Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: To discuss the outcome of a case series comprising 3 chiropractic patients presenting with severe low back pain accompanied by signs and symptoms characteristic of nerve root involvement.

Clinical Features: All patients presented with low back pain radiating into one or both legs. Setting: a private chiropractic practice in Victoria, Australia.

Methods: Retrospective evaluation of 3 patients who consulted a private chiropractic practice and were treated with Sacro-Occipital technique (SOT) Category III protocol and a novel coughing procedure.

Intervention and Outcome: Standard SOT protocol was used, in particular a Category III work-up with a coughing technique that achieved resolution of low back pain.

Conclusion: Some patients presenting with signs and symptoms of nerve root irritation due to intervertebral disc involvement might be effectively treated using SOT and coughing as a possible mechanism to decrease intrathecal impingement.
