Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs alone
are painful and many times considered surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling,
painful condition and many times considered a surgical
issue necessitating fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Vancouver
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Vancouver
chiropractor encounter a challenge that demands
gentle, skilled care. A recently published case
report of a patient with an extruded disc – 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 a month brought about pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being
the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. Follow-up at 10 years revealed that the patient had no orthopedic or
neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the original
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management, the same care delivered at our
chiropractic clinic. Vancouver Spine Care Centre embraces challenging
Vancouver back pain cases like this!
Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic
back pain specialist, Dr. Casey Bearden on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr.
Michael Johnson as he presented how spondylolisthesis with
disc bulges positively responded to his treatment using
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Delight in This Apple
Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise your
bone density to help your spine. Reduce your risk of
diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Have an apple!
Apples are amazingly healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good
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
