Vancouver Spine Care Centre Treats Back, Neck, Arm and Leg Pain

What should you consider for treatment of your spine and/or extremity pain, your back and leg pain, your neck and arm pain? When you suffer these conditions, this question is forefront in your mind. Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses the well-documented, non-surgical, safe and gentle Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management as a response to that question.

BACK SURGERY

First, let’s talk about back surgery. Less than 1% of people with low back, neck, and/or leg and arm pain have spine surgery. (1,2) That means 99% of people with back and extremity pain will be treated non-surgically. This type of care is the forte of your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre. What is the potential of such non-surgical treatment as Cox® Distraction Spine Manipulation to benefit you?

THE COX® FLEXION DISTRACTION OPTION

Flexion distraction spine manipulation is reported to be a good intervention for enhancing disc height loss in disc herniation patients. (3) Another study found 50% pain relief following distraction spine manipulation in patients with low back pain. (4) Cox® distraction mixed with therapeutic modalities over a 4-week treatment period for patients with lumbar disc herniation gave significant improvement in muscle strength, disability, and relief of sciatica. The entire treatment entailed 18 visits in a month of care. Cox® distraction manipulation appears to be a safe and efficacious non-invasive treatment for patients with lumbar disc herniation. (5) Safety is always forefront of care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre.

SAFETY OF COX® TECHNIC

The study of safety of spine manipulation demonstrates that chiropractic students learn proper delivery of force in giving Cox® manipulation to patients. (6) Just as a patient seeking surgical treatment for spine pain looks for the best surgeon, studies confirm that patients with a high possibility of having surgery are best matched with a non-surgical spine specialist. (7) Certified Cox® chiropractors like your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre are trained and then examined by written and hands-on testing prior to being certified in Cox® distraction manipulation.

CLINICAL EXAM IMPORTANT IN THE COX® TECHNIC SYSTEM

Last of all, understand that the clinical examination of your spine is just as and even more important than any MRI findings. (8) Cox® certified doctors of chiropractic like your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Spine Care Centre are well-versed and tested in the orthopedic and neurological indicators of spine and extremity pain patients.
