Cox Spinal Decompression Therapy

Cox Decompression Therapy

Care Medical Center was a pioneer in introducing Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy to South Georgia in 2003. This Medical Breakthrough is called Cox Decompression Therapy (COX-D). The treatment is safe, painless, non-invasive, non-surgical and clinically proven to treat neck pain, back pain, herniated/bulging discs, spinal stenosis, numbness/tingling and sciatica. When you consider a treatment for your neck or back pain, the bottom line is RESULTS. Clinical research has proven Cox Decompression Therapy to be 91% effective for lumbar sprain/strain and 86% effective for herniated discs.

Cox Decompression Therapy is a treatment performed on a table and administered by a trained Doctor. The treatment is safe and painless and many patients get relief after the first treatment. The table can be adjusted to make sure that you are comfortable during the treatment. You may be a candidate for decompression therapy if you have experienced any of the following conditions: back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, sciatica, numbness/tingling.

What is Involved With A Spinal Decompression Therapy Program?

Decompression Therapy Is A Technique Used To Help Heal Spinal Discs & Relieve Pain.

Spinal Decompression is precise computer controlled tension that gently distracts the specific disc segment to reduce pain caused by:

  • Herniated/Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Chronic Neck/Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Radiculopathy
  • Arthritis or Facet Syndrome
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Pre/Post Surgical Patients

About Decompression Therapy

The Spinal Disc Decompression Table is designed to alleviate the underlying problems that cause the pain, and facilitate the natural healing of discs. With precise and painless computer controlled tension, the specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside the disc.

The Spinal Decompression Table comfortably and accurately increases intersegmental disc space, providing non-surgical decompression of discs. Tears in the disc annulus can be repaired, and sufficient fluids and nutrients can be introduced into the nucleus to reverse the disc degeneration, bulging discs, and collapse resulting from an injury. Rehydration of the disc nucleus can restore disc height which relieves the pressure on inflamed facet joints.

It is a medical fact that damaged discs seldom heal on their own, as the discs are constantly under pressure. The 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.

Through recent clinical trials, utilizing MRI, pre and post treatment on a similar table, disc herniations were reduced 10% to 90%, according to the number of treatment sessions. Patching and healing of the annulus were also evident.

A typical daily treatment consists of 30 minutes on the decompression 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 table section will be electronically tilted, so that specific spinal segments can be targeted with precise and painless computer controlled tension. The specific disc segment is gently distracted to reduce the pressure inside of the disc. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients fall asleep. Most patients will find relief of their symptoms between 5 and 10 sessions while the average recommended course of treatment is 20 sessions. Ideally, the treatments are performed daily with a rest on the weekend.

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.

A Success Story


“When I herniated my L-5/S-1 disc three years ago I was told I would have to have surgery and quit work. I decided to undergo the same spinal decompression therapy that I recommend for my patients and now I live pain-free! I am able to work, play golf, fish and carry on a healthy active lifestyle.”
