Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. Our office is equipped with a specifically designed chiropractic table which features gentle spinal traction as well as spinal flexion, extension, and lateral flexion. The table is designed to decompress the disc and allow the bulging disc to retract away from the irritated nerve. This creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to reduce or dissipate entirely.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal traction treatment plan that corresponds with your condition so you make recover without the need for drugs or surgery.
