Baton Rouge Chiropractic Non-Surgical Relief for a Disc Herniation in the Neck

July 04, 2017

Guidelines are part 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 in the mix as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your Baton Rouge chiropractor to practice and Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to recognize that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines continue to evolve, and guidelines for neck pain due to cervical disc herniation indicate an 8 to 12 week wait before surgical intervention which is just enough time for Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers to potentially thwart Baton Rouge back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new start 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 informing the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to be active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers is committed to Baton Rouge chiropractic patient education. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers wants to be sure Baton Rouge patients are familiar with their spinal condition, comprehend the treatment plan to reduce pain, and accept their role in achieving, keeping and holding onto the relief so that they don’t have to experience arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or have to experience Baton Rouge neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons shows30 that 76.3% of them implement the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This means that they get at the cervical spine via 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, fortunately, the surgeons seek a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient before they perform a surgery. (2) That offers Baton Rouge chiropractic care just enough time to lessen Baton Rouge neck pain.
