Dr. Mark Korchok is certified in Cox Flexion-Distraction Decompression technic, and is the only certified chiropractic physician in Cincinnati. Cox Technic is researched and well documented spinal manipulation that relieves lower back pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain and a number of other spinal related conditions such as disc herniation, spinal stenosis, post surgical spinal pain, and pregnancy related back pain.
