Cox Flexion Distraction

What is the Cox Flexion Distraction Technique?

Cox Flexion Distraction is a method of gently and carefully adjusting your spine so that it can heal naturally. Our chiropractor performs this using gravity as a spinal manipulation non-surgical technique. We adjust your spine naturally with less pressure in the adjustment when needed. This is a common technique used for disk injuries for the alignment. IF you feel the need for our help, contact our team. Our Millersville, MD chiropractor center is always open to welcoming new and returning patients. Contact us today to schedule an appointment. We’re also happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your discomfort or procedures.

What to Expect

This technique only takes about five to ten minutes for the adjustment. Consistency is key, along with incorporating other treatments based on your consultation. Most patients describe immediate relief. We’ll use our specialized chiropractor table with moving parts that can separate different areas of your spine. This then allows for the growth of disc space between your bones, providing relief. Ultimately, this reestablishes the correct alignment in your vertebrae, giving you a greater range of motion than you had before the deterioration.

We use gravity and small manipulations to adjust your spine in a very normal range of motion. We do not apply any quick thrusts, jerks, or apply any strenuous pressure. There’s nothing to worry about. Instead, you gain the benefit of immediate relief. After we’re finished, you may notice decrease pressure in your spine, improved posture, and better circulation in your arms and legs. All of this decrease of discomfort and pain can then lead to a higher level of wellness.
