Don’t let a disc herniation slow you down!

Disc
bulging (and herniations) are a natural part of the aging process. Yes, that’s
right. As gravity pulls you down, you continue to age, and injuries catch up to
you – your body starts to wear down, and degenerative processes begin. As a
matter of fact, degeneration of the spine often begins before you are even 30
years old!

If
you have had an MRI of your spine, you may have hit the floor when looking at
the report. It can be scary when you see multiple levels of your spine have
disc bulges, degenerative changes, and herniations. Well, don’t worry – just
because various levels of your spine are not perfect, it doesn’t mean that they’re
all causing pain, and research shows us that you are in the right place!

The
truth is, you can have disc bulges and herniations that don’t cause pain. Our
job is to perform a careful examination and determine which, if any, of your
discs, are causing pain, numbness, or weakness. If you’re suffering from a disc
bulge or herniation that is causing pain, adjustments may be just what the
doctor ordered.

  • Over 90% of patients with disc herniations reported being better or much
    better following Chiropractic care.
  • Within the first two weeks of receiving adjustments, over 55% of patients
    reported significant improvement.

Sharing
is one of the best ways to show you care for your friends and family. Take this
research and share it with a friend or family member who recently had an MRI of
their spine. They may be scared and unsure of what to do next. However, once
they are able to understand their condition, and that conservative care is
their best option, they will be able to make a smart decision about their
health!
