That all depends. Every patient is different. Herniated discs can be treated by MD’s with drugs or surgery. As chiropractors we like to try a natural approach first. There are gentle treatments for patients in a lot of pain. The stronger treatments called spinal adjustments are if you are only in moderate pain. There are also lumbar decompression machines to help with herniated discs. I prefer the DRX 9000 that I have in my office.
