The re-certification process enhances certified practitioners’ awareness and knowledge of the latest research and procedures related to Cox® Technic as well as keeps the referral directory reliable. *
“… thank you for a WONDERFUL seminar! I really needed the refresher! I promise myself I will not let it go that long in the future.” ~ L. Grgula, DC, Arizona, recent re-certified doctor
The Recertification Process Options
To attain/retain ACTIVE status on the website, you will do one of the following once every two years (to extend your listing for two years). Choose ONE:
1 - attend one PART 1 OR PART 2 course (12 or 18 hrs) (no new test, only attendance)
2 - attend one PART 3 course (full hours available, usually 12) (no new test, only attendance)
3—write a case report on a case that you treated using Cox® Technic protocols (approved by Dr. Cox et al.) in proper format and include a clear discussion of recent Cox® Technic research outcomes. YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO SEEK PUBLICATION in JMPT, J of Chiro Osteo, JACM, etc. Please check their websites for author instructions. If you do not seek formal publication like that, we would like you to consider sharing/publishing it via this website. If published on a website, it is not able to be published in a journal, so consider your options before choosing journal or website publishing.
Once “certified” or "recertified," the physician's name is listed in the referral directory — ACTIVE or INACTIVE — unless you were not re-certified since 1/1/04.
Starting January 1, 2004, anyone who had not thus far “recertified” needed to do so by January 1, 2007 (three years later) or be removed from the “ACTIVE CERTIFIED PHYSICIANS” directory until “re-certified” and placed on the “inactive” list.
After January 1, 2004, the newly certified Cox® Technic certified physician must take at least one course every two years to maintain his/her listing in the referral directory.
After January 1, 2007, all certified physicians must “re-certify” once every two years.
After “re-certifying”, the Cox® Technic physician must take at least one course every two years to maintain his/her listing in the referral directory OR write a case report and have it published (website or journal). If a doctor takes more than one course by the end of his/her two years, that is fine, but hours are not carried over. A recertification course must be taken in the last 24 months prior to the last date of the (re)certification.
Currently on list in black since 1/1/04 (not RED). Re-certify by January 1, 2007.
Certified or recertified in November 2004: re-certify by January 1, 2007.

* NOTE: Certification in Cox® Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression Adjustment & Manipulation (aka flexion-distraction) and listing in the referral directory is a responsibility as is maintenance of the listings as reliable. A patient seeking a practitioner who does this technique does so in hopes of finding a physician to care for his/her spinal condition with this technique on a flexion-distraction table. We strive to keep the listings accurate. Please keep in touch with us.
