Layden Chiropractic Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Plainville Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are a bit older, you probably know spinal stenosis. You experienced its hurting effects yourself or someone near you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It is no fun! No magic pill heals it or prevents it. But chiropractic care using the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, slowly and steadily. Once on the other side of spinal stenosis’ pain, Plainville chiropractic patients are more fully equipped to do what they can to decrease the chances of future episodes, prepared with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration tips, and the knowledge that Plainville chiropractic care at Layden Chiropractic is effective.


One of the first ever 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 revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more effective for pain reduction and disability improvement. (2) Another study showed that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports indicates that there is evidence that chiropractic care is potentially beneficial for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It further stresses that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That is true at Layden Chiropractic! Plainville spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our Plainville chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often comes with lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Plainville 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 lead to improved consequences (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Layden Chiropractic offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Plainville spinal stenosis patients. Layden Chiropractic treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
