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

Guidelines are part of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage arthritis to kidney disease to neck 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 offer a base for physicians like your Auburn chiropractor to practice and Auburn chiropractic patients to recognize that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines keep evolving, and guidelines for neck pain due to cervical disc herniation point to an 8 to 12 week wait before surgical intervention which is just enough time for Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. to potentially thwart Auburn back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of recent onset 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 recommend informing the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to be active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is committed to Auburn chiropractic patient education. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. wants to be sure Auburn patients are familiar with their spinal condition, comprehend the treatment plan to reduce pain, and accept their role in getting, maintaining and supporting the relief so that they do not have to experience arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or have to undergo Auburn neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons shows30 that 76.3% of them utilize 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 has more risk for complications than just an anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons believe it to be more effective 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 allows Auburn chiropractic care just enough time to relieve Auburn neck pain.

In 8 weeks, Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. with Cox Technic can amaze!

A 2 year follow up with a patient who had a C6-7 cervical disc herniation with radiculopathy arm pain showed that subjective and objective signs or relief were stable. (4) In conservative medicine, 83% patients with symptomatic cervical spine disc herniation with radiculopathy find relief in about 24 to 36 months with the most progress toward recovery occurring in the first 4 to 6 months.
