Main Content

Cox Flexion-Distraction is a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure that works with the body's natural design to aid it in healing. A special table has been developed for effective use of this technique. The Cox Table, a Flexion -Distraction table, is used to apply the distraction spinal manipulation adjustment. By tractioning the spine and then flexing it can resolve pain from joint and disc problems painlessly. It is a powerfully effective, conservative approach to low back and leg pain, and an alternative to explore before recommending surgery. For patients with non-disc related conditions causing back pain (facet syndrome, spondylolisthesis, sprain/strain, scoliosis, transitional vertebra, sacroiliac subluxation, stenosis), Cox Flexion-Distraction provides all of the above benefits plus the ability to place spinal joints into normal movements to restore spinal motion without pain.


This technique is a hands-on decompression treatment.

The disc is a soft cartilaginous material that separates the spinal vertebrae. There are Discs starting at the the third cervical (Neck) vertebra all the way down to the lowest Lumbar  vertebrae L 5. The Discs middle is called the nucleus and and outer layer called the annulus.These discs act as shock absorbers and are done growing usually around 19 years of age. They become avascular (does not receive a good blood supply).  One of the reasons that our discs give us so many problems is that they do not heal well without a good blood supply. When we break a bone it heals quickly and actually stronger than before! Our discs are avascular so if a disc is injured it continues to degenerate and does not heal properly. One of the amazing benefits of decompression is that it heightens the disc space, and it is seen to return it to normal size and function.  

The Decompression therapy also causes the disc to heal because the treatment stimulates the cartilage to regenerate by allowing the nutrient rich blood to fill the disc space which fosters the healing response.

Dr. Weinberg believes in using hands-on decompression performed by the Doctor and not a computer guided system.  Hands-on decompression is also much more affordable than the often hyped computerized methods.

Dr. Weinberg has been using this technique for the past 20 years and has helped thousands of patients relieve their disc and non-disc related back and leg pain.
