"In my neck, I have 2 bulging discs and 2 with degenerative disc disease plus arthritis and bone spurs. A 2015 visit to a surgeon told me that I would need a fusion surgery. Yikes! I decided to visit Dr. Saracina first and she has treated me ever since! I've been able to remain extremely active without surgery. Thanks Dr. Saracina!"
treatment for Herniated or Bulging Disc
There are multiple terms used to describe spinal disc problems and their associated pain, such as “herniated disc”, “bulging disc”, “pinched nerve”, “slipped disc”, “collapsed disc”, “disc protrusion”, and “disc disease” to name a few.
At Atlantic Chiropractic disc issues are treated utilizing flexion and distraction to decompress the disc. As well as chiropractic manipulation. Therapeutic modalities such as EMS, traction and cryotherapy are often used in the earlier stages to help get your pain under control so you can perform the stretches and exercises that will help resolve your symptoms.
Long Term Care
Long term care is what some patients opt for when their pain has resolved or stabilized. Maintenance, Supportive, and Wellness care are all terms that are used to describe this type of care. Research has shown that individuals who are treated with chiropractic care every four to six weeks have slower rates of degenerative disc disease, and their risk of flair ups is lessened. If they do have a flair up they often respond to care quicker with a fraction of the visits needed to resolve their pain in the first place. At Atlantic Chiropractic you will never be pressured into long term care. The choice is always yours.
