September 2020 Healthy News from Palmer Chiropractic Center: Cox Technic Relieves Back Pain due to Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis and Eat an Apple!

Lynchburg chiropractic care with Cox Technic alleviates back pain due to a painful combination of a disc extrusion and a spondylolytic spondylolisthesis.

 
Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis

Extruded discs by themselves are painful and many times considered surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling, painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical issue necessitating fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Lynchburg chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Lynchburg chiropractor face a challenge that calls for gentle, skilled care. A recently published case report of a patient with an extruded discone that has escaped its outer bands and entered into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just 9 visits in 4 weeks resulted in pain relief. The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. Follow-up at 10 years revealed that the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the original symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, the same care delivered at our chiropractic clinic. Palmer Chiropractic Center welcomes challenging Lynchburg back pain cases like this!

Listen to this PODCAST with chiropractic back pain specialist, Dr. Casey Bearden on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he presented how spondylolisthesis with disc bulges positively responded to his treatment using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

Lynchburg chiropractic care recommends healthy diets full of fruits and veggies, so enjoy an apple the apple season! 

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise your bone density to improve your spine. Reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Eat an apple! Apples are extraordinarily healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to make you feel full, lots of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving features to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round out a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
