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 many times considered a surgical issue requiring fusion. Combine the two of these in a single patient and the Nashua chiropractic patient and the treating physician like your Nashua chiropractor encounter a challenge that calls for gentle, skilled care. A recently published case report of a patient with an extruded disc – one that has escaped its outer bands and entered into the spinal canal space – and spondylolytic spondylolisthesis – involving separation of the pars interarticularis – described how just 9 visits in 4 weeks brought about pain relief. The patient who ranked his pain a 9 out of 10 (a 10 indicating 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 had no orthopedic or neurological issues and recounted no recurrence of the earlier symptoms. (1) What was the treatment plan?

Nashua 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 extraordinarily healthy! They have few calories, good pre-biotic pectin that nourishes the good gut bacteria, plenty of fiber and water to make you feel full, lots of polyphenols in the peel which are antioxidant, 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 supplement a healthy chiropractic approach to life!
