Finding Lasting Relief from Disc Herniations

Bottom Line:

So, you’ve suffered a disc herniation, and it’s causing severe pain. Do you need an injection or surgery? What type of doctor should you see? Can a Chiropractor make it…worse? These are all common thoughts that may race through your mind after you’ve experienced a spinal  injury. First, take a deep breath and relax. Leading research journals have shown that you made a smart decision by choosing Chiropractic care. Many leading health organizations are now recommending Chiropractic as a top choice to find relief from disc herniations. To learn why keep reading…

Why it Matters:

Studies have shown that over 90% of people with a lumbar disc herniation that were treated with spinal adjustments improved within 3 months, and 88% improved within 1 year. Perhaps even more impressive was another study, which indicated that, for disc herniations in the neck, 86% of people found relief with Chiropractic adjustments compared with less the 50% of people who underwent a spinal injection. We continue to learn that, most of the time, the benefits of medications, injections, and surgery just don’t outweigh the risks.

  • Top healthcare organizations recommend taking a conservative approach to care, such as Chiropractic. Medications, injections, and surgery should only be used as a last resort.
  • In a recent study, researchers found that over 90% of patients with a lumbar disc herniation improved within the first 3 months of receiving Chiropractic adjustments.
  • Over 35% more people with cervical disc herniations found relief with Chiropractic adjustments than with spinal injections.
