Disc Herniation

Herniated Disc Rehabilitation

 

Just Because You Have A Herniated Disc Doesn’t Mean You Need Surgery! Every year our office successfully treats patients with herniated discs and enables them to avoid the use of surgery, injections or drugs.

Herniated discs occur due to pressure in the disc becoming too great. When this happens the inside “jelly like” material tears through the disc wall, resulting in the disc material pressing painfully on nerve roots, surrounding tissues, and structures.

An injured disc will often lead to numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness in the arm or leg and most often occurs in your lower back.  A herniated disc but can also occur in your neck or mid back.

X-ray: Imaging used to evaluate your spinal bones and joints.

MRI: An imaging method most commonly used to visualize soft tissues of the spine.

Our Methods


  • 1.

    Heat

    Heat therapy works by stimulating your body’s own healing force. For instance, heat dilates the blood vessels, stimulates blood circulation, and reduces muscle spasms. In addition, heat alters the sensation of pain.

  • 2.

    Cold

    Reduces swelling by constricting blood vessels. While cold packs may be uncomfortable at first, they can numb deep pain.

  • 4.

    Ultrasound

    Therapeutic Ultrasound is a method of stimulating tissue beneath the skin’s surface using sound waves. It is a very high frequency massage that can penetrate up to 5″ below the surface of your skin.

  • 5.

    Exercise

    This may include stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. Your Chiropractor may teach you an exercise program so you can do it at home.
