Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Manchester Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis causes back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s no fun! No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Manchester chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the chances of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the experience that Manchester chiropractic care at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can help.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis showed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain decrease and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published reports points out that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It further emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries! Manchester spinal stenosis patients find relief with our Manchester chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Manchester 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 as well as structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Manchester spinal stenosis patients. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries treats the whole person, not just the pain.
