Cox Technique

The Cox Technique founder, Dr. Cox explains Cox Technique / Flexion-Distraction as a marriage of chiropractic principles with osteopathic principles. These principles were set forth by Alan Stoddard, DO, in his book, ‘Manual of Osteopathic Technique’ written about the manipulative procedures developed by John McManis, DO, in the early 1900’s.

Founded In Research

Since the early 1970’s, Dr. Cox has refined the technique; he has developed a manipulation instrument for effective use of the technique; conducted clinical, as well as participated in experimental, research; lectured around the world; and written well-received articles, chapters for textbooks, and textbooks.

Understanding Cox Technique

Cox Flexion-Distraction is a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure that works with the body’s natural design to aid it in healing. Dr. Cox has developed Cox Technique and a special table for the effective use of the technique. The Cox Table, a Flexion -Distraction table, is used to apply the distraction spinal manipulation adjustment.

Effective, Safe Results

Tractioning the spine and then flexing it can resolve pain from joint and disc problems painlessly. It is a powerfully effective, conservative approach to low back and leg pain, and an alternative to explore before recommending surgery.

For patients with non-disc related conditions causing back pain (facet syndrome, spondylolisthesis, sprain/strain, scoliosis, transitional vertebra, sacroiliac subluxation, stenosis), Cox Flexion-Distraction provides all of the above benefits plus the ability to place spinal joints into normal movements to restore spinal motion without pain.

Both Dr. Purser and Dr. Jones have advanced certification in this technique and have a Cox Flexion-Distraction table at their clinic.
