Evidence-Based Protocol for Back Pain and Neck Pain Relief

September 26, 2011 10:51 by juliecoxcid

Healthcare costs and healthcare demands are all the talk today. Families struggle with healthcare decisions. Politicians and insurance companies are changing the system. Doctors are changing their office protocols to meet the new guidelines. It's hard to keep up for everyone. But for your health, you know that evidence-based protocols are those that you want for your loved ones when they hurt.

Evidence-based protocols come from documentation by clinicians and researchers seeking an answer to help sufferers. When it comes to back pain and lower back pain and neck pain sufferers, Cox Technic strives to provide the evidence-based protocols to make a difference in your lives. Researchers from prestigious universities and research centers (click here to see some of the federally funded projects and who is involved) work together to document the biomechanical (answering the question: what happens during Cox Technic?) and clinical (answering the question: how long does it take to get relief?) of Cox Technic.

Systematically, researchers and clinicians work to define the evidence-based protocols that will relieve back pain and neck pain without surgery or drugs when possible. When a doctor implements evidence-based protocols in his or her clinical practice, patients can feel a bit more assured that there is a level of science and understanding behind those protocols and find reasonable relief of pain. All persons involved know what to expect and what to do when those expectations are not met.

Evidence-based medicine and clinical protocols are the present and the future of healthcare. If something works, it will likely be used and paid for. If it doesn't, it likely won't.

If you suffer with back pain or related extremity pain or neck pain, contact a Cox Technic certified physician to discuss your condition and expectation of relief. Cox Technic treatment protocols are safe and gentle.

If you are physician seeking to implement an evidence-based protocol in your spine pain practice, contact us for information on educational opportunities and training seminars, research, and publications about the evidence-based protocols of Cox Technic.

Cox Seminar in Nashville - Relieve Back Pain and Promote Wellness

August 31, 2011 09:48 by juliecoxcid

Interesting how wellness is all the rage today in healthcare, isn't it? But when patients are in pain - back pain, neck pain, related leg pain or arm pain, they want pain relief. Cox Technic is the chiropractic technique for that, and the Cox Seminar is the chiropractic continuing education seminar to deliver the information to successfully implement it in your chiropractic practice.

If you treat these spinal pain conditions, patients will come. You get them feeling better. They appreciate you. That's the time to introduce your tips on wellness to maintain their returned painfree (or less painful) lifestyle.

At the newly re-opened and renovated Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN, Dr. James Cox, developer of Cox Technic protocols, hosts a chiropractic continuing education weekend of Cox Technic for spine pain relief. He has enjoyed nearly 50 years of chiropractic practice and has grown his practice by treating back pain, neck pain, etc., then incorporating wellness tips as the patients come along. With today's emphasis on wellness, today's patients are even more receptive to this sort of discussion.

So, neurosurgeon, Rudy Kachmann, MD, has found much of the same in his years in surgical practice. Patients want pain relief then wellness. He tries to introduce wellness earlier to his patients as well as after care. You'll enjoy his presentation on how mind/body and wellness fit in the healthcare system. He discusses diet, yoga, meditation, books, and other conservative, wellness approaches to pain relief and control.

Then, several Cox Technic certified practitioners are going to present actual patient cases of pain relief and their discusses with patients once that is attained. A few of them will share how they work interdisciplinarily within their local communities.

And a bonus is that Dr. Ram Gudavalli, Cox Technic flexion distraction's researcher, will be there with his pressure measuring transducer for all to see as well as present new information not yet published from research studies.

This weekend will be packed with great, practical information on patient examination, diagnosis, treatment, wellness, and research. Cox Technic is highlighted as well as chiropractic's being the profession to see for spinal pain issues, the door to wellness along with pain relief.

Boston Cox Seminar A Success

July 27, 2011 10:52 by juliecoxcid

Twenty-two chiropractic doctors and students joined at the beautiful Hyatt Boston Harborside Hotel for a weekend of hands-on and academic experience. Lead by Dr. Ralph Kruse, the doctors from Norway to Illinois to Connecticut to Canada heard about the history of Cox Technic, saw videotaped cases of Dr. James Cox, the developer of Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression spinal manipulation, applying Cox Technic protocols from the spinal manipulation to ancillary therapies and exercise, gained insights into the biomechanics of flexion distraction based on federally funded HRSA grant studies and the clinical outcomes of flexion distraction, and felt how the proper application of Cox Technic should feel as both the doctor and patient. Always an amazing finding is how small the motion is to get the desired effect. One to 2 inches of motion from the treatment starting point is all it takes. There is no need or desire for 16° of flexion when applying flexion distraction properly. Further, dropping intradiscal pressures on the DRG is important. Pain is when there is more than 20mm of pressure on the DRG nerves according to Takahashi.

You get the latest research presented in concise form, as well as individual hands-on with the technique that is invaluable. When’s the last time a seminar day flew by? Good stuff.”

– Boston Part I (7/11) attendee comment on evaluation form

So consider joining the next Cox Technic Part I Certification Course in San Diego on September 9-10, 2011. You’ll be amazed at today’s 21st century, gentle, evidence-based, effective clinical protocols of Cox Technic that have evolved since you took it in school or heard about it from a colleague!

Check the website for more information on Cox Technic and on the seminars we offer. Then, contact us with any questions.

Chiropractic and Back Pain

May 9, 2011 11:34 by juliecoxcid

Chiropractic and Back Pain. Chiropractic and Neck Pain. Chiropractic and Spine Pain. The public thinks of chiropractic for back pain by and large.

  • 33% of 27,810 people chose chiropractors as their treating physician for low back pain in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. (NHANE) [in Deyo R: Spine 12(3)]
  • Spine care delivery is 60% by the medical model and 40% by the chiropractic model. [Saal, Spine 22(14)]
  • The total number of US adults who went to a chiropractor increased 57% from 2000-2003. [Davis, Health Svcs Research 45(3)]
  • Paid costs for back pain care started with a chiropractor were 40% less than care started with a MD. [Liliedahl, JMPT 33(9)]

Chiropractic is reknown for its back pain care. Chiropractic has evidence-based technique to relieve and control back pain like Cox Technic.

The federally funded studies document Cox Technic Flexion-Distraction and Decompression's biomechanical effects on the spine as well as its clinical outcomes:

  • intradiscal pressure drops to as low as -192mm Hg in the lumbar spine
  • 28% widening of the area of the intervertebral canal
  • flexion distraction is superior in relieving pain due to radiculopathy (leg pain) compared to medical care. (Gudavalli, Euro Sp J 2006
  • 29 days and  12 visits are the averages for relief of low back pain when not taking into account specific conditions of back pain. [Cox, Topics in Clinical Chiropractic 1996, 3(3)]
  • 13.2 treatments is the average for relief of neck pain radiculopathy. [Schliesser, Kruse, JMPT 26(9)]

Back pain and chiropractic fit together. The chiropractic physician is skilled in the diagnosis, examination and treatment of back pain as well as its prevention with nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices. The chiropractic back pain research continues to evolve in support. Chiropractic physicians train specially to keep abreast of the latest research and Cox Technic treatment application in seminars. Back pain patients find Cox Technic physicians for their back pain relief when they search the referral directory of certified Cox Technic physicians.

Research leads the way in evidence-based care and in Cox Technic.

Contact Cox Technic if you have any questions.

Course to Recertify in Cox Technic Worthwhile

April 5, 2011 09:39 by juliecoxcid

Once every two years, certified chiropractic physicians in Cox Technic are asked to re-certify to remain listed as active in the referral directory. Attending a course or writing a case report for publication is all that is required.

A recent attendee to the Part I Orlando Cox Seminar for re-certification said this:

I am a Cox® certified doctor who has had the new [Cox7] table for over 4 years. I was amazed at how much I learned on improving my technique. If you have not returned to Cox Seminars in a while, you will be impressed by how much you will learn in areas you thought you had mastered. As you all know Dr Jim doesn't not sit still, and the research is constantly getting better.

Cox Technic strives to keep on top of the most recently published medical research as well as keep in tune with the on-going federally funded and other funded research in chiropractic. In just the past 6 weeks, new information from the laboratory has been shared in the lectures. So exciting!

Consider a Cox Technic course soon. The calendar offers courses Part I, II and III around the country: Boston, St. Louis, San Diego, Nashville, Chicago and more.

  • Part I - introductory, non-disc related conditions, biomechanics, examination, diagnosis, step-by-step instructor-guided hands-on application
  • Part II - continuation of Part I principles with more emphasis on the disc-related conditions, Dr. Gudavalli presents the latest in Cox Technic (flexion-distraction) resesarch and allows time for each participant to use the pressure transducer to measure his or her application of proper pressures
  • Part III - Open to anyone to attend, Part III features Cox Technic in the clinic, in the research realm, in the healthcare community. Dr. Cox and Dr. Gudavalli present the latest information and research. Clinical case reports are presented by Dr. Cox as well as certified doctors. Unique practice situations are discussed (interdisciplinary clinics, military integration, hospital integration, etc): how they came about, if the situtations were initiated by the chiropractor or just came about. Interesting and inspiring. 
Each weekend of Cox Seminars offers glimpses into the world of the chiropractic back pain specialist who implements Cox Technic successfully.
