Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs by themselves
are painful and often deemed surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling,
painful condition and often thought to be a surgical
issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Richmond
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Richmond
chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for
gentle, skilled care. A recently published case
report of a patient with an extruded disc – one that
has escaped its outer bands and entered into the spinal canal space
– and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving
separation of the pars interarticularis – detailed how just
9 visits in a month brought about pain relief.
The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on the
ninth visit. Follow-up at 10 years revealed that the patient had no orthopedic or
neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management, the same care used at our
chiropractic clinic. Johnson Chiropractic embraces challenging
Richmond back pain cases like this!

back pain specialist, Dr. Casey Bearden on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr.
Michael Johnson as he shared how spondylolisthesis with

the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, loads of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving features
to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may lower blood pressure,
cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round
