Pflugerville 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 alone are painful and often considered surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling, painful condition and many times thought to be a surgical issue requiring fusion. Bring these two conditions together in in one patient and the Pflugerville chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Pflugerville chiropractor face 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 – detailed how just 9 visits in 4 weeks brought about pain relief. The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. At 10 years follow-up, the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or neurological issues and reported no recurrence of the original symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

Pflugerville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

Feed the gut. Lose some weight and increase your bone density to improve your spine. Reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Have an apple! Apples are very healthy! They have hardly any calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes 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 round out a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
