We have helped many patients who have suffered from disc herniations and radicular pain. Many studies show that chiropractic works just as well as spinal injections, which carry risks.
More and more, it has been recognized in the medical literature that conservative treatment works best for many cases of lumbar disc herniation. For patients with far-lateral, or extreme lateral herniation, however, the effectiveness of conservative care is less certain. We look at the outcomes of nonsurgical management of a client with far-lateral disc herniation.
Epidural steroid injections are often used to treat disc herniations and back pain. Unfortunately, these injections only provide short-term relief, and come with side effects like dizziness, headache, and weakening of the spinal bones and muscles. They can even result in fractures of the spinal bones!
