Dr Michelli is certified in providing specialized techniques for treatment of neck pain,  low back pain, and lumbar disc herniations and has been doing so for more than 35 years. The closed disc reduction spinal decompression techniques that we use are based on the life’s work of Dr. James Cox,DC, DACBR.

Back pain affects 8 out of 10 Americans at some time in their lives. Cox Technic is research-documented spinal manipulation that has been proven to relieve lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain and a host of other spinal related conditions like disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post-surgical continued pain; pregnancy related back pain, and sciatica. Cox Technic’s developer, Dr. James M. Cox, has insisted for nearly 50 years on documenting the science of this non-surgical alternative to back surgery.

For nearly 50 years Dr. Cox has documented the safety, effectiveness, and science of this non-surgical alternative to back surgery. The result of decades of research and treatment of disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, stenosis, sciatica, and radicular conditions have demonstrated that spinal decompression results in:

• Reducing intradiscal pressures from + 25mmHg to a negative 192mmHg.
• Increased disc space height. [more space, less pressure, more cushion]
• Increased foramina [the space that the spinal nerves exit through] area up to28%
• Allows for the adjustment of the facet joints to restore normal range of motion while decompression is applied to the vertebral segment.
• Allows facet and vertebral adjusting that should not be adjusted with conventional high velocity low amplitude adjusting procedures for conditions like spinal stenosis due to Degenerative Joint Disease, disc herniation, ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, and congenital developmental anomalies.

Other treatments fall short of addressing the underlying spinal dysfunction associated with intervertebral discopathy. The Cox technique is specific vertebral segment treatment, performed on a specialized table, that is delivered at the specific level necessary for relief of the pain associated with spinal stenosis, intervertebral disc conditions, and vertebral misalignments that are the cause of pain and disability.

Decompression is not traction. Traction exerts linear pull which elicits a proprioceptor response in the body, which prevents the traction device from opening up the intradiscal space enough to create the significant negative pressure required to decompress the disc. Cox decompression focuses the distraction forces to a specific spinal segment or motor unit, of the spine. This avoids the body’s natural responses that act counter to decompression. The result is that the pressure is relieved at the anatomical structures that may be causing the pain.
