You Can Treat Herniated Discs Without Surgery

Written By Texas Spine & Sports Rehab Clinic on June 1, 2021

Herniated Disc Treatment Surgery is a permanent, irreversible treatment for herniated discs. It also comes with the risk of damaging the spine or nerves. Even worse, you may still be in pain after you heal up. Research shows there are far better non-surgical ways to eliminate pain and show your spine some love.

We at Texas Spine & Sports Rehab Clinic strive to help our patients avoid surgery with our integrative approach.We have a 98% success rate within a 6 week timeframe via all the therapies we offer for herniated discs.

Clinical Trials Show the Body Reacts Well to Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

We offer three ways to treat herniated discs: spinal decompression, physical rehabilitation, and acupuncture. Non-surgical spinal decompression works to create space for a disc to glide back into place, physical rehabilitation aims to reduce pressure and restore blood flow, and acupuncture  aims to stimulate healing by increasing blood flow. All three methods aim to increase quality of life.

Results published in a journal article in Orthopedic Technology Review showed that 86% of the 219 patients who completed non-surgical spinal decompression therapy reported immediate resolution of symptoms while 84% of patients remained pain free 90 days post treatment. Physical examination findings showed improvement in 92% of the 219 patients, and remained intact in 89% of these patients 90 days after treatment.

Physical rehabilitation provides a lifestyle structure to protect your spine while letting the herniated disc heal. Expert physical care can reduce pain, establish proper posture, build muscle strength and flexibility to keep your discs in place and safely help restore range of motion.

And as far as acupuncture goes, a recent systematic review of acupuncture treatment for disc herniation concluded that acupuncture provided better results than pain medications.

Another study that focused on long-term outcomes for patients with lumbar disc herniation showed that ten years after receiving acupuncture treatment for their pain they reported positive long-term results, acupuncture having helped to resolve their sciatica symptoms.
