New Roads 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 back pain. There are best-evidence guidelines for most professions from allergy and immunology to urology. Chiropractic care is part of it all as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your New Roads chiropractor to practice and New Roads 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 New Roads chiropractic care at New Roads Chiropractic Center to potentially thwart New Roads back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new start neck pain or cervical radiculopathy (arm pain) are shared:  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 recommend telling the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to keep active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! New Roads Chiropractic Center is committed to New Roads chiropractic patient education. New Roads Chiropractic Center makes sure New Roads patients are familiar with their spinal condition, understand the treatment plan to relieve the pain, and accept their role in achieving, maintaining and supporting 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 New Roads 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 requires them to reach the cervical spine through the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach brings with it a higher risk for complications than just an anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons expect it to be more helpful for arm pain relief. Considering the risk, luckily, the surgeons seek a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient before they operate. (2) That gives New Roads chiropractic care just enough time to relieve New Roads neck pain.

A 2 year follow up with a patient who had a C6-7 cervical disc herniation with radiculopathy arm pain revealed that subjective and objective signs or relief were stable. (4) In the conservative medical care arena, 83% patients with symptomatic cervical spine disc herniation with radiculopathy find relief in about 24 to 36 months with the most progress toward pain relief happening in the first 4 to 6 months.
