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

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably are familiar with spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting results yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun! No magic pill heals it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Preston chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the odds of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration ideas, and the knowledge that Preston chiropractic care at Chiropractic Associates can help.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable for pain decrease and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published papers indicates that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It further highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Chiropractic Associates! Preston spinal stenosis patients get relief with our Preston chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Preston sufferers. Researchers found that twice a week treatment involving 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 resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Chiropractic Associates follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Preston spinal stenosis patients. Chiropractic Associates treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
