Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs alone
are painful and many times believed to be surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling,
painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical
issue necessitating fusion. Bring these two conditions
together in in a single patient and the Manchester
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Manchester
chiropractor face a challenge that demands
gentle, experienced care. A newly published case
report of a patient with a disc extrusion – one that
has escaped its outer bands and settled into the spinal canal space
– and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving
separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just
9 visits in 4 weeks brought about pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on the
ninth visit. At ten
years follow-up, the patient showed no orthopedic or
neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of
