Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs by themselves
are painful and many times deemed surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling,
painful condition and many times considered a surgical
issue necessitating fusion. Bring these two conditions
together in in a single patient and the Eugene
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Eugene
chiropractor face a challenge that calls for
gentle, skilled care. A newly 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 4 weeks resulted in pain relief.
The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. At 10
years follow-up, the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or
neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the earlier
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of

gut bacteria, lots of fiber and water to make you
feel full, loads of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving factors
to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may reduce blood pressure,
cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round
