3 Ways a Chiropractor Can Help With Herniated Disc, Groton, Connecticut

If you are suffering from severe back pain caused by a herniated disc, surgery is not your only option. In addition to being holistic and non-invasive, there are many ways chiropractic care can help treat this problem. The skilled chiropractors at Advanced Back and Neck Center in Groton, CT, explain how they treat herniated discs.

chiropractorEvaluate the Spine 

One of the main benefits of seeing a chiropractor for a herniated disc is they will evaluate and treat the entire spine as opposed to just the affected area. This is because it’s possible for a problem in one area of the spine to cause a herniated disc in a different location.

Create a Treatment Plan

After they evaluate the source of the pain, the chiropractor will create a treatment plan for the injury to address the root of the issue and prevent it from reoccurring. Because chiropractic care is holistic, this plan will most likely be spread out over a series of appointments; however, it will save you from having to resort to painkillers or an expensive surgery.

Use a Variety of Techniques 

Chiropractors may use a variety of techniques to treat a herniated disc and alleviate back pain. Such treatments may include spinal manipulation, spinal traction, and other low-force techniques, depending on the severity of the condition. They will also share exercises you can practice at home to increase your range of motion and relieve pain.

If you are suffering from a herniated disc or another type of back injury, call (860) 448-2225 to schedule an appointment at Advanced Back and Neck Center and learn how their chiropractic therapy can help.
