Life Chiropractic & Acupuncture - Disc Herniation

Chiropractors at Life Chiropractic & Acupuncture may use a variety of techniques to treat disc herniations, depending on the severity and location of the herniation, as well as the individual patient's needs. Some common approaches may include:

Spinal adjustments: Chiropractors use manual manipulation techniques to realign the spine, reduce pressure on the discs, and improve spinal function.

Flexion-distraction technique: This gentle, non-invasive technique involves using a specialized table to distract and flex the spine, which can help reduce pressure on the affected disc and promote healing.

Ultrasound therapy: Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to generate heat deep within the tissues, which can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with disc herniations.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to promote healing and reduce pain. It can be effective in managing the symptoms of disc herniations.

Therapeutic exercises: Chiropractors may prescribe specific exercises to help strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, improve flexibility, and reduce the risk of future disc herniations.

Lifestyle modifications: Chiropractors may also provide guidance on ergonomic principles, posture correction, and other lifestyle modifications to help prevent further injury and promote spinal health.

It's important to note that the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for disc herniations can vary depending on the individual patient and the specific circumstances of their condition. Chiropractors at Life Chiropractic & Acupuncture would typically conduct a thorough evaluation and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to the patient's needs and preferences.
