Spine researcher, Dr. Ram Gudavalli shares his research findings as to what happens in the human spine during Cox Technic that makes it so effective.
Dr. Gudavalli obtained Bachelor of Science degree and basic engineering degrees from India, and Master of engineering degree from McMaster University, Canada, and a PhD degree from University of Cincinnati. Gudavalli has been affiliated with basic and translational biomechanics research for more than 20 years. He has obtained several federal grants as a principal investigator, co-leader, and as a co-investigator to do research on basic science studies related to musculoskeletal system as well as clinical studies on low back pain and neck pain.
Dr. Gudavalli has conducted biomechanical experiments on human cadavers, animals, and human subjects, and low back and neck pain patients. As part of the studies Dr. Gudavalli measured motions, forces, balance, and electromyographic activity during experimental studies. Dr. Gudavalli developed instrumentation with real time feed back of forces during spinal manipulation procedures for training of clinicians. Dr. Gudavalli has developed computer models for understanding the motion segment behavior of lumbar spine.
