It is difficult to calculate the millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering every day from lower back pain. Dr. Brian at Delta Chiropractic Associates Inc. in Escanaba knows that there can be many causes for lower back pain, among them are improper sitting or lifting, trauma, over-exertion, or inherited spinal abnormalities. Chiropractic adjustments help normalizes function to reduce painful symptoms.
When vertebrae lose their normal motion or position, the soft pulpy center of the disc can bulge or rupture. “When a disc bulges it can cause pressure on the spinal cord or nearby roots that exit the spine and causes numbness, tingling, or pain running down into the leg,” Dr. Brian explains.
Surgical treatment may involve cutting away the bulging tissue. This method is often unnecessary and rarely addresses the underline structural cause of the problem, not to mention the dangers of anesthesia and the formation of scar tissue. Conservative chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery as supported by many research projects.
Dr. Brian states, “Chiropractic care attempts to restore normal motion and position of spinal bones. This functional improvement often reduces symptoms, leading to improved health.” A growing number of scientific experts are recognizing the simplicity and success of the chiropractic approach – along with people who want to avoid surgery!
What if you already have spinal surgery? It is possible for a chiropractor to adjust someone’s spinal column if a surgery has been performed. Even though the surgery may have permanently altered the spinal, chiropractic care is still an option.
After a thorough examination and complete explanation, if you are a candidate for chiropractic, Dr. Brian will design a care program unique to your spinal problem. Disc related conditions are serious and may require a program of regular visits. Doctors of Chiropractic regularly consult with neurologists, radiologists and orthopedic specialists when designing care programs for patient with disc involvement.
