July 2020 Healthy News from Back And Neck Care Center: Manipulation Effective for Pain after Back Surgery; B Vitamins for Inflammation and Osteoporosis

Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation helps post-surgical continued back pain patients discover relief of their pain despite fusion.  

DISTRACTION MANIPULATION FOR BACK PAIN AFTER LUMBAR FUSION SURGERY

A spinal fusion surgery is a considerable surgical option, one often quite welcomed by Severna Park back pain sufferers wanting pain relief. For paitents whose pain continues despite the back surgery with lumbar fusion, hope continues with chiropractic care. Two new research papers discussed the apparent choice of distraction manipulation for the resurgent, post-surgical continued back pain following lumbar fusion back surgery. One report reviewed Veterans’ Administration chiropractors who took care of these patients. Many furnished healthy lifestyle advice, pain education, exercise, stretching and soft tissue therapy. When it came to manipulation, these chiropractors relayed that they incorporated spinal mobilization and flexion distraction manipulation on an “always” or “frequent” basis. 93.5% of patients got maximum treatment benefit in 12 or fewer chiropractic treatments. (1) One 42-year-old post-lumbar fusion patient treated with 12 visits of spinal manipulation and exercise was asymptomatic, showed an 89% improvement in disability, and stable at 3 months. (2) And a third paper reported that, though diversified manipulation was performed for the majority of back pain conditions, flexion distraction was delivered notably for treatment of lumbar disc syndrome with radiculopathy and lumbar stenosis. (3) Cox® Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation is continually chosen for back pain conditions like post-spinal-fusion-surgery that necessitate a more gentle and effective treatment approach. Back And Neck Care Center chooses to use it for relief of Severna Park back pain.

Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: 
Severna Park OSTEOPOROSIS: HOMOCYSTEINE, B12, FOLATE, AND INFLAMMATION

Numerous issues come into play with osteoporosis and its prevention. Current research indicates a significant association among homocysteine, bone mineral density (BMD) and inflammation in postmenopausal osteoporosis. Low BMD was accompanied by lower levels of B12, vitamin D, bone formation markers, and folate. Higher levels of homocysteine, inflammation, bone resorption markers, and presence of C677T polymorphism were associated with low BMD. Homocysteine production is a risk factor for inflammatory disease. It is regulated by methylenetratrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) activity with vitamin B12 and folate as contributing factors. (4) With this in mind, we can discuss these levels and their adjustment if needed.
