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

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Minster chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to reduce the odds of future episodes, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification ideas, and the experience that Minster chiropractic care at Minster Chiropractic Center can help.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about 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 reduction and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in 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 Minster Chiropractic Center! Minster spinal stenosis patients obtain reprieve with our Minster chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Minster sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week consisting of 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) Minster Chiropractic Center follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Minster spinal stenosis patients. Minster Chiropractic Center treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
