Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs alone
are painful and many times deemed surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling,
painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical
issue needing fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Sitka
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Sitka
chiropractor face a challenge that calls for
gentle, skilled 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 – detailed how just
9 visits in 4 weeks resulted in pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being
the worst pain) on the first visit 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 reported no recurrence of the earlier
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of

Apples are amazingly healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good
gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to make you
feel full, loads of polyphenols
in the peel which are antioxidant, acetylcholine-level-preserving features
to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may reduce blood pressure,
