A great deal of people think they need surgery for bulging or herniated discs. Although surgery may be required for some patients, it is not necessary for everyone. If surgery is eventually required to repair a herniated disc tear, chiropractic bulging or herniated disc treatment can help to reduce symptoms so that surgery can be postponed. Some of our patients at Vital Wellness Center have required less invasive, high-risk procedures after a course of chiropractic treatment.
Our patients experience the benefits of a thorough assessment and a carefully designed treatment plan based on scientific research no matter what surgical decisions they need to make. They can also benefit from our guidance concerning various lifestyle interventions such as sleep, nutrition, and movement. Our bulging or herniated disc chiropractor is hopeful that this guide will give our patients useful knowledge about bulging and herniated discs and the treatments that can help these conditions.
Pelvic Blocking and Other Exercises for Bulging or Herniated Discs
Exercise is an important element of every treatment plan we develop. When performing pelvic blocking exercises, we position the patient on cushioned wedges to reduce disc compression. The objective of this treatment is to relieve the nerves from the disc that is compressing them.
Vital Wellness Center prescribes exercise programs to be done at home in addition to in-office exercises. A home program usually includes gentle stretching and repositioning exercises and is customized based on each patient’s needs. Strengthening exercises are often included in a prescribed activity program to reinforce the muscles that support the spine.
Lifestyle Interventions for Pro-Disc Health Enhancement
We believe that supplements, exercises, and other specified interventions lead to optimum health when combined with a solid foundation of high-quality sleep, good nutrition, and satisfying social connections. Even though they are proven to be beneficial, chiropractic interventions will not do much good if the body does not have rest for rebuilding itself or adequate fuel for performance. The heart of our approach to promoting disc health are our lifestyle interventions.
