Neck Pain ReliefNeck pain associated with a herniated disc is often felt at the side or back of the neck. The pain can be anything from mild to sharp, causing a burning sensation. This pain may last for a few days or become chronic and persist for long. The pain and inflammation caused by the condition can also affect neck movements, reducing your range of motion.
The neck pain associated with a herniated disc can also come and ago. It may also flare up when you engage in certain activities. Our chiropractor can assess your condition before recommending the right therapy for neck pain relief.
Headache Pain ReliefHerniated disc can occur due to many reasons. This includes wear and tear, arthritis, and injuries, and these problems can cause a disc to dislocate by different degrees. The herniated disc can create pressure on the surrounding nerves and cause chronic headaches. The headaches caused by this condition are also known as cervicogenic headaches, as are those caused by injury or osteoarthritis.
Chiropractic TreatmentOnce our chiropractor has completed a thorough examination and diagnosis, we can use a series of chiropractic services to help you find relief from the pain. Besides spinal manipulation for healing your body, we can use several other techniques to address your herniated disc problem.
- Flexion-Distraction Therapy: We will use a special hand-based technique to stimulate the disc and help it fall back into its proper position. It can provide disc herniation relief and headache pain relief by moving the disc away from the nerves.
- Pelvic Blocking: This therapy focuses on relieving pressure on the discus.
- Manipulation Under Anesthesia: If you suffer from a lot of pain due to this condition, we can perform manipulation under anesthesia. This helps you undergo the treatment without any discomfort. The therapy session lasts from 15 to 60 minutes and requires multiple sessions for many days.
