Gregory J. Cox, DO
Dr. Gregory Cox comes to NTXMSK from A.T. Still University- Kirksville College of Medicine. He completed his residency training at Northeast Regional Medical Center where he specialized in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine. During this training, Dr. Cox also worked in emergency medicine at Putnam County Memorial Hospital.
He has chosen to focus on Osteopathic Manipulation, the core procedure in Osteopathic Medicine, promoting the structural integrity of the musculoskeletal system. A.T. Still, founder of Osteopathy, professed two primary tenets of medicine: the body has an innate ability to heal itself, and it is connected in its entirety by myofascial tissue. Because of this tissue, all parts of the body function together in an integrated manner. Restriction resulting from stress or injury in one area affects other body systems that must compensate. OMM strives to remove these restrictions, allowing the body to function most efficiently.
Dr. Cox plays an active role in Texas Osteopathic Association, TOMA, where he serves on the Board of Trustees. Founded in 1900, TOMA is the oldest statewide Osteopathic Association in the nation serving over 1400 osteopathic physicians in Texas. The primary mission of this organization:
- Promote the philosophy of the osteopathic school of medicine
- Elevate and maintain the high standards of the osteopathic profession in the fields of medicine, surgery, and obstretics
As a young man, Dr. Cox was awarded the honor of Eagle Scout by Boy Scouts of America, an organization for which he currently remains involved. In 2000, he volunteered for the International Language Program, teaching an immersion English language class for children ages 8-10 in Voronezh, Russia.
