We have been providing nonsurgical treatment for lumbar disc herniation in Shelton, CT for nearly 20 years.
Believe it or not, there are many medical doctors and people who find out they have a disc herniation who think that back surgery is the best or only option.
First of all, there is often no connection between the low back pain or sciatica that a patient may be experiencing and the herniated disc. In fact, over 50% of the general population is estimated to have an asymptomatic bulging or herniated disc. That’s right you can have a bulging or herniated disc and not even know it.
Sure, there are patients that have a herniated disc that have severe pain and loss of function…but that does not automatically mean they should rush and have back surgery like many doctors recommend. Medical emergencies are very rare when it comes to back surgery. In fact, many problems heal on their own.
So, what should you do if you have been diagnosed with a herniated disc in the lumbar spine? Well…I would not run and have surgery. Chiropractic is a very effective treatment option and it is safe and gentle…despite what some doctors may tell you. You can find mounds of research over at Chiro-Trust.org to support this point of view.
In the event that chiropractic fails to deliver desired results then we have a “next step”…Spinal Decompression With The DRX9000 Nonsurgical 9000 The DRX9000 is designed and built to treat bulging and herniated discs in the low back without surgery. The results are outstanding.
For sure you want to make sure you find a doctor that has lots of experience treating herniated discs with spinal decompression.
