If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with a disc herniation, you need to know your options for recovery. Chiropractic is a great alternative to risky more invasive procedures. A disc herniation occurs when one of the jelly-like discs in your spine loses its form and bulges or pushes out from its normal space. This can press on the nerves of your spine, and when its in the low back it can cause pain or numbness in your hip and legs.
Fortunately, with the proper diagnosis and a very specific chiropractic adjustment I've been able to relieve the pain of disc herniation for many patients. Here are some interesting facts: Chiropractic Works Just as Well as Spinal Injections with out the pain or risk of injecting a large needle into your spine.
Two recent studies found that chiropractic is equally effective as spinal injections, costs less money, and has few side effects. This was found to be true for both cervical and lumbar disc herniations! Spinal Injections Increase Risk of Bone Fractures - A study from 2013 found that every single epidural spinal injection increases the risk of spinal fractures by 21%! Surgery is Risky - Did you know that up to 74% of back surgeries fail and leave patients in pain?
Chiropractic is one of the best ways to treat back pain, whether it's caused by disc herniation or other problems. In fact, even the AMA recommends trying chiropractic before resorting to surgery!
