If you are currently having disc problems, no doctor can force your disc to regrow short of invasive surgery, and no doctor can push your disc back in where it belongs. However, there are several conservative techniques that can be attempted to relieve your disc symptoms and even reduce the amount of herniation, if any.
The essential task is to restore the proper amount of motion to the affected area. Since discs are fed by motion, the increased nutrition to the discs that results from motion can often halt the progression of degenerative disc disease. And the application of precise movements in specific directions can often halt or reverse the progression of disc herniations and their symptoms.
The gentle chiropractic adjustment and axial spinal decompression are standard, safe, and effective treatments for a variety of disc conditions, including disc herniation and degeneration. Dr. Johnson of Johnson Family Chiropractic of Peoria has helped many patients avoid costly surgeries for their low back and neck disc problems.
