Cox Technic

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.

Active Release Technique

Active Release Technique: ART…Release your Pain!
Using Active Release Technique© (ART©), Dr. Cole Bergeson provides a way to diagnose and treat the cause of cumulative trauma disorders which often result in symptoms such as numbness, tingling, burning, aching, and stiffness. ART© is a hands-on therapy that corrects muscular and soft tissue problems caused by the adhesion formations that occur with overuse or cumulative trauma.
Cumulative trauma and overuse of soft tissue causes Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI). Soft tissue that is forced to perform the same job over and over becomes irritated and then inflamed. The body responds to that inflammation by laying down scar tissue in an attempt to stabilize the area. This scar tissue, in turn, causes further inflammation and begins an ongoing cycle that worsens the condition. The longer this condition persists, the harder it is to break cycle.
