September 2019 Healthy News: Chiropractic Help for Extruded Discs and Degenerated Discs & Knees

Degenerated discs and degenerated knees are not such strange bedfellows. They are seen to be related. Sandy Springs patients with a loss of disc height due to disc degeneration often also have knee pain related to degeneration.   

DEGENERATED DISCS AND KNEE PAIN REDUCE QUALITY OF LIFE; CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES IT

Degenerated discs and degenerated knees are not such strange-bedfellows. They are cases of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal disorders that are related to poorer quality of life for older folks. Concerns like low back pain, lumbar spinal stenosis, knee pain due to osteoarthritis, lessened lumbar lordosis (as seen on xray), and increased sagittal vertical alignment (visible on xray) influence a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are the most influential issues for patients having a lower quality of life. (1) Another report links the disc height of the L1/L2, L2/L3, and L3/L4 to knee pain with L2/L3 being the most strongly related. (2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is related! A degenerated knee may be connected to a degenerated disc. Cross Chiropractic Center understands the connection and is here to help.

Sandy Springs chiropractic care of extruded discs may benefit regression of them and improve your quality of life. 

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Extruded Discs May Regress!

Extruded discs - discs whose jellylike centers leak out – are apt to be a bit worrisome than disc bulges to their owners, but in a new study they regressed with conservative, non-surgical care! At about 17 months of care, 75% of extrusions completely resolved, 15% partially went away, and 10% did show any regression. 90% did! Additionally, those patients whose discs resolved also stated that they had significantly improved NRS pain scores, symptoms and disability issues. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center relieves pain from extruded discs! They don’t scare us!

Listen to this discussion about care of the disc extrusion with Cox® Technic on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as Dr. Ted Siciliano shares this case of a disc extrusion in a weight lifter he positively helped.
