COX Distraction Technique

Decompression Manipulation

There are several potential approaches to manipulation of the spine. One approach, in particular, is Flexion-Distraction Manipulation, which provides gentle decompression to specifically targeted areas of the spine, including the intervertebral discs and facet joints. This chiropractic adjustment technique (pioneered and developed by Dr. James Cox) is performed manually where the chiropractor’s hand is in constant contact with the level of the spine being manipulated while gentle traction is applied. Flexion-Distraction Manipulation is typically very comfortable and requires no sudden or aggressive movements. This type of spinal manipulation is also very effective in treating disc herniations and spinal stenosis.
