At Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers, neck injuries from such unforeseen occurrences such as automobile accidents, falls, or any injury are nursed back to health carefully and frequently are relieved gently and safely. This class of injuries can be serious, causing spinal cord swelling and neurological damage to body function which ends up causing neck pain and arm pain. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is happy to hand out some good news with Baton Rouge patients about non-surgical treatment!

Cervical spine disc herniationNew studies are demonstrating that when cervical spine discs herniate to bring about such damage, even injuries with spinal cord damage (myelopathy), regression of the disc herniation allows recovery of the nerve damage. This is good news because in the past, it was frequently ascertained that such damage ended up in surgery and oftentimes chronic, unresolved symptoms for patients.

In the latest study, researchers investigated nineteen patients who had minor cervical spinal cord damage due to disc herniations in their necks. These patients exhibited spontaneous regression of the disc after non-surgical, conservative care of their injury. MRI studies even prove the regression of the disc herniation! It took 7.5 months average time for the regression to happen. The damage within the spinal cord was seen on MRI in 79% of the cases before treatment and in 47% of the patients at follow-up. The area of the spinal cord also grew following conservative care.

So, if you are dealing with neck pain, arm pain, or other nerve damage from an injury such as a car accident, fall, or other trauma, contact Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers. This report by researchers is positive evidence for the conservative, non-surgical care given by Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers. Spontaneous regression of cervical disc herniations in 19 patients with mild cervical myelopathy shown on MRI and demonstrated with neurological status improvement amplifies the cry for non-surgical care of disc herniations. The bottomline excitement for Baton Rouge neck pain patients is that spinal cord damage reverses with cervical disc herniation regression and no surgery!
