Hollstrom & Associates Inc Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Largo Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, you probably know spinal stenosis. You have felt its painful effects yourself or someone close to you does. Spinal stenosis results in back pain, neck pain, arm pain and/or leg pain (sciatica). It’s 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 bit by bit. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Largo chiropractic patients are well educated as to do what they can to reduce the odds of future incidents, armed with exercises, diet tips, daily activities’ alteration ideas, and the knowledge that Largo chiropractic care at Hollstrom & Associates Inc can help.


One of the original written and peer-review published papers by Dr. Cox, developer of Cox® Technic flexion distraction, discussed stenosis. (1) More recently, a comparison study of flexion distraction treatment to conservative treatment for patients with spinal stenosis revealed that flexion distraction spinal manipulation was more valuable for pain decrease and disability recovery. (2) Another study presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation resulted in pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports points out that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients experiencing pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Hollstrom & Associates Inc! Largo spinal stenosis patients get reprieve with our Largo chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication frequently accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, producing cramping leg pain for its Largo sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week including 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 along with structured home-based exercises, and instruction of self-management strategies lead to improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Largo spinal stenosis patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc treats the whole patient, not just the pain.
