Palmer Chiropractic Center Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Lynchburg Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you likely are familiar with spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful results yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is not much fun at all! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Lynchburg chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the chances of future incidents, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the experience that Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center can help.


One of the first ever written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) Lately, 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 recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published papers points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It further highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Palmer Chiropractic Center! Lynchburg spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our Lynchburg chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Lynchburg sufferers. Researchers found that treatments two times a week 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 lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Palmer Chiropractic Center follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Lynchburg spinal stenosis patients. Palmer Chiropractic Center treats the whole patient, not only the pain.
