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

Colorado 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 by itself is a disabling, painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical issue necessitating fusion. Combine the two of these in one patient and the Colorado Springs chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Colorado Springs chiropractor encounter a challenge that demands 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 – detailed how just 9 visits in 4 weeks brought about 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. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient had no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, the same care used at our chiropractic clinic. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR invites challenging Colorado Springs 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.

Colorado Springs chiropractic care recommends healthy diets full of fruits and veggies, so enjoy an apple the apple season! 

Colorado Springs 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? Have an apple! Apples are extraordinarily healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to make you feel full, loads of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving features to protect the brain, and flavonoids that may lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and stroke risk. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) Apples round out a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
