the Cox* Technique?
Cox* Technique is a gentle, non-surgical, chiropractic
spinal manipulation adjustment procedure. 95% of back
pain and neck pain patients do
not require surgery.
BENEFITING FROM COX* DECOMPRESSION:
It is a safe alternative to back surgery. It is also appropriate
for failed back surgery patients who still suffer after
It stops pain, realigns the spine and restores ranges
of motion inherent to the spine while reducing low back
pain, especially in radiculopathy (extremity pain, ie.
leg pain or arm pain) patients, better than active exercise
The Cox* Technique is a marriage of osteopathic and chiropractic
manipulation principles. Today, nearly 60% of chiropractic
physicians report using it in their practices. These certified
Cox* Decompression chiropractic physicians at Dr. Stana Djurdjevic & Associates are here to help you.
Modern Research States the Cox* Technique:
1. Reduces intradiscal pressures
to -192 mmHg (on nerve roots to relieve pain)
2. Increases intradiscal height
3. Increases foraminal size up
to 28% (more room for nerve roots and spinal cord)
Cox* Decompression is DOCTOR-APPLIED, DOCTOR-CONTROLLED,
HANDS-ON, SPECIFIC CONTACT, PATIENT-FOCUSED care. To attain
the movements, the table goes "up and down" (flexion and
extension), goes "side to side" (lateral flexion), or
moves in a circular motion (circumduction). All movements
are SLOW. The doctor will hold a spinous process (the
back part of the vertebra that feels like a "bump" on
your spine) while the decompression is applied to the
patient's neck or back. Tolerance testing is performed
to be sure it causes no pain to the patient.
Failed Back Surgical Syndromes
Sciatica / Leg Pain
Failed course of Steroid Injections
"Hip Pain" due to sciatic nerve irritation
Lumbar disc herniation
Cervical disc herniation
Thoracic disc herniation
Degenerative disc disease
Loss of spine lordosis
Loss of range of spinal motion
For patients with a "slipped/bulging/ruptured/herniated"
1. increases the intervertebral disc
height making more room
and improving circulation
2. allows the nucleus pulposus (the center of the disc)
its central position and relieves
irritation of the spinal nerve
3. restores vertebral joints to their normal physiologic
4. improves posture and locomotion while relieving pain
and improving body functions.
For patients with other conditions causing back pain (facet
syndrome, spondylolisthesis, sprain/strain, scoliosis,
transitional vertebra, sacroiliac subluxation, stenosis),
Cox* Decompression provides all of the above benefits
plus the ability to place the spinal joints into normal,
painless movements so as to restore spinal motion without
