Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 suffer these conditions, this question is forefront in your mind. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 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 strength of your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. What is the potential of such non-surgical treatment as Cox® Distraction Spine Manipulation to help 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 after distraction spine manipulation in patients with low back pain. (4) Cox® distraction combined with therapeutic modalities over a month for patients with lumbar disc herniation gave significant improvement in muscle strength, disability, and relief of sciatica. The entire treatment consisted of 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 is always forefront of care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.

SAFETY OF COX® TECHNIC

The study of safety of spine manipulation demonstrates that chiropractic students learn proper delivery of force in delivering 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 an elevated likelihood of having surgery are optimally matched with a non-surgical spine specialist. (7) Certified Cox® chiropractors like your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation are trained and then examined by written and hands-on testing before being certified in Cox® distraction manipulation.

CLINICAL EXAM IMPORTANT IN THE COX® TECHNIC SYSTEM

Last of all, be informed that the clinical examination of your spine is equally as and even more valuable than any MRI findings. (8) Cox® certified doctors of chiropractic like your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation are most learned and tested in the neuro and ortho findings of spine and extremity pain patients. The thorough clinical examination establishes the treatment path to your wanted pain relief.
