Adjustments and manual manipulation

Adjustments, or manual manipulations, involve minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is realigning vertebrae that have moved out of place for various reasons - whether it be from normal daily activity or trauma such as injury in a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place the body is not always able to perform or function at its peak. The flow of all nerves and systems in the body can be impacted and many patients suffer great discomfort due to their impingement. A chiropractor can move vertebrae back into place via a pressure - always applied by hand.

Traction therapy - Spinal decompressionTraction therapy - Spinal decompression

Until you experience a back injury, you have no real understanding of how debilitating it is. To make things worse, if an injury progressed to the point where a spinal disc becomes compressed - i.e. disc material moved into spaces occupied by nerves - then surgery used to be the only option for relief. Now, with the inception of the DRX9000 and ABS spinal decompression machines, patients have a non-surgical option to relieve their nonstop pain and compressed disks. If you have tried chiropractic manipulations, physical therapy, or medical prescriptions and you do not want to assume the risks associated with back surgery then spinal decompression is the next logical choice.

Auto Accident Injuries

If you have been in an auto accident don't hesitate to contact our office. Being in an auto accident is difficult in a number of ways. People frequently feel they have to put their pain second to the ordeal of having their car at the mechanic, dealing with their insurance, or potentially missing work. Some people do not even realize they had coverage available for their injuries until they are done dealing with their other responsibilities. However, if you have been in an auto accident you should make time to see your chiropractor. There could be underlying injuries that are not fully felt until after you are done dealing with that minor stiff neck. Chiropractors are specialists in soft and hard tissue problems, and that includes the knowledge of the kinds of trauma that can occur as a result of a car accident. If you have been in an auto accident you can call our office today. We can answer many of your questions, and there is no obligation to schedule an appointment.

In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use.

Therapies & Techniques

Muscle Stimulation (E-Stim)

Muscle stimulation therapy, or e-Stim, is a therapeutic treatment that applies electrical stimulation to treat pain and muscle spasms. At Cox Walk-In Chiropractic we use this therapy to help build strength and prevent atrophy in patients with muscle injuries.

Myofascial Release 

We offer an alternative medicine therapy called myofascial release that is used for treating skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release therapy is a hands-on treatment that utilizes gentle, sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relax contracted muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulates the stretch reflex in muscles.

Spinal Decompression 

At Cox Walk-In Chiropractic we use non surgical spinal decompression to help treat back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, worn spinal joints, and injured or diseased spinal nerve roots. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to change the force and position of the spine. By making this change, pressure is removed from the spinal discs and bulging or herniated discs may retract.

Therapeutic Massage 

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Trigger Point Therapy 

The use of massage for trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries. Pressure is applied to a trigger point long enough to release and relax the muscle. This increases blood flow to the muscle to allow normalization and bring it back to a health state.
