Can Chiropractic Ease a Herniated Cervical Disc?

Monday, March 17th, 2014

First thing to know is this: cold laser-enhanced spinal decompression is the treatment of choice for a cervical or lumbar disc herniation. It just is. Research show it to be a fact. Not a guess or a hope. For more information on Cold Laser-Enhanced Spinal Decompression, please click the link and go to our sister site

But, that is a cash service and is yet to be covered through insurance so some patients opt out of doing the regimen. After all, it’s not incredibly cheap. We here at Amarillo Pain & Accident Chiropractic Clinic (APACC) are over 50%  less than lots of other Amarillo chiropractors but it’s still a chore when you pay out of pocket.

Disc herniations in the neck are the  second most common reasons to have radiating symptoms from the neck region. Swiss researchers decided to get some research done on the condition.

Here’s how it went:

  • 50 patients having neck disc issues confirmed via MRI
  • They were treated by chiros through adjustments
  • Two weeks later over 50% of the patients improved significantly
  • At 3 months, 85.7% had significant result
  • None of them had any negative affects

It’s hard to argue with stats like that.

We have been treating discs for years. Manipulation has always been very effective. Now, with the addition of cold laser-enhanced spinal decompression, we are truly able to offer our patients results that are stronger, longer lasting, and more durable.

Till next time……
