Our practice is a bit different from some other chiropractic offices since we treat a lot of people with herniated and degenerated discs. We help them with a combination of tools including spinal decompression, instrument chiropractic adjustments, cold laser and exercise therapy. We’re very successful and most patients get better without ever needing to resort to risky surgeries or drugs.
Lots of people don’t know that they are having a “disc problem” because when these problems first occur, they don’t immediately cause severe symptoms. Instead, they usually begin as intermittent, small issues, like an ache or a pain, deep in the hips, back or neck. They seem to come and go with no reason or warnings and can be little more than an inconvenience. Things can go on that way for weeks, months or even years and people may never recognize the pains as signs of a growing problem until finally they have a severe episode and have to find help.
Disc injuries happen a little bit at a time, sometimes over a period of years. Small injuries add up until the damage is significant. The pain that brings people in for care is usually not the first one they have had – it just is the one that finally gets their attention. Most people miss the early signs of a developing problem, which is sad because catching the issue earlier makes it much easier to help. If you think that you’re showing signs of a disc injury, don’t wait for severe pain to start looking for solutions. Give us a call today.
