Cox® Technic Seminars Teach Flexion-Distraction Protocols

March 19, 2010 09:47 by juliecoxcid

Cox® Seminars teach the biomechanics, examination, diagnosis and treatment of spinal pain conditions. Treatment is focused on Cox® flexion-distraction and decompression protocols performed by chiropractic physicians who use their hands and their palpatory skills to adjust the spine. Cox® Seminars emphasize the role of the chiropractic physician and his/her trained hands in caring for spinal pain conditions.

60% of chiropractors reported to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners that they use Cox® Technic.

Chiropractic research projects funded by various organizations from NIH to HRSA to FCER continue to investigate chiropractic flexion distraction. Projects are underway at Palmer Research Center (Gudavalli et al), National University of Health Sciences (Gudavalli & Cambron), New York College of Chiropractic (Dougherty) among others. These projects' goals and outcomes as available are shared.

Cox® Seminars teach the proper application of flexion-distraction protocols. Attending doctors are often taken aback at the low amount of force and at the depth of flexion that is actually required (only 1 to 2 degrees when the protocol is applied correctly). There is nothing like hands-on experience training to really grasp what a technique is all about.
