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

Eugene 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 many times deemed surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling, painful condition and many times considered a surgical issue necessitating fusion. Bring these two conditions together in in a single patient and the Eugene chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Eugene chiropractor face a challenge that calls for gentle, skilled care. A newly 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 4 weeks resulted in pain relief. The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the earlier symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

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

Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

Feed the gut. Lose some weight and increase your bone density to improve your spine. Lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Eat an apple! Apples are very healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good gut bacteria, lots of fiber and water to make you feel full, loads 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!
