How To Heal Herniated Disk

Herniated disc

Your spine is the support system for the body. Just as a house needs a good framework to walk, run, dance, lift, sit or stand.

The spine is made up of multiple bones called vertebrae, stacked one ato move branch off from the spinal cord through smaller holes in the vertebra.

A spine is both strong and delicate at the same time. It supports the weight of the skull and body even during heavy activity such as weight-lifting. However, like many parts of your anato work properly. If your spine is injured, or becomes imbalanced through chronic poor posture or degeneration of the bones, it will cause back pain and put pressure on the nerves that exit between the vertebrae.

As some people get older — particularly if they have done heavy work for many years — the disk between two vertebrae may begin to develop a ruptured lumbar disk than those who have sedentary lives. If a disk ruptures in this area, it may put pressure on the sciatic nerve, which is located at the base of the spine. In addition, the pressure causes inflammation of the nerve. The pressure can cause severe back pain and leg pain in one or both legs.

Back and neck pain can be immobilizing. This sort of pain is very different from a muscle strain, which can often be treated with rest, ice packs and other-the-counter pain relievers.

Herniated disk treatment begins with a thorough assessment, using various modalities to assess your movements and tell us if the body is out of balance.

Once we’ve identified the problem, we may use chiropractic techniques to schedule your consultation.


In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
