Vancouver's Dr. Richard Hunter practices at one of the 20 chiropractic clinics joining Dr. James Cox in gathering data on how flexion distraction and decompression Cox Technic helps these patients. Recent published reports by Kruse and Cambron (one on 32 cases and one case report on one post surgical continued pain patient) share how Cox Technic relieved this post surgical pain in these patients who had undergone back surgery but have pain still. These papers are good starts. This next step is gathering information from many chiropractic offices caring for patients similarly and analyzing this data.
Dr. Cox set this study up with assistance from statisticians at Purdue University and input from Dr. Ram Gudavalli. Twenty clinics in US and Canada are participating. They are letting their communities know that they are doing this collection study as well, and Dr. Hunter shared this information with Dr. Don Nixdorf who hosts a radio show in Vancouver called the "Dr. Don Show" as well as the executive director of the British Columbia Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Don invited Dr. Hunter and Dr. Cox to join him to discuss chiropractic and its care of the post surgical continued pain patient. They talked for about an hour. To hear and watch their interaction, please check out this podcast video shared by the "Dr. Don Show" and 630am.
