A herniated disc is an injury that requires specialized rehabilitation entailing an extended period of recovery. Improper diagnosis and treatment will prolong recovery. Before pursuing invasive surgery to treat a herniated disc, you must have the cause of your pain properly diagnosed by a doctor specializing in the treatment of herniated discs .

Treating a Herniated Disc

At Spine and Sports Medicine there are non-invasive treatment options to alleviate your pain from herniated disc and get you back to your active, healthy lifestyle.

Herniated discs:

  • Commonly occur in people 30 to 50 years of age
  • Develop as a result of trauma or injury to the neck
  • A bulging disc pinches or presses on a cervical nerve
  • Symptoms begin without warning – spontaneously
  • Result in a pinching pain that radiates along the arm
  • Cause pain accompanied by numbness and tingling down the arm into the fingertips
  • Commonly cause arm muscle weakness

The Board Certified chiropractors, physical therapists, and physiatrists at Spine and Sports Medicine work in concert to provide whole body wellness through cutting edge, non-invasive techniques. Herniated discs are resolved effectively and cost-efficiently.

A Herniated Disc

  • Discs separate the vertebrae and act as soft, compressible, shock absorbers throughout the spine
  • A herniated disc is one that has ruptured after being injured – bulging – and left untreated
  • Disc injuries cause a vast array of pain throughout the body and worsen through bending, twisting, and reaching movements
  • A herniated disc in the neck area of your spine may be causing pain to radiate from your neck through your shoulder and arm
  • A herniated disc in your mid-to lower back may be causing pain to radiate into the buttocks and leg
  • Discomfort may also be experienced through tingling, numbness, and weakness

At Spine and Sports Medicine, your medical history, medications, lifestyle, and symptoms are fully evaluated during an in-depth diagnostic testing process. Taking your symptoms and history into consideration, onsite use of an X-ray, a CT scan, or a MRI scan will be utilized to accurately diagnose your condition and rule out other potentially serious medical conditions.
