Cox Technique

What is the Cox Technique?

Cox Technic is non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on The Cox Table, our proprietary, specially designed chiropractic instrument. This table permits the effective administration of flexion-distraction and decompression adjustment and manipulation.

Well-researched and documented, flexion-distraction and decompression helps relieve spinal pain and return patients to their desired quality of life by …

  • dropping intradiscal pressure to as low as -192mm Hg
  • widening the spinal canal foraminal area by 28%
  • reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • returning motion to the spinal joints
The goal of Cox Technic is to help the spinal pain patient go from "pain" to "no pain" as quickly as possible following the "rule of 50%" which governs the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Ju has been a lifesaver. After spending years going to different doctors trying to treat my symptoms, I finally found someone to understand and treat the cause. It has taken years to cause my problems and I have had to be patient during my rehab but I have gone from excruciating pain in my neck to feeling great and healthy. Thanks Doc!"
