What is Lumbar Disc Herniation and how do we treat it?

Lumbar Disc Herniation can be a pain in the rear!… Literally!  The nerves that exit the low back are the same nerves that travel down your buttock and legs all the way to the feet and toes.  When a disc in your low back bulges or herniates it can cause severe pain down into the leg.

 Typically this pain is either on one side or the other and is worse with activity.  Unfortunately, most of the treatments for this condition simply focus to mask the symptoms but very few are aimed at addressing the actual cause of the condition…. the herniated disc.

 

   With the DRX-9000 we are able to specifically target the particular disc that is causing the pain and create a negative pressure within the disc and “un-bulge” or “un-herniate” these problematic disc.  This can be easily diagnosed via an MRI to determine if you are a good candidate for spinal decompression.
 

   Many of our patients have already tried treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, OTC medications, pain management, epidural injections, Rhizotomy, and nearly 50% of our patients have already had one spine surgery and are trying to avoid a second one.  As a matter of fact back surgery fails so often that there is an ICD-10 diagnosis code for FAILED BACK SURGERY SYNDROME; 722.8.

 

   If you have been diagnosed with a bulging or herniated disc and are tired of the pain that comes along with it please call our office and make an appointment so we can sit down and go over your case one on one.  Our doctors have over 33 years experience helping people beat this condition without drugs or surgery.  Let us see if we can help you too!
