September 2020 Healthy News from Soft Health and Healing Clinic: Cox Technic Eases Back Pain due to Disc Extrusion with Spondylolytic Spondylolisthesis and Eat an Apple!

Brooks 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 believed to be surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone 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 Brooks chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Brooks chiropractor face a challenge that calls for 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 resulted in pain relief. The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being 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? The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management, the same care delivered at our chiropractic clinic. Soft Health and Healing Clinic welcomes challenging Brooks 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 responded to his treatment utilizing the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

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

Brooks 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? Eat an apple! Apples are amazingly 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, lots of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, acetylcholine-level-preserving features 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!
