Cox Flexion- Distraction is a chiropractic technique that can provide a pain relieving surgical alternative for chronic neck and back pain, as well as pain in the extremities. Flexion distraction helps to restore flexibility and range of motion to the joints and other soft tissues, while contributing to spinal realignment and maintenance. This therapy is completed on a specialized table that gently yet mechanically flexes specified areas of the body. Patients who suffer from chronic and severe headaches, disc herniation and pain due to posture issues can benefit from the Cox Flexion-Distraction method. This technique is also very beneficial for patients who have had failed back surgery as well as patients who continue to experience pain and discomfort after back surgery.
