    December 2013 Chiropractic Tip: Disc Herniation of the Neck & Chiropractic

    A recent study in which 50 patients (68% male, average age of 44 years old) with neck pain and moderate to severe arm pain and MRI-confirmed cervical(neck) disc herniations received chiropractic care (treatments were performed 3-5 times a week for the first 2-4 weeks, and then 1-3 times a week thereafter until the patient had reduced symtpoms).  A follow-up was conducted after 3 months.  Pertinent results include:

    • Two weeks after the first treatment, 55.3% of all patients reported that they had significantly improved. At this point, no one reported worsening of their symptoms.
    • At 1 month after the first treatment, 68.9% of individuals were significantly improved, with only one patient reporting being slightly worse (this patient was in the subacute/chronic group).
    • By 3 months,  85.7% of patients noted significant improvement.

     

    The results speak for themselves....if you or someone you know is suffering from a disc hernation, make sure Chiropractic care is considered. It' safe, effective, and involves NO DRUGS OR SURGERY!!!

      I want to create a blog that has a creative layout like what you find on MySpace, but with more traffic. I'm not a fan of the Blogger site. . . Any suggestions?.
