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

Ashburn 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 often believed to be 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 one patient and the Ashburn chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Ashburn chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for gentle, experienced 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 – 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 indicating the worst pain) on visit 1 rated it 0 out of 10 on visit 9. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient showed no orthopedic or neurological issues and reported 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. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn invites challenging Ashburn 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 using the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.

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

Ashburn 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 hardly any calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good gut bacteria, lots of fiber and water to fill you up, loads of polyphenols in the peel which are antioxidant, 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!
