Pensacola Chiropractic Care May Better for Vertebral Fractures than Vertebroplasty

Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center suggests curcumin for pain reduction and Pensacola conservative care for vertebral fractures instead of vertebroplasty.

NO VERTEBROPLASTY FOR VERTEBRAL FRACTURE

Pensacola Chiropractic Option for Conservative Care

Osteoporotic vertebral fractures hurt. Often brought on by a fall or injury, a Pensacola vertebral fracture (compression fracture) occurs when a vertebra – a bone of the spine - will dissolve on itself, causing the bone to shrink in size.  Researchers and doctors discovered a way to “fix” these vertebral fractures by inserting a cement type compound into the collapsed bone to return it to its usual size again. This procedure is called vertebroplasty. It made sense. However, a recent Cochrane Review study of results over numerous years show that high- to moderate-quality evidence shows no important benefit of vertebroplasty for acute or subacute osteoporotic vertebral fractures and warns of its capability to harm. Adverse side-effects from vertebroplasty include osteomyelitis, cord compression, thecal sac injury and respiratory failure. (1) How does chiropractic care conservatively manage a vertebral compression fracture? Consult Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. The suitable 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 clarified. In the meantime, there are conservative options like bracing, good posture (with even a little extension), pain medications, etc., to relieve the pain.

Pain-relieving curcumin may be a good addition to the Pensacola 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, particularly 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 reducing 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 good addition to your nutrition routine. Let us talk about it at your next Pensacola chiropractic visit at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center!
