Can Chiropractic Help Bulging Discs in the Back?
If you’ve ever had lower back pain or a herniated disc, then you know how much it can affect your life. The pain may run down your legs to your knees, or even down to your feet. You’ve tried everything, physical therapy, medications, exercises, etc., and you still haven’t got the results you have been hoping for. If this is a problem you’ve been struggling with, you’re not alone. Today we’re discussing, can corrective chiropractic help bulging and herniated discs in your spine?
Many people think they have tried everything when it comes to lower back pain and healing disc injuries. But really, the one thing they haven’t tried is finding someone that can determine the cause of their pain and the reason there is a bulging/herniated disc, and develop a plan to correct it.
Can a chiropractor help bulging discs in the spine? Read on to find out how a chiropractor that specializes in Chiropractic BioPhysics can help with healing disc injuries and relieve back pain.
Healing Disc Injuries…Why Nothing Seems to Work
If you’ve had back pain, disc injuries, or bulging discs, you’ve probably seen a doctor who gave you some medications to make the pain go away. Maybe the pain subsided for a little while, but it came back. Or maybe you got massages, and while they feel good at the time, it doesn’t help rid of the pain long-term. You may have gone through physical therapy and again, no lasting relief. You may have tried traditional chiropractic with adjustments only with no answer for long-term relief. Maybe you’ve even been so desperate for the pain to go away that you agreed to get injections.
But nothing is working. It’s frustrating. You feel like you’ve run out of options and you’re not really sure what to do next. The only thing you’re sure of is that you don’t want to continue living in pain.
The reason you aren’t finding relief is that these “solutions” aren’t fixing any of your problems. They’re putting a “band-aid” on the problem and while the band-aid may cover it up for a little while, the pain always comes back.
You need someone that can find the root cause of your pain, why this injury occurred in the first place and work to correct it.
How can a chiropractor help with healing disc injuries?
Chiropractors that specialize in Chiropractic Biophysics use evidence-based protocols that include utilizing x-ray to evaluate the biomechanics of your spine to find where your pain is coming from and develop a plan specifically made to correct your problem so you can be pain-free and live optimally.
The evidence-based protocols and research done on Chiropractic BioPhysics has utilized biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy to come up with treatment plans to fix spines in a conservative manner.
First, you’ll get a thorough examination, including x-rays, so that your doctor can examine to see what’s going on from inside out. From there, you’ll get a plan that will not only alleviate your pain but also work to correct your problem so that your body can work like it’s designed to do. Your plan might include exercises, spinal remodeling, traction, stretches, and regular adjustments.
