Chiropractic Treatment for Disc Herniation
Mild to moderate disc herniations or “slipped discs” can usually be treated conservatively with stretching, exercise therapy and chiropractic care. More advanced cases will often require some form of spinal decompression, such as traction or mechanical decompression, in conjuction with chiropractic care. Dr. Smith and Dr. deWitt can evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment possibilities.
Occasionally, a herniation may be severe enough to warrant surgical intervention. These cases are usually reserved as a last resort when other forms of therapy have failed to relieve pain, or if there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerves. Our chiropractors are happy to consult with you regarding the best treatment plan for your overall health.
