Cox Technic Research At Loyola's Windy City Lab

November 29, 2011 14:49 by juliecoxcid

The Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory at the Loyola University Medical Center, endearingly known as the Windy City Lab, is a site of federally funded research into the biomechanical and clinical studies of flexion-distraction, the technique also known as Cox Technic developed by Dr. James M. Cox. The most current project involves the cervical spine.

At the Windy City Lab, Dr. Avinash G. Patwardhan directs a team of orthopaedic surgeons, engineers, medical researchers and statisticians whose publishing credits include over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals like Spine, J of Bone and Joint Surgery and the J of Biomechanics. It's quite impressive what this small but mighty team has accomplished.

Dr. Ram Gudavalli, chiropractic researcher from Palmer Research Center and director of the chiropractic clinicians and researchers in this particular project under the direction of Christine Goertz, DC, PhD, works closely with Dr. Patwardhan and his team. Consulting chiropractic clinicians who volunteer their time and travel to this project include

  • James M. Cox, DC, DACBR
  • George Joachim, DC, DACRB
  • Ralph Kruse, DC, DABCO
  • Robert Rowell, DC 
  • Michael Seidman, DC
  • Robert Vining, DC

Each time these researchers and clinicians assemble, excitement abounds at the ability to document what happens during this flexion distraction procedure and at the collaborative efforts of all involved.

Please check out the new website for Loyola's Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory, www.WindyCityLab.com. (Watch the image rotator on the homepage to see if you recognize the research team for this flexion distraction research project!)

Chiropractic Tops the Chart for Helping Back Pain

July 28, 2011 11:35 by juliecoxcid

A new Consumer Reports (Health) report shares that for back pain, people use a wide range of options to combat it. But chiropractic helps the highest percent of patients choosing it, 65% helped. But only 36% of people chose chiropractic. But the number one choice of low back pain sufferers is over-the-counter medication (58% of them choose this option.) which only helps 28% of them with pain relief. Interesting findings.

Chiropractic has its place in back pain relief. Chiropractic is recognized for back pain relief. Chiropractic needs to just tell more people that it treats back pain successfully. Chiropractic research continues to document its relief for back pain, just consider the federally funded and other studies on Cox Technic flexion distraction alone.

Chiropractic has a clear niche: back pain, spine pain, neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, musculoskeletal pain relief. Consumer Reports even confirms it!

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!

Cox Technic in the Care of FBSS (aka Post Surgical Continued Pain) - WEBINAR

June 28, 2011 23:18 by juliecoxcid

This is the second in the educational Cox Technic Webinar Series.

Dr. James Cox presents a webinar on the care of the post-surgical pain patient who has had spinal surgery and now has continued spinal pain. Widely known as the failed back surgical syndrome patient (FBSS for short), these post-surgical continued pain patients are demanding of chiropractic's conservative skill. Most patients have had a surgery - or several - and either don't want another surgery or can't have another surgery and want pain relief, any amount will do. These patients well appreciate the 50% or 80% or 90% (sometimes even 100%) relief they get under the Cox Technic chiropractor's care. Cox Technic protocols outline the protocols to follow in treating these patients who have hardware in their spines or not.

Join Dr. Cox for this discussion on July 13, 2011, at 12:30pm EST for his presentation in talk and imaging on the FBSS patient.

For more information and registration, please see http://www.coxtechnic.com/doctors/cox-technic-webinar-series.

The Cry for Chiropractic Grows - Canadian Spine Surgeons Only Want to See Surgical Candidates

May 17, 2011 13:14 by juliecoxcid

The Canadian healthcare system may demand waittimes for spinal surgery for months or years if emergency intervention is not required. This is a frustration for many patients and the spine surgeons. In the intervening time of pain that takes a patient to his or her physician who then refers him or her to a spine surgeon, many expensive tests like MRI are ordered which may reveal abnormalities that are not of that much consequence but distract the primary care doctor who sends the patient to a surgeon.

“As a screening tool for back pain,” Dr. [Hamilton] Hall said, “MRIs are worse than useless.” Amazingly, "$24-million [is spent] annually on unnecessary MRI and CT scans in Ontario alone."

He explains his frustration as a spine surgeon is seeing patients who don't need his care - which is like 90 out of every 100 patients with back pain. He wants patients who need surgery.

Chiropractic can benefit this problem. Chiropractic physicians can diagnose and treat the 90% of patients who don't need surgery and send the surgical patients to the spine surgeons. Plus chiropractic offers this care at a lower price without always needing the expensive imaging tests for care.

For more details on the Canadian situation, please see the article Canada's Costly Spine Surgeon Backlog. Consider these chiropractic documents that show chiropractic to be

  • less expensive than medical care (cost of treatment, hospitalization, compensation payments, lost workdays)  - Phelan
  • effective in 29 days and 12 visits for low back pain - Cox
  • effective in 13.2 visits for cervical spine - Schliesser/Kruse
  • 40% less expensive when care for back pain is started with a chiropractor than a medical doctor - Liliedahl

Chiropractic has a place in healthcare to help patients and the cost of helping patients.

Consider The Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for back pain relief. As a doctor, come to a Cox seminar to learn more. As a patient, consult with a local certified chiropractor for your back pain relief.
