September 2019 Healthy News: Chiropractic Help for Extruded Discs and Degenerated Discs & Knees

Degenerated discs and degenerated knees are not such unlikely companions. They are seen to be related. Malverne patients with a loss of disc height due to disc degeneration often also have knee pain related to degeneration.   

DEGENERATED DISCS AND KNEE PAIN REDUCE QUALITY OF LIFE; CHIROPRACTIC IMPROVES IT

Degenerated discs and degenerated knees are not such strange-bedfellows. They are cases of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal malalignment that are related to poorer quality of life for older folks. Problems like low back pain, lumbar spinal stenosis, knee pain because of osteoarthritis, lessened lumbar lordosis (as seen on xray), and increased sagittal vertical alignment (as seen on xray) influence a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are the most influential issues for patients having a poorer quality of life. (1) Another report links the disc height of the L1/L2, L2/L3, and L3/L4 to knee pain with L2/L3 being the most strongly related. (2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is related! A degenerated disc may be related to a degenerated knee. Malverne Health & Wellness is well aware of the connection and is ready to help.

Malverne chiropractic care of extruded discs may benefit regression of them and improve your quality of life. 

Malverne CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Extruded Discs May Regress!

Extruded discs - discs whose gelatinous centers leak out – tend to be a bit worrisome than disc bulges to their sufferers, but in a new study they regressed with conservative, non-surgical care! At about 17 months of care, 75% of extrusions completely went away, 15% partially resolved, and 10% did show any resolution. 90% did! Plus, those patients whose discs resolved also reported significantly improved NRS pain scores, symptoms and disability issues. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness relieves pain from extruded discs! They don’t scare us!

Listen to this discussion about care of the extruded disc with Cox® Technic on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as Dr. Ted Siciliano shares this case of a disc extrusion in a weight lifter he positively helped.
