HERNIATED DISC TREATMENTS
Herniated discs can cause sudden, severe and unrelenting pain syndromes. Patients often present to Emergency Rooms, Primary Care Offices, and even Orthopedic Offices seeking relief from constant burning radiating pain. Treatment is often delayed as patients go through the process of gathering information about there condition including MRI’s, and X-rays. Even then a conservative approach is undertaken through physical therapy to treat and reverse the herniation(s). If this proves unsuccessful, then a variety of injections may be recommended and even surgery considered.
Relief can come sooner with the frequent and immediate application of acupuncture. Acupuncture has proven to be a very effective treatment for reduction of the radiating, and stabbing pain that often accompanies herniated discs. Acupuncture treatment is non-invasive and can begin immediately without interference with physical therapy or other medically prescribed prescriptions. In addition, Acupuncture can help you return to normal and pain free functioning faster than doing just physical therapy alone.
