Herniated Disc Treatment NYC– Treatment Information
At our office in NYC, treatment for a herniated disc is one of our areas of expertise. Using a patented treatment protocol developed by our chiropractor, we integrate several different therapies to treat pain associated with a herniated disc and to prevent future recurrences. Read below for more information on specific services that aid in the relief of back pain, neck pain and leg pain from a herniated disc.
Gentle Chiropractic Care with the Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique
Chiropractic care is a core component of treatment for many of the painful conditions we treat. Gentle chiropractic care with Cox Flexion-Distraction helps lower intradiscal pressure, a factor that can help encourage the natural healing processes to repair a herniated disc. It is completely non-surgical and helps reduce pain in the lower back, legs, neck and much more.
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression with the DRX 9000
For conditions like herniated discs or bulging discs, the DRX 9000 spinal decompression table was created. By applying precise pressure to the affected spinal discs, the “pumping” effect of the treatment helps pump the disc with important nutrients. These are used to help the disc heal itself. Over time, a complete spinal decompression regimen can also draw herniated material back inside the disc, relieving the nerve compression that so often leads to pain. Only a qualified doctor can tell if spinal decompression is right for you.
Cold Laser Therapy and Physical Therapy
Other contributions to treatment are made with cold laser therapy and physical rehabilitation. A physical therapist is crucial to help prevent future problems with a herniated disc; strength training can better equip the back’s supporting muscles to handle the job. Cold laser therapy (also called low level laser therapy) can help tissues to heal themselves more quickly. Both elements are incorporated into a typical herniated disc treatment protocol.
