The pain from a bulging disc can be horrible. We are asked quite often if chiropractic can help, and, as you can imagine, there are an unlimited number of scenarios.
Often, we can work with patients who have this issue. It is always helpful to us to see any MRI’s or other tests they have had done so if you have had testing done, please let us know so we can have the report faxed to us ahead of time or, if you have copies of the imaging on a disc, please bring that with you to your visit.
The way this office works with a disc issue is by restoring movement to the effected joint. This is done as much as possible through adjustments and muscle work to help the body heal itself. How affective this is and how fast it happens varies from person to person.
We always do a detailed work-up of the patient before beginning care so that when making the decision to be a patient in this office, they can know what to expect and what exactly is treatable.
