Herniated Disc Treatment with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
For the past several years herniated disc treatment with non-surgical spinal decompression has been my treatment of choice for bulging and herniated discs.
Since the introduction of non-surgical spinal decompression to our clinic, we’ve helped hundreds of patients from Lakewood, Littleton and the entire Denver, Colorado metro area. And as safe and effective that non-surgical spinal decompression is, unfortunately, there have been people we haven’t been able to help as well. It’s a ‘double tough’ condition.
If there’s one absolute that I can conclude from my experience it’s this- you can’t ‘tough out’ a herniated disc.
Prior to the addition of the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression machine, in our clinic we predominantly utilized conservative and specific chiropractic care, a back pain relief machine called the ATM2, lifestyle modifications (including case specific stretches and/or exercises) and physical and manual therapy.
But sometimes this approach just plain fell short.
By utilizing clinical discretion and adding spinal decompression therapy when appropriate we’ve dramatically increased our success rate in providing treatment for herniated disc pain sufferers to help them get ‘back in the game.’
Of course, sometimes surgery ends up being inevitable, but more often than not the non-surgical spinal decompression approach is very effective at relieving sciatica, leg and arm pain and/or neck and low back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs.
That’s been my experience anyway.
One of the main reasons I like spinal decompression therapy is that not only is it capable of relieving your pain, it’s capable of making the tissues that are causing the pain healthier.
If you think you may have a bulging disc or a herniated disc (or you’ve already been diagnosed with one) and you want to explore alternatives to back surgery and you live in Lakewood, Littleton, Denver or the surrounding area, call our clinic and set up a consultation with me to go over your individual case- each person has unique needs.
