MSNBC: Back Surgery May Backfire for Back Pain Patients

October 18, 2010 15:49 by juliecoxcid

 

MSNBC reports on the statistics of back surgery which aren't all that favorable: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39658423/ns/health-pain_center

  1. 600,000 Americans choose back surgery
  2. 1450 Ohio Work Comp back pain patients with similar diagnoses:
    • 1/2 had surgery with fusion - At 2 years, 26% returned to work...plus a 41% increase in pain killer use.
    • 1/2 did not have surgery - At 2 years, 67% returned to work.
  3. 2007 Agency for Health Care Policy and Reform reports
    • 27 million Americans with back problems
    • $30.3 million spent on back pain.
    • PT, pain management, chiropractic, spine surgeries (which makes up the most)
  4. complicated spine surgeries with fusion - 8 times increase in 15 years
  5. "Even when the surgery is a success, it rarely dispels 100 percent of back pain."

Conservative options like chiropractic, particularly Cox Technic flexion distraction decompression, is ready to help patients after surgery who still suffer, but is most viable for those patients before surgery who need pain relief.

Cox® Distraction Manipulation Effective for Stenosis Pain Relief

March 10, 2010 00:49 by juliecoxcid
Murphy, Hurwitz, Gregory, and Clary report on a study of a non-surgical approach to lumbar spinal stenosis management that includes distraction manipulation, neural mobilization and exercise. (in BMC MUSCULOSKELETAL DISORDERS 2006; 7:NIL_1-NIL_8) This report reveals that distraction manipulation improved lumbar spine stenosis patients by 76% and disability improved in 73%. The patients were treated an average of 13.3 times. Murphy et al present this paper as a starting point for more studies on stenosis. They report encouragement that such a combination as this for stenosis is positive.

The goal of Cox® Technic is to open the canal space that is narrowed in spinal stenosis. Stenosis sufferers appreciate the relief.
