Malverne Health & Wellness Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Malverne Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful 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 not much fun at all! No magic pill heals it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, gradually and bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Malverne chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to decrease the odds of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the knowledge that Malverne chiropractic care at Malverne Health & Wellness is effective.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed 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 valuable for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published papers points out that there is indication that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Malverne Health & Wellness! Malverne spinal stenosis patients find relief with our Malverne chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Malverne sufferers. Researchers discovered that twice a week treatment 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 resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Malverne Health & Wellness follows a similar chiropractic care system with our Malverne spinal stenosis patients. Malverne Health & Wellness treats the whole person, not just the pain.
