For anyone who has ever suffered from a herniated disc in the Madison area, you know how painful it is. Whether the displaced disc is in the neck or the back, we understand that you just want the problem solved and the pain to go away.
Dr. Rich will do a thorough exam to find out exactly where your herniated disc is and work with you to develop a treatment plan to get you the fast pain relief you’re looking for without invasive surgeries that may not fix the problem long term.
Herniated Disc Treatment
There are many treatment options for a herniated disc that doesn’t involve invasive surgical procedures. Dr. Rich has vast knowledge and experience to help you get fast and long-lasting relief from pain due to bulging, ruptured, or slipped discs.
Using the latest technology we can use your body’s own capabilities to heal, restore, and renew an injury. Dr. Rich will often recommend chiropractic therapies to provide the most efficient treatment plan to heal the area and prevent future injury.
Additional options for treatment may include:
- Spinal decompression, which is a gentle cycle of stretch and release to the cervical or lumbar region of the spine allowing the space where the herniated disc is to open, encouraging the discs to return to its proper position.
- Spinal adjustment, which can return flexibility and natural curvature to the whole spine.
- Massage therapy relaxes muscles preventing further damage or injury.
- Exercise and physical therapy can strengthen the supporting muscles to restore function.
Herniated Disc Symptoms
The structure of the spine consists of stacked bones which are protected by cushions that are set between the vertebrae. These cushions are known as “discs” and are made of soft material surrounded by a strong coating. A herniated disc is when the soft material gets through that surrounding material due to a damaged or torn disc. When this occurs, pressure can be put on the nerves causing severe and chronic pain. If you have a herniated disc in the neck, simply reaching up high or holding objects may become harder for you.
If your herniated disc is located in your back, you may experience pain that radiates to the thighs, legs, and even feet. When everyday activities are causing sudden, sharp, or shooting pain, this may indicate that the nerves around displaced discs are being affected.
