Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs alone
are painful and often considered surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling,
painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical
issue requiring fusion. Bring these two conditions
together in in one patient and the Pflugerville
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Pflugerville
chiropractor face a challenge that demands
gentle, skilled 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 – detailed how just
9 visits in 4 weeks brought about pain relief.
The patient who ranked 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. At 10
years follow-up, the patient demonstrated 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.

disc bulges positively responded to his treatment utilizing
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. Reduce your risk of
diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Have an apple!
Apples are very healthy! They have hardly
any calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good
gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, lots of polyphenols
in the peel which are antioxidant, acetylcholine-level-preserving factors
to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may lower blood pressure,
cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round
out a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
