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

Degenerated discs and degenerated knees are not such strange bedfellows. They are seen to be related. Paramus 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 unlikely companions. They are cases of musculoskeletal diseases and spinal disorders that are related to a lesser quality of life for older folks. Issues like low back pain, lumbar spinal stenosis, knee pain because of osteoarthritis, decreased lumbar lordosis (visible on xray), and increased sagittal vertical alignment (visible on xray) affect a person’s quality of life. Lumbar spinal stenosis and knee osteoarthritis are the most influential issues for patients having a lesser 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 correlated. (2) The old “Dem Bones” song holds true! Everything is connected! A degenerated knee may be related to a degenerated disc. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands the connection and is ready to help.

Paramus chiropractic care of extruded discs may help them regress and improve your quality of life. 

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

Extruded discs - discs whose gelatinous centers leak out – tend to be a bit scarier than disc bulges to their owners, 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 went away, 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center helps extruded discs find relief! They don’t scare us!

Listen to this discussion on care of the disc extrusion 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 successfully helped.
