Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office Uses the "Most Commonly Used" Cox® Technic to Relieve Groton Spinal Stenosis Related Back Pain

Stenosis. If you are of a certain age, 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 not much fun at all! No magic pill cures it or prevents it. But chiropractic care incorporating the gentle Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation system may relieve it, gradually and steadily. After the spinal stenosis pain is better, Groton 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’ modification ideas, and the knowledge that Groton chiropractic care at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can help.


One of the original 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 presented that Cox® flexion distraction manipulation brought about pain improvement by 76% and disability by 73%. (3) Today, one of the newest published reports indicates that there is indication that chiropractic care is potentially useful for patients suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis. It additionally highlights that chiropractic treatments of spinal stenosis are most often flexion-distraction manipulation. (4) That’s true at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office! Groton spinal stenosis patients find reprieve with our Groton chiropractic services.


Neurogenic claudication often accompanies lumbar spinal stenosis, causing cramping leg pain for its Groton sufferers. Researchers discovered that treatments two times a week involving 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 resulted in improved outcomes (pain, disability, walking ability, treatment satisfaction). (5) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office offers a similar chiropractic care system with our Groton spinal stenosis patients. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office treats the whole person, not just the pain.
