Relief for Post-Surgical Continued Back Pain with Cox Technic

Back surgery offers a range of relief for back pain patients: 49-58% for lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica. (1) After back surgery, many still find that they have back pain. (2) Could this be why spinal manipulation is recommended by the American Pain Society and the American College Of Physicians for primary care of low back pain?  (3) This is where McHenry chiropractic care with Cox Technic plays a role. In a recent clinical data collection study, 81% of patients show 50% reduction of pain at the end of 3 months of care. 78.6% of those patients show continued pain relief at 24 months after care. (4) Cox Technic is the gentle, well-researched chiropractic technique OrthoIllinois Chiropractic chooses to use. For more information, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic invites you to listen to this podcast in which Dr. Cox, the developer of Cox Technic, as he shares more about Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation.


Make A New Spine? Yes!

Amazing what technology is allowing us to do today! For back pain specialists like chiropractors and their back pain patients, it’s quite intriguing. 3D printing technology is creating custom-designed intervertebral discs as well as the tissues to support such replacements in the spine. (5) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic looks forward to seeing the outcomes of these new technologies in 5 and 10 years. Along with our McHenry chiropractic patients, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wonders if there will still be some post-surgical continued pain after these replacement surgeries. Good question. In the meantime, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers McHenry chiropractic care for neck pain and back pain due to spinal discs for non-surgical pain relief.

Your Treatment Goals Are Best

The back pain and neck pain patient is really at the heart of clinical outcomes and goal setting for care. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic knows this and listens to what you desire in terms of relief. A new study documents that better patient outcomes are attained when the patient sets treatment outcome goals important to the patient. Chronic low back pain patients set goals about improving disability and pain and report improvements in their quality of life as well as pain. (6) Share what you want with OrthoIllinois Chiropractic as we step forward into this McHenry chiropractic journey toward back pain relief together.


Nutrition Plus Exercise Builds Skeletal Mass and Improves Daily

Resistance training and nutrition are shown again to be important influences on skeletal muscle mass. Feed the body, exercise the body, see a healthy body. It takes a multipronged approach to be strong and healthy. This approach even works in the elderly who are deconditioned. (7) McHenry chiropractic care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic approaches health similarly with a multipronged approach adding spinal manipulation to the mix. It works!
