TREATING HERNIATED DISCS

Statistics
If you are looking for effective non surgical relief from a herniated disc then you are not alone. More than 1 million America suffer from herniated discs every year. Collectively we spend more than $10 billion a year on treatments from physical therapy to surgery with the majority offering only partial temporary relief.

As physicians we owe our patients more than “partial temporary relief.” Dr. Trevor Robertson

Herniated Disc’s 101
Herniated disc is a term used to describe a bulging disc that may or may not press against the adjacent spinal nerves. Discs are the spines cushions that flex and bulge dynamically under load. With age or injury the disc may be overloaded causing part to balloon outwards. This state is called a disc herniation or herniated disc.

Symptoms associated with a herniated disc usually involve not only the disc, but the muscles, ligaments, joints and nerves. In most cases the pain experienced is a combination of several of these with each effected structure presenting with different degrees of pain and limitation. This can lead to a complicated overlay of signs and symptoms which are often misdiagnosed resulting in ineffective treatment. Over the past 5 years we have made huge advances in non surgical treatment of herniated discs and a successful outcome depends on a thorough understanding, an accurate diagnosis and inclusive proven treatment.

What you may feel.
Depending on the number of structures affected and the severity thereof, a herniated disc may vary from a constant dull ache or spasm to more serious sharp shooting pains with numbness and weakness into the arms or legs. Pain is usually aggravated with movement and decreases with rest. What to Do
A common misconception with herniated discs is that there is little you can do besides rest or surgery. In reality not doing anything can lead to damage to the underlying nerves resulting in chronic recurring pain with subsequent episodes tending to increase in both duration and severity. On the other hand surgery should be an absolute last resort due to long term follow up studies showing 40% of patients still in pain 1 year after disc surgery.

“I suffered with a herniated disc for almost a year. I had been advised to quit golf and see a surgeon. My MRI showed a large disc herniation and I was sure I was headed for surgery. That’s when my wife recommended I see Dr. Robertson. Although initially skeptical, within 2 weeks I was greatly improved. After a month I was almost pain free. Now 3 months later I am pain free and shopping for new clubs. Thanks Dr. Robertson” R.S.
