What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression with Cox® Technic is a non-surgical answer for disc related syndromes of your lumbar or cervical spine that utilizes a specialized table with controlled tension that gently stretches the spine, taking the pressure off the discs and joints, enhancing the natural healing process.
Spinal Decompression has been medically proven to reduce pain and alleviate symptoms and conditions related to:
- Herniated/Bulging Discs
- Degenerative Discs
- Chronic Neck/Back Pain
- Arthritis or Facet Syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
- Pre/Post Surgical Patients
The Spinal Decompression Cox® Table
A Spinal Decompression Cox® Table is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause the pain and facilitate the natural healing of spinal discs. With precise and painless controlled tension, the specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside.
The Cox® Table Table comfortably and accurately increases intersegmental disc space, providing non-surgical decompression of discs. Tears in the disc annulus can be repaired, allowing sufficient fluids and nutrients to be re-introduced into the nucleus to reverse the disc degeneration, bulging discs, and collapse resulting from an injury. Rehydration of the disc nucleus will restore disc height, which relieves the pressure on inflamed facet joints.
It is a medical fact that damaged discs seldom heal independently, as the discs are constantly under pressure. The Cox® Decompression Table uses clinically proven principles to reduce the pressure inside the discs. Decompression promotes the transfer of fluids, nutrients, and oxygen back inside the discs and results in the retraction of bulging or herniated discs, providing relief of nerve pressure and pain.
According to recent clinical trials, utilizing MRI, pre, and post-treatment on a similar table, disc herniations were reduced by 10% to 90%. Patching and healing of the annulus were also evident.
A typical treatment consists of a predetermined recommended time on the Cox® 7 flexion-distraction table. All treatments are administered with the patient fully clothed. The patient is positioned on the table and comfortably secured to a fixed part of the table. The specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside of the disc. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients fall asleep.
At the conclusion of the treatment series, when the disc injury has been corrected, patients are given strengthening exercises to avoid repeat injury. After only a few weeks of treatment, research has shown amazing results in relieving the debilitating pain caused by degenerative, bulging, herniated, or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and many, failed back surgery cases. Most patients are able to return to normal levels of activity or recreation in just a few weeks’ time.
