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

Richmond 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 deemed surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis by itself is a disabling, painful condition and often thought to be a surgical issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Richmond chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Richmond chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for gentle, skilled care. A recently published case report of a patient with an extruded discone that has escaped its outer bands and entered into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – detailed how just 9 visits in a month 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 the ninth visit. At 10 years follow-up, 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. Johnson Chiropractic embraces challenging Richmond 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.

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

Richmond CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Delight in 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? Have an apple! Apples are amazingly healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes 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!
