How Georgetown Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

January 17, 2023

If you’ve experienced a Georgetown motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Luckily, the Georgetown chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Dr. Butwell can help ease your pain. Let’s explore how this form of treatment can help back and/or neck pain sufferers after an auto accident.


A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings reported a wide range of ratings after an accident - 2% - 23% for car occupants and 2.8% [-|to]9] 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to call for a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to lower psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and the community. (1) In developing guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wished to partner with the healthcare team, wanted a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and appreciated uncomplicated explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who were concerned about returning to work, researchers found that those who had higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do that. (3) Dr. Butwell encourages you to be optimistic!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Georgetown patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is a well-researched form of chiropractic care that works to reduce inflammation and ease back pain. It is often used in cases of herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatic leg pain, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other forms of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique works by using gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, decrease inflammation, and ease pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it offers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor places his/her/hands on the spine to apply pressure to specific points along the spine in order to attain maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries related to car accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be quite painful if not treated appropriately.
