What should I expect when I turn to a chiropractor?
Whether you’ve already been diagnosed with disc herniations or suspect you might be dealing with them, we can provide you with the custom chiropractic care you need. Before we recommend a specific type of treatment, we will sit down and discuss your medical history and perform a physical exam. We may also require an X-ray or MRI to help aid us in a proper diagnosis.
How will a chiropractor treat a herniated disc?
Furthermore, we will create a treatment plan tailored to your health, symptoms, and needs. Below are some common chiropractic treatments for herniated discs.
This is a commonly used technique to help reduce symptoms caused by a herniated disc, particularly in the lower back. A computerized table helps stretch and flex the spine to keep the disc away from the nerve to reduce inflammation and pain. This often requires several sessions in conjunction with other treatments to help reduce your symptoms.
MLS Laser Therapy
We are one of the only medical clinics in the Tampa Bay area to provide patients with disc herniations and other musculoskeletal problems with MLS Laser Therapy, a non-surgical robotic technology to deliver light to areas of the body that are damaged to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes at a cellular level. This laser therapy can also improve cellular function, helping reduce pain and swelling caused by disc herniations and diseases, as well as joint pain, arthritis, and post-surgical pain.
Our spinal decompression therapy, which involves using the DRX9000, alleviates pressure on the spine and can improve sciatica, herniated disc, pinched nerves, and other common back issues. This powerful, state-of-the-art device stretches the spine and takes the pressure off the nerves and discs, allowing more oxygen and blood to flow back into these areas of the body to facilitate healing and reduce pain and swelling.
