New Research - Perna Canaliculus Reduces Gastrointestinal Dysfunction

March 22, 2012 10:32 by juliecoxcid

Since the early days of his chiropractic career, Dr. James Cox has studied the nutrition of the disc right alongside all the biomechanical influences and clinical treatment approaches. Nutrition of the disc is important! Building cartilage, reducing inflammation, slowing degeneration and regenerating cartilage are positive outcomes for lower back pain patients. So he developed Discat Plus for his patients as part of the Cox Technic System for Spinal Pain Management.

Discat Plus has glucosamine sulfate plus the minerals found in the disc, but it also uses perna canaliculus as the source for the chondroitin sulfate. Perna Canaliculus is so beneficial! It is reported in the medical literature studies to improve cartilage (like knee and disc) mobility, pain and stiffness. A new report just coming out discusses perna's positive effect on gastrointestinal dysfunction (in 49% of osteoarthritis patients), too! Back and neck pain sufferers benefit as well as osteoarthritis sufferers.

Check out more information, an audio discussion about disc nutrition by Dr. Cox, and more details about the ingredients in Discat Plus to benefit the disc's cartilage alongside the  flexion distraction chiropractic spinal manipulation adjustment!

Cox Seminars Teach Evidence Based Protocols

March 21, 2012 16:34 by juliecoxcid

European Spine Journal. Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. Journal of Chiropractic Medicine. Osteopathy and Chiropractic. Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Topics in Clinical Chiropractic.

Cox Technic Flexion Distraction protocols are safe and well-studiedpublished and ready for duplication and application in your practice as well as scrutiny in the literature. Chiropractic journals offer much to the chiropractic profession to share what it does, the research behind it, the documentation of its results.

Cox Technic for nearly half a century under the influence of Dr. James Cox, its developer, is researched and documented. Chiropractors are encouraged to publish their outcomes with Cox Technic spinal manipulation. Researchers are awarded federal and other grant funds to study the biomechanics and clinical aspects of Cox Technic. Loyola Stritch School of Medicine's Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory is even involved. 

It's important then to offer an outlet to all physicians to hear first hand the outcomes and published clinical findings as well as experience and finetune the proper application of the evidence-based protocols so that the clinical outcomes may be similar across the board.

So Cox Seminars are the outlets for this sharing of technique and research for clinical application. Join a Cox Seminar in Orlando (March 24-25), Toronto (April 21-22) or Portland ME (May 5-6) to get the support you desire for your chiropractic practice. Taught by clinicians who use Cox Technic day in and day out in their practices and who participate in clinical and federally funded research who talk to you in daily practice language, Cox Seminars are practical, exciting you for your Monday morning practice.

Register for a course today. Or contact us by phone (800-441-5571) or email. We look forward to seeing you!

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.

Post Surgical Continued Back Pain - Chiropractic Help

February 14, 2012 20:10 by juliecoxcid

Vancouver's Dr. Richard Hunter practices at one of the 20 chiropractic clinics joining Dr. James Cox in gathering data on how flexion distraction and decompression Cox Technic helps these patients. Recent published reports by Kruse and Cambron (one on 32 cases and one case report on one post surgical continued pain patient) share how Cox Technic relieved this post surgical pain in these patients who had undergone back surgery but have pain still. These papers are good starts. This next step is gathering information from many chiropractic offices caring for patients similarly and analyzing this data.

Dr. Cox set this study up with assistance from statisticians at Purdue University and input from Dr. Ram Gudavalli. Twenty clinics in US and Canada are participating. They are letting their communities know that they are doing this collection study as well, and Dr. Hunter shared this information with Dr. Don Nixdorf who hosts a radio show in Vancouver called the "Dr. Don Show" as well as the executive director of the British Columbia Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Don invited Dr. Hunter and Dr. Cox to join him to discuss chiropractic and its care of the post surgical continued pain patient. They talked for about an hour. To hear and watch their interaction, please check out this podcast video shared by the "Dr. Don Show" and 630am.

If you are a patient seeking care for post surgical continued pain, consult a local certified Cox Technic doctor.

If you are a physician seeking more information on the Cox Technic System of protocols for spine pain relief, please contact us or check information on our seminars. You may even want to watch the FBSS webinar in which Dr. Cox presents statistics on back surgery outcomes as well as options and how Cox Technic protocols may be applied to the spine.

Certified Doctors Invited to Present Cases at Part III Courses

January 18, 2012 23:20 by juliecoxcid

Calling all certified Cox Technic physicians! Consider presenting a case at Part III Cox Seminar when you come. It doesn't take that much to prepare a 10 minutes case. Snap a picture here and there of the xrays or MRIs with your digital camera, even the patient's spine if it's of interest. Share the history, examination and diagnosis. Describe your flexion distraction treatment and its clinical outcomes. It's fun! These cases are the most exciting part of the Part III weekends anymore!

Join Dr. Cox and Dr. Gudavalli (at most of them) and share your clinical experiences. Dr. Cox will give you all the latest spinal research publications that impact your practice and share a few cases of his own. But everyone knows he has cases. This is your chance to share your clinical cases.

Let Julie know if you are willing to do this. Send your powerpoint to her 3 weeks prior so she can make notes. Then just be ready to share at a Cox® chiropractic continuing education seminar!

Dates and registration are online. Contact Julie at juliecoxcid@coxtechnic.com if you have any questions!
