In clinical practice, Dr BenEliyahu relies on the chiropractic treatment procedure called a Cox Table and Spinal Disc Decompression. This table helps to treat both the neck and back by stretching the joints and the discs to restore joint alignment and mechanics, as well reducing intradiscal pressure and protrusions.
