Disc herniation occurs when the soft cushion that sits between each vertebra is pushed out of position. Pain develops as the spinal nerves, at the top of the spinal discs, are exposed, causing irritation and tenderness. Disc herniation causes a number of painful symptoms such as nerve pressure, numbness, tingling, shooting pain, difficulty standing.
Our treatments primarily focus on the cause of your problems, which not only results in rapid and effective pain-relief, but most importantly, minimizes the chance of future disc problems.
The Physical Medicine experts at the Institute for Functional Health can safely assess your back injury, and create a therapy plan specific to your needs. Our goal is to relieve patients of pain associated with a herniated disc without the use of invasive treatments or surgery.
For us, this begins with a thorough diagnostic assessment. We can then craft a plan that may include chiropractic care and physical therapy. If we believe you are a good candidate for steroid-free joint injections, we will also present you with those options.
We invite you to book your Physical Medicine Discovery Day online or call our office. Our integrative approach will get to the root cause of your pain and allow us to provide a plan that works with your insurance company for fast pain relief. Quick relief and get you back to your normal life . . . that's our goal!
