This weekend is designed to bring together spine care providers from all fields who care for spinal stenosis sufferers experiencing a myriad of issues: back pain, neck pain, sciatic leg pain, arm pain, chronic pain, depression, incontinence, balance and gait issues, and more.
This interdisciplinary spine conference is Dr. James Cox's concept, a coming-together of spine care providers to discuss the growing incidence of spinal stenosis. Dr. Cox will open the conference with a discussion of the current status of research regarding spinal stenosis: its treatment options and outcomes. Throughout the conference, he’ll interject relevant clinical pearls and cases to share just how well interdisciplinary patient care optimizes patient clinical outcomes.
Dr. Cox invites spine care providers of all disciplines to join this exchange of ideas that can only benefit suffering patients with relief of pain due to spinal stenosis:
“Spinal stenosis is a common condition and the most common indicator of spine surgery in older patients. By the year 2025 estimated incidence of it will be 59%. Cooperative conservative and surgical treatments for its treatment are necessary. Patients are often unsure of best practices in its treatment. Therefore this conference is called to assemble and share the present best practices of the various branches of the healing arts, including orthopedic and neurological surgery, chiropractic spinal manipulation, psychology, spinal cord stimulators, physical therapy, and depression treatment.
“This interdisciplinary sharing of the indications and contraindications for each healing discipline is no longer just considered, it must be implemented. No healing art professional is not confronted by the need for better treatment protocols to address this epidemic condition. You are invited to share and learn from this futuristic conference.”
You will come away from the weekend knowing more about what your fellow spine care provider colleagues do and how you fit into the spinal stenosis treatment system for the benefit of your patients. And proceeds from the weekend will go to spinal research.
