CERVICAL DISC HERNIATION

Cervical disc herniation occurs as weakened discs bulge or herniate, compressing or irritating a nerve.  The compromised nerve can cause severe pain and other problems in the neck and mid-back, as well as the arms and/or hands. Proper diagnostics, which commonly involve imaging (x-ray or MRI) and diagnostic evaluation of the uniqueness of the disc issue, is necessary in order to determine what course of care is recommended and most appropriate. There are times where disc problems have progressed beyond what can be treated with Chiropractic techniques or even Atlas Orthogonal. We offer the non-surgical alternative of Spinal Disc Decompression.   Unfortunately, there are times that surgery is the only alternative for disc-related problems.
