Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs by themselves
are painful and many times believed to be surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling,
painful condition and often thought to be a surgical
issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in one patient and the Ashburn
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Ashburn
chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for
gentle, experienced care. A newly published case
report of a patient with a disc extrusion – one that
has escaped its outer bands and settled into the spinal canal space
– and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving
separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just
9 visits in a month brought about pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient showed no orthopedic or
neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the original
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of

Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic
back pain specialist, Dr. Casey Bearden on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr.
Michael Johnson as he shared how spondylolisthesis with
disc bulges positively responded to his treatment using
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Enjoy This Apple
Feed the gut. Lose some weight and increase your
bone density to improve your spine. Lower your risk of
diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Eat an apple!
Apples are very healthy! They have hardly
any calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good
gut bacteria, lots of fiber and water to fill you up, loads of polyphenols
in the peel which are antioxidant, acetylcholine-level-preserving features
to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may reduce blood pressure,
cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round
out a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
