Your Fort Wayne chiropractic spinal pain doctor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc implements the test(s) that are most useful to “see’’ the spine best to create the best treatment plan for treatment and relief.


Chiropractors as well as general practitioners and other healthcare providers must be on the look out for all types of underlying causes of back pain from fractures, infections, tumors, radiculopathy, axial spondylarthritis, and extravertebral causes. These may call for imaging, lab tests, etc., to help identify. 20% of back pain bouts may have these kinds of underlying issues that really should be found in a timely manner. (1) Sometimes, knee osteoarthritis and lumbar spondylosis come together in the same patient. Having one or the other issue significantly increased the odds of having the other. (2) Though they’re not likely in your vocabulary, they are in your chiropractor’s! Schmorl’s nodes. Seen on imaging, these are noted in 33% of low back pain patients and in only 11.5% of asymptomatic subjects. Body weight seems to influence the number of these seen on imaging. (3) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is well-versed in looking for all of these and more issues.


Reduced balance capability could possibly impact recovery from low back pain.
