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 often thought to be a surgical
issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the West Des Moines
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your West Des Moines
chiropractor face a challenge that calls for
gentle, skilled care. A newly published case
report of a patient with a disc extrusion – one that
has escaped its outer bands and entered 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 being
the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on the
ninth visit. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or
neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of

Enjoy This Apple
Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise 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 few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good
gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, lots of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, 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!
