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

If you’ve experienced a La Grande motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with serious back and/or neck pain due to a spine injury. Luckily, the La Grande chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC can help ease your auto accident pain. Let’s explore 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 found 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 permanent injury status. This led the authors to call for a global way of evaluating medical impairment after MVAs to lower psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and his/her community. (1) In developing guidelines to oversee the care of traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wanted to partner with the healthcare team, desired a clearer understanding of the healthcare and insurance system earlier after their injury, required support for their emotional distress, and appreciated simple explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who worried about returning to work, researchers found that those with higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do so. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages you to be optimistic and welcomes you as a part of the team for healing!!


With our use of gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our La Grande 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 commonly used in cases of herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatic leg pain, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, post-surgical low back or neck pain, and other types of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique works by delivering gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and lower 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 uses his/her hands to apply pressure to specific points on the spine in order to achieve maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for treating many types of spinal injuries related to car accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be very painful if not treated properly.
