Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. I have been utilizing a time proven treatment procedure since 1981 that allows me to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with my many years of experienced hands for a treatment called spinal decompression.
Using this procedure I am able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The procedure is specific to your type of problem utilizing my years of experience in treating other patients with similar problems. I gently stretch and relax the spine through flexion, extension, side bending and in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal treatment only takes about 10-15 minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks. The general rule of thumb is you should be 50% better in four weeks with being treated three times a week for the more serious problems.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, I will work with you to find a treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if this advanced spinal treatment can help you.
