Spinal Decompression

type of treatment

Cox Technique

Cox Technique is nonsurgical, 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 help 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

Cox Technique is appropriate for conditions causing low back and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain. It also reduces pain attributable to…

  • Disc herniation
  • A slipped disc
  • A ruptured disc
  • Facet syndrome
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Other conditions

After undergoing a thorough examination that leads the doctor to a specific diagnosis of the spine condition to be treated.

  • The patient lies face down on a Cox Table.
  • Tolerance testing is performed prior to the application of Cox Technique to ensure that the treatment will not further aggravate the condition.
  • In delivering the treatment, the physician concentrates on one vertebral motion segment at a time.

The goal is to reduce stenotic effects by dropping intradiscal pressure, thus allowing disc reduction, an increase in the size of the intervertebral foramen, and a reduction of pressure on the dorsal root ganglion and the exiting nerve roots.

Client Testimonials

Dr. Iselborn and his staff are first class top to bottom. This is a complete Sports Medicine and Rehab facility that has been my port in the storm for my chiropractic needs and sports massages. I can't recommend them enough as someone who is 50 with a kindergartener who needs to be at 100% full mobility 24/7.

I'm so grateful for Sports Recovery Annex. After getting more serious about ultra and trail running, I've had my big goal as 100 miles, but after failing to complete my 50 mile race this year, I thought that dream wasn't for me. Instead of quitting, I looked for help, and found this little gem of an athlete's dream! Working with Amra has renewed my confidence in my body, and my mental game. Now I have a toolbox full of tricks to help me manage and overcome my imbalances. This ain't your momma's physical therapy/athletic training; this is challenging and my weaknesses have been brought to light in a way that motivates me to address them. I have not looked forward to a training block like I am right now in so long. I have a good feeling my body will impress me now that I've given in the right kind of attention. I can't wait to focus on becoming better instead of constantly battling to reach my baseline.

Cheers to SRA, 2024's race calendar, and a renewed hope!

My son runs high school track and field and he was having issues with his hamstring. I was referred to the Sports Recovery Annex and the staff was friendly as well as professional. I would gladly recommend anyone who is having physical problems to the Sports Recovery Annex.
