Disc Herniation Relief
Types of Disc HerniationWe have been providing chiropractic care to our patients in the Greater Scranton area for over 25 years. If you suffer from pain due to disc herniation, we can help you find relief from the pain and improve your condition. Over the decades, we have helped patients with different types of disc herniation problems including contained discs and non-contained discs.
During the initial appointment, we will check your medical history, conduct a physical examination, and run neurological and orthopedic tests. We will check many things and ask several questions related to the following areas:
- Reflexes: Whether your reflexes are working. This helps determine if the nerves are properly sending messages.
- Muscle Strength: Tests will be done to check if there is any muscle strength loss or muscle wastage.
- Sensation: Whether there is loss of sensation in the nerves.
We will also check your posture and may require an imaging test. Even when you have lower back pain, we will assess the entire spine. So, we will also examine the neck. This is done to check how effectively your spine is functioning. Once we have determined the type of disc injury, we can create the ideal treatment plan to improve your condition.
Each area of the spine undergoes a slightly different type of examination, diagnosis, and treatment. The focus of all the treatments is the same – returning to a pain-free lifestyle at the earliest.
Herniated Discs & Chiropractic CareWe will carefully examine the condition of the herniated disc and the general spinal health before making gentle adjustments to the problem area. We provide neurologically and scientific-based care for the safe and efficient assessment and adjustment of the spine. Having over 25 years of experience in providing chiropractic care, we have mastered the art of making spinal adjustments with gentle precision.
We can gently adjust the area of the spine to stop it from pressing a nerve. Many times, this provides instant relief to our patients. Inflammation and improper nerve communication are often caused by misalignments. Our adjustments can help reduce inflammation and restore proper nerve communication. Chiropractic care provides long-term disc herniation relief, also improving your quality of life. We provide disc herniation relief for cervical, thoracic, and lumbar disc herniation.
