Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs by themselves
are painful and often 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 a single patient and the Sandy Springs
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Sandy Springs
chiropractor face a challenge that calls for
gentle, experienced care. A recently published case
report of a patient with an extruded disc – 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 a month brought about pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on the
ninth visit. Follow-up at 10 years revealed that the patient showed no orthopedic or
neurological issues and recounted 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 reacted 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 raise your
bone density to help your spine. Lower 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 make you
feel full, lots of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving factors
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!
