September 2020 Healthy News from Vancouver Spine Care Centre: Cox Technic Relieves Back Pain due to Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis and Eat an Apple!

Vancouver 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 alone are painful and many times considered surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone is a disabling, painful condition and many times considered a surgical issue necessitating fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Vancouver chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Vancouver chiropractor encounter a challenge that demands gentle, skilled 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 – described how just 9 visits in a month 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 10 years revealed that the patient had no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the original symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan? The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, the same care delivered at our chiropractic clinic. Vancouver Spine Care Centre embraces challenging Vancouver 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 presented how spondylolisthesis with disc bulges positively responded to his treatment using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

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

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Delight in This Apple Season!

Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise your bone density to help your spine. Reduce your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Protect the brain. How? Have an apple! Apples are amazingly healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that feeds the good gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, 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!
