Relief for Post-Surgical Continued Back Pain with Cox
Back surgery offers a range of relief for back pain
patients: 49-58% for lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica. (1) After back
surgery, many still find that they have back pain. (2) Could this be why spinal manipulation is
recommended by the American Pain Society and the American College Of Physicians
for primary care of low back pain? (3)
This is where Richmond chiropractic care with Cox Technic plays a
role. In a recent clinical data collection study, 81% of patients show 50%
reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients show
continued pain relief at 24 months after care. (4) Cox Technic is the gentle,
well-researched chiropractic technique Johnson Chiropractic chooses to use. For more
information, Johnson Chiropractic invites you to listen to this podcast
in which Dr. Cox, the developer of Cox Technic, as he shares more about Cox
Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation.
Make A New Spine? Yes!
Amazing what technology is allowing us to do today! For back
pain specialists like chiropractors and their back pain patients, it’s quite
intriguing. 3D printing technology is creating custom-designed intervertebral
discs as well as the tissues to support such replacements in the spine. (5) Johnson Chiropractic
looks forward to seeing the outcomes of these new technologies in 5 and 10
years. Along with our Richmond chiropractic patients, Johnson Chiropractic
wonders if there will still be some post-surgical continued pain after these
replacement surgeries. Good question. In the meantime, Johnson Chiropractic offers Richmond
chiropractic care for neck pain and back pain due to spinal discs for non-surgical pain
