How We Help Degenerative Disc Disease
The information we gain from your consultation and exam helps us determine if you are a candidate for degenerative disc disease treatment in our office. You can expect to have improved movement, decreased neck and back pain and increased muscle strength. If you are a candidate, you can become more active and have a better quality of life within weeks.
If you have had radiographs or MRIs taken before, please bring them with you to your appointment for our doctors to review. We see many patients that have failed other treatments such as prescription medications, injections, physical therapy, and even surgery.
Narrowing and flattening of the discs makes them less shock-absorbing. However, rather than simply treating the symptoms, our doctors provide a long-term strategy in Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment. Our goal is to not only get you the relief that you seek right away, but also prevent future spinal decay and degeneration. Your discs may never be textbook normal again, but being proactive with your health can definitely help prevent further disc damage.
Disc Injury Treatment
Non-surgical spinal decompression helps rehabilitate spinal discs by slowly relaxing and stretching your spine by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases. During your session, downward forces of gravity are removed, creating a vacuum effect and negative intra-discal pressure. The cycles of relaxation and distraction promote the diffusion of oxygen, water and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside to flow back into your discs. These nutrients allow the degenerated and torn disc fibers to begin to heal.
Give us a call for cervical degenerative disc disease treatment and lumbar degenerative disc disease treatment options. We treat many patients with disc injuries successfully with our state-of-the-art non-surgical spinal decompression and NUCCA Upper Cervical Care.
