Cox® Technic Delivers Back Pain
Relief for a Challenging Case: Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic
Extruded discs by themselves
are painful and many times believed to be surgical
issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling,
painful condition and many times considered a surgical
issue requiring fusion. Bring these two conditions
together in in one patient and the McHenry
chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your McHenry
chiropractor encounter a challenge that demands
gentle, skilled care. A newly published case
report of a patient with a disc extrusion – one 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 4 weeks resulted in pain relief.
The patient who rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating
the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on the
ninth visit. At 10
years follow-up, the patient showed no orthopedic or
neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the original
symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of
Spinal Pain Management, the same care used at our
chiropractic clinic. Spengel Chiropractic embraces challenging
McHenry 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 shared how spondylolisthesis with
disc bulges positively reacted to his treatment using
the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
TIP OF THE MONTH:
Enjoy This Apple
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 very healthy! They have hardly
any calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good
gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, lots 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!
