Dr. Butwell Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Georgetown Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

August 07, 2018

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you likely know spinal stenosis. You experienced its painful effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis gives rise to back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill cures it or stops it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may ease it, slowly and bit by bit. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Georgetown chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to decrease the chances of future incidents, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ modification tips, and the knowledge that Georgetown chiropractic care at Dr. Butwell is effective.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, was about 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 effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the most recent published reports points out that there is evidence that chiropractic care is possibly beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally emphasizes that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Dr. Butwell! Georgetown spinal stenosis patients get reprieve with our Georgetown chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Georgetown sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week 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 consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Dr. Butwell offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Georgetown spinal stenosis patients. Dr. Butwell treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
