War Veterans Suffering Back Pain and Leg Pain Like Never Before

March 15, 2012 10:41 by juliecoxcid

An eye-opening article in the Houston Press reports on the veterans coming home from wars in the Middle East, suffering with back pain and sciatica.

Back packs of 80 and 90 and 100 plus pounds that must be carried by on their backs plus the body armor of 30 to 40 pounds is being discussed as a culprit. Amazing that airport baggage over 50 pounds is considered too heavy and charged a surplus fee. Shipping companies charge extra for heavier loads, too. Military men and women carry these heavy loads daily and jump in and out of vehicles according to this article. No wonder lower back pain and leg pain (sciatica) is an issue.

The Veterans Administration does what it can. It seems that a suggestion was bantered around for a "back pain management clinic" to be added to all VA Hospitals. That didn't happen. Chiropractic is supposed to be available in all the VA Hospitals. It's coming slowly, it seems, but has never been in more demand. Chiropractic's non-surgical and non-drug approach may certainly meet the demand because these veterans don't want to take drugs and have surgery if they don't have to. Cox Technic may be the successful back surgery alternative for them.

Cox Technic is poised ready with certified and otherwise trained physicians to meet the demand for back pain relief for US veterans. A few bases even have Cox Tables and physicians on staff who treat the veterans with back pain, and these docs are busy.

We wish our veterans safety, thank them for their service, and hope more of them get access to chiropractic and even Cox Technic Flexion Distraction Spinal Manipulation care for their back pain.

NEW - Page added to LOW BACK AND LEG PAIN Booklet for FBSS Patients

March 5, 2012 19:40 by juliecoxcid

We have added a new page on Post Surgical Continued Pain (aka FBSS) Lower Back Pain Relief with Cox Technic. Today's chiropractic practices are seeing so many patients now who have already had back surgery of some sort. Cox Technic is a gentle, safe, documented means to relief for these post-surgical back pain patients. Two interesting articles on these patients come from Dr. Ralph Kruse and Dr. Jerrilyn Cambron: a case report of one patient and a review study of 32 FBSS patients.

Now is the time to tell patients what Cox Technic can do. A page description of the PSCP patient and positive outcomes with chiropractic care are highlighted.

Post surgical continued pain patients may have an opportunity for relief. Drs. Kruse and Cambron report on 32 cases of failed back surgery patients who continued to have pain after their back surgeries. Treated with Cox Technic flexion distraction, these patients found relief. 41% overall in patients who'd had back surgery. 57% in patients who'd had surgery with a fusion.

October 24, 2011 23:43 by juliecoxcid

The 7th edition of LOW BACK PAIN: Mechanism, Diagnosis, Treatment (published by Lippincott Williams and Wilkins under Wolters Kluwers) is nearly here. Years of reading the spinal literature and tracking it all go into this edition. Dr. James Cox leads the authorship of this textbook on low back pain with many contributing authors in their respective areas of expertise. Forewards written by Dr. Claire Johnson, editor of JMPT and JCM, Dr. Glenn Manceaux, past president of the American Chiropractic Association, Dr. Rudy Kachmann, neurosurgeon, Dr. Kim Lombardy, associate professor of the Medical College of Georgia, and Dr. William Meeker, president of Palmer College of Chiropractic West, open the text and the readers to what awaits them.

The first hardcopy arrived in Dr. Cox's hands last Friday. Nearly bringing tears to his eyes, this textbook represents a culmination of not just the past 12 years' worth of research but also but also all the effort to deliver the highest quality and current research on the biomechanics, diagnosis, examination and treatment of the low back pain epidemic. Today's back pain specialist will appreciate this textbook. Dr. Cox claims this will be the last book he'll author like this on the low back. We'll see!

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.

Back Pain Specialists Are In Demand!

September 26, 2011 10:32 by juliecoxcid

Have you heard about back pain lately? Friends? Family? Football players? Even politicians are having back pain.

Do you hear about surgery and drugs for back pain relief? Sure. Do you want drugs and surgery for back pain relief? No? Many people are with you there. If surgery can be avoided, many want to do that.

Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression Spinal Manipulation is a non-surgical back pain relief protocol. Its protocols seek a logical amount of relief in a logical amount of time - 50% relief in 30 days - or further tests or imaging studies or surgical consultations will be arranged. Many people experience  50% even 100% relief of pain in that time of 30 days or less (often less!). When you hurt, any % of pain is a relief.

Cox Technic protocols call for this time to heal as it takes time to drop intradiscal pressures to be below the 20mm that cause symptoms like back pain, leg pain, neck pain, arm pain. Hirschberg wrote that it takes 3 months for a disc to heal. Now he doesn't say that back pain continues through that whole time, but he does write that time of low intradiscal pressures and irritation are needed for back pain relief. Cox Technic respects that. You get pain relief and tips on how to control your back pain condition so your visits are limited.
