OrthoIllinois Chiropractic Treats Back, Neck, Arm and Leg Pain

What treatment considerations should you think about for your spine and/or extremity pain, your back and leg pain, your neck and arm pain? When you experience these conditions, this question is forefront in your mind. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic presents the well-documented, non-surgical, safe and gentle Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management as a response to that question.


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


Flexion distraction spine manipulation is reported to be a good intervention for treating disc height loss in disc herniation patients. (3) Another study revealed 50% pain relief after distraction spine manipulation in patients with low back pain. (4) Cox® distraction combined 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 whole treatment entailed 18 visits over a 4-week period of care. Cox® distraction manipulation looks to be a safe and efficacious non-invasive treatment for patients with lumbar disc herniation. (5) Safety always leads care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.


The review of safety of spine manipulation explains that chiropractic students are taught correct delivery of force in giving Cox® manipulation to patients. (6) Similar to a patient seeking surgical treatment for spine pain looks for the best surgeon, studies confirm that patients with an elevated possibility of undergoing surgery are optimally partnered with a non-surgical spine specialist. (7) Certified Cox® practitioners like your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic are trained and then assessed by written and hands-on testing before being certified in Cox® distraction manipulation.


Lastly, be informed that the clinical examination of your spine is just as and even more valuable than any MRI findings. (8) Cox® certified doctors of chiropractic like your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic are well-versed and examined in the orthopedic and neurological findings of spine and extremity pain patients. The thorough clinical examination establishes the treatment path to your wanted pain relief.
