The discs in a healthy spine are cushioned by spongy discs, filled with a jelly-like substance. Healthy discs help your back absorb shock and help your spine flex when necessary. However, these discs can start to break down as you age, and the soft inner material can begin to leak out, which may ultimately lead to the disc slipping out of place. This is called disc extrusion, also known as a ruptured or herniated disc. That means the spine is no longer being cushioned, and the disc could be compressing a nerve, leading to significant back and neck pain. Many people try ice and heat therapy and medications to find relief, only to still deal with serious pain long-term.
You might think your next choice is surgery, but our office offers another option. Call us at (203) 889-9831 to discuss laser therapy and other treatment options we offer.
At Connecticut Disc and Laser Therapy Centers, our alternative treatment options are designed to provide relief of discomfort and immobility for patients suffering from disc extrusion. We offer a range of treatment plans that may be right for you.
These treatment options can be used when conventional therapies fail. They can often provide pain relief, accelerated tissue healing, reduction of inflammation, and improved recovery times for many patients.
Once you have tried traditional therapies for disc extrusion, you may be disappointed with the results. If you have gone the traditional route and simply not gotten the pain relief and healing you are looking for, it may be time to consider Connecticut Disc and Laser Therapy Centers. We offer effective laser therapy in Connecticut, as well as other treatment options. Dr. Dalfino can review your disc extrusion in an initial consultation today.
