MUSCLE WEAKNESS RESPONDS BETTER TO Fort Wayne NON-SURGICAL
Compression of the lumbar spine nerve root may trigger pain and/or weakness for patients
with spinal stenosis and disc herniation. Younger patients are more likely
to respond more quickly to both surgical and non-surgical care.
(1) That’s logical as the nerve has not been irritated
as long. Disc herniations are more likely to occur
in our 30’s and 50’s. Fortunately, only 3% to 6% of those
are symptomatic. Spinal stenosis tends to bother us in our 50’s and 60’s. Muscle weakness is found in as
many as 30% to 50% of disc herniation patients.
80% of disc herniation patients with weakness demonstrate
improvement with 6 weeks of non-operative care, 90% at 12 weeks,
93% at 24 weeks. Surgical patients discover
that the most clinically significant weakness improvement happened
within 6 weeks of spine surgery for a disc herniation. 66% of these patients showed no
improvement after that. (Ghahreman in 1) Motor
power improvement can occur over the following two years post
surgery. Some sensory loss is typical but hardly noticeable. (1) BONUS: The cost of chiropractic care for
a lumbar disc herniation only accounted for 2% of all the money
spent, so the researchers urged a trial of conservative,
non-operative care before choosing back surgery for disc herniation. (2) Bring your Fort Wayne back pain and related muscle weakness to Aaron Chiropractic Clinic

Fort Wayne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin C For Osteoporosis Bone Loss Prevention
Maintaining strong bones is
important, and vitamin C can help! Osteoclasts are
bone cells that decay bone tissue. Vitamin C prevents
them from doing that. Osteoblasts are cells that connect bone while
bone takes shape. Vitamin C promotes bone
regeneration by promoting osteoblast creation.
(3) Fruits and vegetables are excellent sources of vitamin C. They are packed with antioxidants known to influence bone
quality. In a new report, vitamin C increased
the density of the L5 vertebra! (4) That’s a benefit your Fort Wayne spine specialist loves to
hear! Get your vitamin C every day! Eat, or
