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.

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.

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.
