Avoid Surgery for Sciatica and herniated disc using Chiropractic care
Sciatica and herniated disc are two painful conditions that often require surgery for a cure. Unavailability of proper medication for these conditions often necessitates the surgery which has its own disadvantages to the patients.
Thankfully, according to various medical researchers, several patients suffering from herniated disc and sciatica can prevent surgery with the chiropractic treatments. One of the noteworthy revelations in the same field is from Mayo Clinic, one of the reputed medical research groups.
Mayo Clinic recently unveiled that a significant percentage of sciatica and herniated disc patients can receive chiropractic care to avoid the need of surgery altogether. In a clinical research in year 2010, over 60% of the patients who would have required surgery, began doing well after receiving the chiropractic treatment for their sciatica and herniated disc disorders. Indeed, the chiropractic treatment also helped people who are suffering from other disorders related to their spines.
Sciatica and herniated disc, both are often misdiagnosed due to the similarity in their symptoms. Although their symptoms are interconnected, they are completely different disorders. Sciatica is actually a pain that originates due to the Sciatic nerve which flows through the spine into your buttocks and legs. However, herniated disc is characterized by a disorder with your disc. The internal nucleus pulposis presses the disc and results in tearing of the annulus fibrosis that is present outside of the disc. This condition usually occurs due to a intense impact or twist caused to your spine.
The worst part for these disorders is that you need to undergo a surgical procedure if you choose the traditional medication. However, with chiropractic treatment you need to regularly visit a good DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) who will use his techniques to figure out the origin of your pain. After your assessment, you will be given a plan that you need to follow ensuring zero professional negligence by the DC. Depending upon the severity of the symptoms, duration of your chiropractic treatment is decided. Another good thing about chiropractic is, it’s free from the negative side-effects of medicines as it does not use drugs (or uses them minimally) and instead, relies on the natural healing capabilities of your body.
