Treating a lower back herniated disc Without surgery or medications
A herniated disc is sometimes called a bulging, protruding, or ruptured disc. It is one of the most common causes of lower back pain and associated leg pain. The condition occurs when the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a crack in the tough exterior casing.
Some herniated discs cause no symptoms, and not every herniated disc needs intervention.
Herniated discs get better on their own over time or with nonsurgical treatment for nine out of 10 people. In most cases, the pain from a herniated disc will improve within a couple of days and completely resolve in four to six weeks. Traditional treatment can escalate to bed rest, prescription medication pain management, injections, and even surgery.
Chiropractic is a preferred treatment method for many patients with bulging and herniated discs because it is non-invasive and does not involve drugs or injections. Chiropractic care can significantly speed recovery and reduce the chance of reoccurrence.
If you want to explore conservative options for recovery, chiropractic care is an excellent place to start. A chiropractor can help you heal naturally and relieve your pain.
One of the most popular features of chiropractic care is the whole-body approach to wellness. A chiropractor will look at your entire spine in the framework of your lifestyle and prior injuries. Often treatments include recommendations for self-care, including exercise, nutrition, and other non-invasive treatments.
Chiropractic treatment for bulging or herniated discs is safe, effective, and long-lasting. If you or someone you know is suffering from back pain due to a herniated disc, we recommend quality chiropractic care so you can reach your True Potential.
