What is The Cox® Technic (Technique) in Scottsdale AZ?

Cox Technic is a clinically proven, non-surgical, doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulation performed with the patient lying on a specially designed treatment table.

  • Cox Technic is research-documented and clinically successful in relieving spine pain and spine-related pain.
  • Done by a trained, Cox Certified Physician, it is used to treat acute and chronic back pain as well as failed back surgery syndromes.
  • The technique does not involve traditional adjusting with "popping" of the spine. It gently tractions the patient's spine with a slow pumping motion.
  • It is very comfortable and does not hurt the patient.
  • It is also a good technique for patients with osteoporosis, as there is no thrusting on the spine.

Dr. Grgula has been a Certified Cox Physician since 1995.

I am the longest certified doctor of only a handful of Cox doctors in Arizona. I receive my re-certification status by writing case studies on my most difficult patient cases, and present them as trainings at doctor conferences.

The goal of the technique is to relieve pressure (compression)
on the nerves by creating space (decompression).

How It Helps

Flexion-distraction and decompression help relieve patients' spinal pain and regain their quality of life by:

  • Gentle pumping of the spine without thrusting or popping
  • Decompressing compressed vertebral discs
  • Reducing pressure on the spinal nerves
  • Returning motion to the spine allows patients to enjoy their activities with little or no pain

What conditions are treated with Cox Technic?

Cox Technic is used for many serious conditions that cause low back and leg pain as well as neck and arm pain. It also reduces pain caused by …

  • Failed back surgery
  • Disc herniation or protrusion
  • A slipped disc
  • A ruptured disc
  • Facet syndrome
  • Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Many other conditions

I've tried chiropractic before. Why is this different?

The Cox Technic is different because it does not require the forceful adjusting style that causes the "popping" of the spine. It is very gentle and is a science-based method of adjusting the spine.

Does it hurt?

No. The Cox Technic is very gentle, and the table is pumped up and down, left and right, or in a circular motion. It is not designed to be forceful or to cause pain during your treatment.

How long do the results last? Do I have to keep coming back for more treatments?

We recommend that once the intensive care portion of your treatment plan is done, you come in at least once a month for 6 weeks for maintenance. This allows the decompression of the discs to hold over time.
