April 2019 Healthy News: Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care Improved Muscle Weakness and Vitamin C for Bone Health

 Fort Wayne chiropractic non-surgical care manytimes improves muscle weakness in back and leg pain patients.

MUSCLE WEAKNESS RESPONDS BETTER TO Fort Wayne NON-SURGICAL CARE

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.

 Aaron Chiropractic Clinic may recommend vitamin C to patients at risk of bone loss as it helps prevent bone loss. 

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 fostering 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 supplement! Let’s talk at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic appointment.
