Can Chiropractic Help Bulging Discs in the Back? Edwin’s Story Tells All
If you’ve ever had lower back pain or bulging discs, then you know it can be a frustrating problem to get rid of. Maybe the pain runs down your leg to your knees, or even down to your feet. You’ve tried everything, physical therapy, medications, exercises, etc., and you still haven’t got the results you have been hoping for. If this is a problem you’ve been struggling with, you’re not alone. Today we’re discussing, can chiropractic help bulging discus in the back?
Many people think they have tried everything when it comes to lower back pain and healing disc injuries. But really, the one thing they haven’t tried is finding someone that can determine the cause of their pain and develop a plan to correct it.
Can a chiropractor help bulging discs in back? Read on to find out how a chiropractor that specializes in Chiropractic BioPhysics can help with healing disc injuries and relieve back pain.
Healing Disc Injuries…Why Nothing Seems to Work
If you’ve had back pain, disc injuries, or bulging discs in back, you’ve probably seen a doctor who gave you some meds to make the pain go away. Maybe the pain subsided for a little while, but it came back. Or maybe you got massages, and while they feel good at the time, it doesn’t help your pain. You may have gone through physical therapy and again, no relief. Maybe you’ve even been so desperate for the pain to go away that you agreed to get injections.
But nothing is working. It’s frustrating. You feel like you’ve run out of options and you’re not really sure what to do next. The only thing you’re sure of is that you don’t want to continue living in pain.
The reason you aren’t finding relief is that these “solutions” aren’t fixing any of your problems. They’re putting a “band aid” on the problem and while the bandaid may cover it up for a little while, the pain always comes back.
You need someone that can find the root cause of your pain and work to correct it.
How can a chiropractor help with healing disc injuries?
Chiropractors that specialize in Chiropractic BioPhysics use science to find where your pain is coming from and then develop a plan specifically made to correct your problem so you can be pain-free and live optimally.
The sciences used in Chiropractic BioPhysics are biology, physiology, physics, geometry, and anatomy, and they’ve been proven to work.
First, you’ll get a thorough examination, including x-rays, so that your chiropractor can examine you to see what’s going on inside and outside, to get the whole picture.
From there, you’ll get a plan that will not only alleviate your pain but also work to correct your problem so that your body can work like it’s supposed to. Your plan might include exercises, spinal remodeling, traction, stretches, and regular adjustments. You’ll feel better and your body will work like it’s supposed to.
It works. And here is just one person’s story about how it worked for him.
Here is a story about Edwin, a patient that came to Align Wellness Center about a year ago for this same problem.
When Edwin came in…
Edwin came in with an unlivable pain in his lower back. The pain was radiating down his leg, causing numbness and tingling to his whole right side. He described it as aching, sharp, deep stabbing, and throbbing. It impacted everything he tried to do, whether it was sitting down, driving, getting out of the car, playing with his kids, yard work, or just standing up.
Edwin had tried everything…other chiropractic offices, massages, medications, prescription medications, physical therapy, and even injections, and nothing took care of his problem.
That’s when Edwin came to us. When he came in, he was frustrated from trying what seemed like everything and having no results. He didn’t know what else to do.
What did we do for Edwin?
We did a thorough evaluation of Edwin. We looked at his problem from the inside out, looking at the biomechanics and structure of how he stands up and becomes upright.
We took this information and developed a personally tailored protocol to combat the challenges that were driving these problems.
After giving him this personalized care plan, Edwin followed through just as we recommended. His plan included exercises, chiropractic care, and some track running.
Over the next three months, he started seeing his life beginning to return. He began feeling better. He started working better. He started moving better and was able to return to work. He started feeling like himself again and could walk and play with his kids. He even got back into golf.
Edwin had his life back.
Because Edwin followed through on his plan, he not only put a stop to his pain, but he also made a correction to his spine. This is an outstanding outcome that allows Edwin to live his life pain-free and be able to move optimally.
Recently he shared that he just had his best round of golf in years. Just in the last three months, he has been able to remodel his kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms. This is all possible because of the correction he was able to make to his spine.
All of this was done by a guy who, a year ago, was in unbearable pain and couldn’t even get out of his house.
