Dr. Matthew K. Huettl, DC's Expert Contributions
No one can "fix" a herniated disc, but there are a variety of ways to treat a herniation and help the body heal properly once a disc has herniated. The most appropriate treatment depends on several factors. In most cases, conservative care with chiropractic, massage, proper exercises and stretches, as well as other physiotherapy modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, EMS, or cold laser, is more effective than other forms of treatment providing better outcome results. In a small number of cases where severe neurological compromise is present, surgery may be a better option, but there is no way to know without an adequate evaluation. A good physician, whether a chiropractor, osteopath, or allopathic physician should begin by taking a patient history, performing an examination, and IF indicated based on those results get additional diagnostic testing done. That additional testing may include X-rays, an MRI, EMG, or sometimes even a CT scan. Ideally, the most conservative and safest appropriate treatment (chiropractic, massage, physical therapy) will then be utilized before more invasive forms of treatment are considered.
