Sandy Springs Chiropractic Non-Surgical Relief for a Disc Herniation in the Neck

Guidelines are the way of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage arthritis to heart disease to neck pain. There are best-evidence guidelines for most professions from allergy and immunology to urology. Chiropractic care is in the mix as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your Sandy Springs chiropractor to practice and Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to recognize that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines keep evolving, and guidelines for neck pain due to cervical disc herniation point to an 8 to 12 week wait before surgical intervention which is just enough time for Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center to potentially prevent Sandy Springs back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new onset neck pain or cervical radiculopathy (arm pain) are presented:  Supervised exercise with manual therapy. Exercise and manual therapy before medicine for neck pain. Acupuncture for neck pain. Traction for cervical radiculopathy. NSAIDs (oral or topical) and tramadol after careful consideration for both neck pain and cervical radiculopathy.  The guidelines also suggest telling the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to keep active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Cross Chiropractic Center is devoted to Sandy Springs chiropractic patient education. Cross Chiropractic Center wants to be sure Sandy Springs patients know their spinal condition, comprehend the treatment plan to reduce pain, and accept their role in getting, keeping and holding onto the relief so that they don’t have to suffer with arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or have to experience Sandy Springs neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons reveals that 76.3% of them use the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This means that they reach the cervical spine through the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach has a higher risk for complications than just an anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons believe it to be more helpful for arm pain relief. In view of the risk, fortunately, the surgeons seek a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient before they operate. (2) That allows Sandy Springs chiropractic care just enough time to lessen Sandy Springs neck pain.
