Cox Flexion Distraction Technique

The Cox Flexion Distraction Technique in Kalispell (also referred to as the Cox® Technic) was developed by Dr. James M. Cox as a gentle, non-force adjustment procedure to help the spine heal naturally. It is based on principles of both chiropractic and osteopathy, a combination that often provides fast relief from low back and leg pain, without the need for surgery. It is one of the most effective and well-researched techniques used by chiropractors.

The goal of Flexion Distraction is to decompress the spine by applying gentle stretching or traction. The Cox Flexion Distraction technique is performed on a special table which has moving parts to effectively reduce pain and pressure on the nerves of the lower back, restoring proper alignment and range of motion.

Research shows Flexion-Distraction helps:

  • reduce pressure within the disc
  • widen the spinal canal
  • improve range of motion in spinal joints and in arms, legs, and shoulders
  • improve posture
  • reduce pressure on spinal nerves
  • increase circulation
  • improve nerve communication
