of days missed from work and the third most common cause of hospitalization in this country. Low back surgery is seven times higher in the United States than in any other country in the world!


According to a ten-year study by the US Department of Health and Human Services, surgery has been found to be helpful in only 1 out of 100 cases of low back problems. Medical, scientific and chiropractic research has shown that the most common cause of low back pain is a herniated or slipped disc. In fact, even the most minor low back pain is often caused by the Inter-vertebral Disc.


Dr. Bergeson is the ONLY physician in Georgetown who is actively certified in the COXFlexion-Distraction Technique for the treatment of herniated discs.
