Herniated disc pain can be frustrating and debilitating, but fortunately over 95% of cases are treatable without surgery or medication.
Neck or back pain – can be dull or sharp, or feel like a pinch
Burning or sharp shooting pains
Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms, hands or legs
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.
Goal for Treatment
Help you return to your daily activities without pain and helping your herniated disc to heal, naturally.
How We Help You Recover
Relieve Pain Without Surgery with Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine while using a traction table. The goal is to relieve back pain and/or leg pain. Our chiropractor also works to promote an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerated, or herniated discs.
Spinal decompression is a type of therapy applied to the spine that brings patients many benefits. First, we attempt to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or re-positioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. Secondly, we create a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients as well as other substances into the disc.
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?
ypically, disc injuries can be healed without surgical intervention. Treatment length depends 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.
