Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care May Better for Vertebral Fractures than Vertebroplasty

Aaron Chiropractic Clinic suggests curcumin for pain reduction and Fort Wayne conservative care for vertebral fractures instead of vertebroplasty.

NO VERTEBROPLASTY FOR VERTEBRAL FRACTURE

Fort Wayne Chiropractic Option for Conservative Care

Osteoporotic vertebral fractures hurt. Often precipitated by a fall or injury, a Fort Wayne vertebral fracture (compression fracture) occurs when a vertebra – a bone of the spine - will collapse on itself, causing the bone to reduce in size.  Researchers and doctors discovered a method to “fix” these vertebral fractures by inserting a cement type compound into the collapsed bone to return it to normal size again. This procedure is called vertebroplasty. It made sense. However, a recent Cochrane Review study of results over numerous years reveal that high- to moderate-quality evidence discloses no important benefit of vertebroplasty for acute or subacute osteoporotic vertebral fractures and warns of its capability to harm. Undesirable side-effects from vertebroplasty include osteomyelitis, cord compression, thecal sac injury and respiratory failure. (1) How might chiropractic care conservatively manage a vertebral compression fracture? Consult your Fort Wayne chiropractor. The appropriate time after injury to include gentle Cox® Technic to the treatment plan for a vertebral fracture (typically around 6 weeks with careful tolerance testing) will be decided. In the interim, there are conservative options like bracing, good posture (with even a little extension), pain medications, etc., to ease the pain.

Pain-relieving curcumin may be a good addition to the Fort Wayne 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 valuable for treating and preventing any number of diseases, especially 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 dropping inflammation and to be beneficial alone and/or in combination with antibiotics for being antibacterial. (3,4) With so many amazing benefits, curcumin may be a great addition to your nutrition routine. Let’s talk about it at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic visit at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic!
