Cox traction is a gentle chiropractic technique which stretches the lower back, decreasing disc pressure, allowing relief from nerve pain in the back and down the leg. A specially designed chiropractic table is used that allows different ranges of motion for the back and legs. By reducing pressure on the spinal nerves, motion is returned to the spinal joints. Cox traction reduces pain due to disc herniation, slipped disc, ruptured disc, leg pain, sciatica, and much more.
Cox traction is a great alternative to spinal surgeries, which there are 1.2 million in the U.S each year, double the rate in other countries. Other conditions that can benefit from this therapy are degenerative disc disease, pelvic pain, headache, scoliosis (not to cure, but maintain mobility), osteoporosis and more.
