West Des Moines 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 often considered surgical issues. Spondylolytic spondylolisthesis alone 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 West Des Moines chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your West Des Moines 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 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 rated his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 being the worst pain) on the first visit rated it 0 out of 10 on the ninth visit. Follow-up at ten years revealed that the patient demonstrated no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:

Enjoy This Apple Season!

Feed the gut. Lose some weight and raise 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 few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to fill you up, lots of antioxidant polyphenols in the peel, 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!
