It isn't, completely, necessary to cut them back all the way. Usually, you will trim, only the dead flowers heads off. That's not to say that you can't cut them completely. Sometimes, after a few years, they will need a good regenerative pruning.

This article will give you a good run-down of their simple care requirements: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/phlox/growing-garden-phlox.htm
