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

Sandy Springs 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 often believed to be surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling, painful condition and often thought to be a surgical issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Sandy Springs chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Sandy Springs chiropractor face a challenge that calls for gentle, experienced care. A recently published case report of a patient with an extruded discone that has escaped its outer bands and settled into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just 9 visits in a month brought about pain relief. The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on the ninth visit. Follow-up at 10 years revealed that the patient showed no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the original symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

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