How Sitka Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a Sitka motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with significant back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Fortunately, the Sitka chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka can help ease your auto accident pain. Read in for more info on how this form of treatment can help those suffering from severe back pain after a car accident.


A recent analysis of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings described a wide range of ratings after a MVA - 2% to 23% for car occupants and 2.8% to 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to suggest the development of a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to decrease psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In creating guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wanted to partner with their healthcare team, desired a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and valued uncomplicated explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those who held higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka encourages you to be optimistic and welcomes you as a part of the team for healing!!


Undergoing gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Sitka patients have reason to be optimistic. Cox Technic is an advanced form of chiropractic care that works to reduce inflammation and reduce back pain. It is often used in cases of bulging and herniated discs, sciatic leg pain, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, persistent low back or neck pain after back surgery, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique works by delivering gentle yet firm pressure to manipulate the spine. This helps to restore mobility, decrease inflammation, and ease pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it delibers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor places his/her/hands on the spine to put pressure to certain points along the spine in order to achieve the most relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries associated with MVAs such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be extremely painful if not treated appropriately.
