Leg Pain

Sciatica, leg pain or Radiculopathy can often be related to a spinal condition such as disc bulge or spinal stenosis. Depending on the spinal level compressed, pain can go down the back of the leg, to the foot or down the front or side of the thigh. Cox flexion-distraction spinal decompression therapy is a safe, gentle and effective way of minimizing spinal and foraminal compression and hence alleviating leg pain.

Research shows that Cox therapy is most effective in giving fast, effective and long lasting relief to back and leg pain. In fact, the research shows for patients experiencing back and leg pain they will have relief on average in 29 days and 12 visits. Some back and leg pain patients find relief in fewer days and visits, while others, with severe pain, may find that it can take a bit longer. In some instances, the pain will come and go while healing, the more time between the pain coming back, is a sign that healing is taking place.
