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

McHenry 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 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 extrusionone 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.

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

McHenry 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 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!
