A Word on Cox Technique®…John Battershill Revelation Health Centre Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic


Approximately 80% of patients with low back pain have disc injury involvement in their pain.

Treating the soft tissue and muscles around low back pain when there’s a disc involvement is not treating the cause of the pain.

The most effective method of treating disc injury and low back pain is from Cox Spinal Decompression. This form of treatment is safe and comfortable and effective.

Countless patients of mine have accelerated their recoveries as a result!
