The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider Offers the World-Studied Cox® Technic Here in Ottawa for Back Pain Relief

At The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider, our Ottawa chiropractic patients get cutting-edge spinal care in the form of Cox® Technic, known, researched and relieving for back pain. Cox® Technic is truly around the world…and right here in Ottawa! In this piece, you’ll see papers from Spain, Korea, Japan, and the US regarding Cox® Technic and how it eases back pain.

SPAIN: 50% AND SUPERIOR CLINICAL OUTCOMES

A recent research paper by researchers and physiotherapists in Spain describes how patients cared for with flexion distraction spinal manipulation get at least 50% improvement. Further, flexion distraction outcomes are superior to high velocity low amplitude thrust technique outcomes. (1) A note on this 50% improvement marker: Cox® Technic protocols look for at least 50% improvement within the first month of care for most spine pain conditions at which time (a) visit frequency is reduced by 50% and (b) treatment would now include some range of motion treatment to spinal segments. And if you think “Well, 50% doesn’t seem like that much.” The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider must comment that medicine now sees 30% and even 20% improvement as “minimal clinical improvement” to declare a medical procedure like spine surgery valuable to perform. (2, 3) Compared to those markers for a procedure to be medically beneficial, Cox® Technic’s 50% Rule guide and attainment is marvelous! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider finds that many of our patients get even more improvement: 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% and higher. All cases and patients differ and have their own unique concerns, but the clinical outcomes are satisfactory for Ottawa back pain sufferers who really want to get back to a reasonable quality of life.

JAPAN & US: TRACTION AND COX® TECHNIC

Traction is effective treatment…for some and when it’s used with the right type of patient. 83.2% of patients did in a Japanese study. These researchers presented that lumbar traction can provide a distractive force and that patients exhibited an immediate response to it. They also admitted that traction research lacks reproducibility, biomechanical confirmation, and clinical validation of its effectiveness. (4) Cox Technic can show researched effects. Cox® Technic biomechanical studies found that the lumbar spine disc pressures drop to as low as -192mmHg, the lumbar canal area increases by 28%, the disc height increases by 17%, and ranges of motion can be restored to specific spinal segments. (5) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers that Cox® Technic is well-researched, segment specific spinal manipulation with predictable clinical outcomes.

KOREA: COX® TECHNIC POSITIVELY IMPACTS THE SPINE

And in Korea, researchers revealed that disc heights significantly enlarged in chronic low back pain patients treated with joint mobilization and flexion distraction techniques. Why did this happen? They described that this treatment created negative pressure in the disc space to pull the displaced disc content back to the center and got rid of painful stimuli from the annular fibers to decrease pain. (6) Just what Gudavalli et al found in their biomechanical research of the effects of Cox® Technic flexion distraction on the lumbar spine in the 1990’s! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider shares these biomechanical effects with our Ottawa back pain patients all the time. It’s key to have science behind what we do.

Listen to this PODCAST with Ram Gudavalli, PhD, on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson. Dr. Gudavalli is the principle investigator who has headed a great deal of the biomechanical and clinical research studies – retrospective, prospective and experimental with cadavers – into the effects of Cox Technic flexion distraction. He, too, enhances the world-wide flare of Cox® Technic as he came here from India! We’re so glad he did.
