September 2020 Healthy News from Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation: Cox Technic Eases Back Pain due to Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis and Eat an Apple!

Carrolltown chiropractic care with Cox Technic relieves 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 considered surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling, painful condition and often considered a surgical issue necessitating fusion. Bring these two conditions together in in one patient and the Carrolltown chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Carrolltown chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for gentle, skilled care. A newly published case report of a patient with a disc extrusionone that has escaped its outer bands and settled into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – detailed how just 9 visits in 4 weeks resulted in pain relief. The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. At ten years follow-up, the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the earlier symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

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