Chiropractic Treats Herniated Discs Fort Worth TX
As doctors of chiropractic, we realize there are many who feel they can self treat their back pain, not realizing that they may have a herniated disc instead of a muscle pull. As a trusted Fort Worth chiropractor, Dr. Noorani believes it's his responsibility to make sure every patient receives an accurate diagnosis and treatment for these issues. Patients need to know there are proven solutions to back pain because if they try to mask the problem with medication, it can escalate into a far greater issue that could result in disability.
Too many times patients come to us after exhausting all the "do it yourself" treatments and remedies. They've tried medication, massage, hot and cold packs, and the list goes on. There comes a point when they realize that their back pain is not going away, and it's time to seek professional help.
Facts About Herniated Discs and Disc Degeneration
- Herniated discs do not always create pain; proper treatment can resolve the issue over a period of time.
- Degenerated disks have abnormal blood supply.
- Degenerated discs have more nerve supply than normal discs.
- The body's range of motion is reduced in degenerated discs.
- Nerves that are compressed around the disk can cause sciatica.
It's easy for most of us to assume that people in their 60's and above will be the ones most susceptible to herniated discs or bulging discs. The truth is, anyone can have a herniated disc and it doesn't matter whether you're 20 or 60. As we grow older, the spine slowly degenerate. For some it's faster than others, but regardless of age, there are many contributing factors to herniations: age, occupation, smoking, weight, sports, trauma to the back, poor posture, and the list goes on. If you sit behind a desk 10 hours a day, and don't properly exercise 3 to 4 times a week, your chances of having back problems greatly increase.
Chiropractic Treatment of Herniated Disc
Another false belief people have is that the chiropractor will need to use excessive force to align their disc back into place. As a leading Fort Worth chiropractic clinic, we rarely use traditional manual adjustments for bulging discs or discs that have compressed. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of our patients are treated with a gentle pain-free program of low-force techniques using state-of-the-art spinal decompression traction machines.
Another common misconception patients have is that the treatment process is very quick. On the contrary, as chiropractors we treat herniated disk problems in a methodical process, based on regular evaluations and treatments over a period of time. Trying to rush the treatment could result in long-term damage to the spine, so the adjustments we make happen gradually to ensure the disc is healing properly.
