July 2020 Healthy News from Aaron Chiropractic Clinic: Manipulation Effective for Pain after Back Surgery; B Vitamins for Inflammation and Osteoporosis

Fort Wayne 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 Fort Wayne back pain sufferers seeking pain relief. For paitents whose pain persists despite the lumbar fusion back surgery, hope still exists with chiropractic care. Two new research papers discussed the prominent choice of distraction manipulation for the resurgent, post-surgical continued back pain after lumbar fusion back surgery. One article reviewed Veterans’ Administration chiropractors who treated these patients. Many provided 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 reached maximum treatment benefit in 12 or fewer chiropractic treatments. (1) One 42-year-old post-lumbar fusion patient who underwent 12 sessions of spinal manipulation and exercise was asymptomatic, reported an 89% improvement in disability, and stable at 3 months. (2) And a third paper recounted that, though diversified manipulation was used for most back pain conditions, flexion distraction was used prominently 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 require a more gentle and effective treatment approach. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic chooses to use it for relief of Fort Wayne back pain.

Fort Wayne OSTEOPOROSIS: HOMOCYSTEINE, B12, FOLATE, AND INFLAMMATION

Numerous issues come into play with osteoporosis and its prevention. Recent research points out a significant association among homocysteine, bone mineral density (BMD) and inflammation in women with osteoporosis who are postmenopausal. 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 causal factors. (4) With this knowledge, we can talk about these levels and how to adjust them if needed.
