Severna Park Chiropractic Care May Better for Vertebral Fractures than Vertebroplasty

Back And Neck Care Center suggests curcumin for pain reduction and Severna Park conservative care for vertebral fractures instead of vertebroplasty.

NO VERTEBROPLASTY FOR VERTEBRAL FRACTURE

Severna Park Chiropractic Option for Conservative Care

Painful osteoporotic vertebral fractures occur in the vertebral bones of the spine. Often brought on by a fall or injury, a Severna Park vertebral fracture (compression fracture) happens when a vertebra – a bone of the spine - will fall in on itself, resulting in the bone to reduce in size.  Researchers and doctors found a method to “fix” these vertebral fractures by adding a cement type compound into the collapsed bone to return it to normal size again. This procedure is known as vertebroplasty. It made sense. However, a recent Cochrane Review study of the outcomes over many years reveal that high- to moderate-quality evidence shows no important benefit of vertebroplasty for acute or subacute osteoporotic vertebral fractures and cautions of its capability to harm. Adverse side-effects from vertebroplasty include osteomyelitis, cord compression, thecal sac injury and respiratory failure. (1) How might chiropractic care conservatively handle a vertebral compression fracture? Consult your Severna Park chiropractor. The suitable time after injury to add gentle Cox® Technic to the treatment plan for a vertebral fracture (typically around 6 weeks with careful tolerance testing) will be determined. In the meantime, there are conservative options like bracing, good posture (with even a little extension), pain medications, etc., to lessen the pain.

Pain-relieving curcumin may be a good addition to the Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan.  

 
TIP OF THE MONTH: Try Curcumin!

Curcumin is a plant-derived natural compound from the rhizome of the turmeric (curcuma longa) plant. It is effective for treating and preventing any number of diseases, particularly age-associated ones like cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic inflammation and infection. (2) What an amazing polyphenol! It is even shown to be superior to corticosteroids for reducing inflammation and to be beneficial alone and/or in combination with antibiotics for being antibacterial. (3,4) With so many outstanding benefits, curcumin may be a great addition to your nutrition routine. Let’s talk about it at your next Severna Park chiropractic visit at Back And Neck Care Center!
