Treat Herniated Discs Without Costly and Dangerous Surgery
Herniated disc pain can be frustrating and debilitating, but fortunately over 95% of cases are treatable without surgery or medication.
Herniated discs are typically caused by wear and tear, and can also happen from improper lifting techniques or injury. The older we get, the more susceptible we are to this type of injury
The Good News
Over 95% of herniated discs can heal without the need for surgery. In fact, back surgery should be your last option as it carries high risks and often has a longer recovery time than our treatments.
Relieve Pain Without Surgery
Often, tissues in your back are irritated from being stuck in between vertebrae. This dries them out prematurely and increases risk of injury. To help increase blood flow to the injured areas, we use a specialized machine to gently stretch the spine, allowing fluids and nutrients back into your arthritic tissues to promote healing. The process is called non-surgical decompression, and is proven to help alleviate pain and other symptoms from stenosis.
Speed Up Recovery With Laser Therapy
Another way to help relieve your pain, and help your disc heal itself is by targeting dying and dehydrated tissues. To do this we use a calibrated laser that helps increase blood flow, repair tissues and stimulate cell growth, while most importantly reducing inflammation. This type of laser is perfectly safe, painless and even cool to the touch.
Heal Fast with a Customized Exercise Plan and Chiropractic care
At Aspen Falls we use specially developed exercises, along with the latest research in chiropractic care, to help your disc to return to its natural position. We’ll train you on these exercises at the clinic, that way you can do them at home in between visits. This helps speed up recovery, and prevent future injuries, while giving you the power to treat at home.
How long will it take to heal your herniated disc?
Typically, your disc can recover in as little as 4 weeks, and as many as 12 depending on how severe your injury is, age, and how well you follow your home exercise program. Patients that are working through home exercises along with attending scheduled sessions often recover fastest.
