How do we know when someone has a bulging disc? We don' t for sure, unless we order an MRI.
When do you order an MRI? Usually, only after chiropractic fails to deliver results or the symptoms are severe.
I thought you said you have been helping people with bulging discs in downtown SF for 17 years. How do you know they had bulging discs if you helped them and they did not need an MRI?
Geez...I' m giving myself some tough questions here...but that' s OK...here' s how it works...
Patients come to us with cervical or lumbar MRI' s that they had taken before they came to us. Maybe they were told they need neck surgery or low back surgery. Or...maybe they had cortisone, pain or anti-inflammatory medications, or physical therapy that did not work. Hey...maybe they had chiropractic that did not work and they want to try what we do...not all chiropractic is the same.
Then we treat them and help them...and we have been doing this for 17 years.
But even our brand of chiropractic does not help all the patients we treat that have disc herniations, or disc bulges...but we have a next step... nonsurgical spinal decompression. Decompression is a high tech, fancy, highly effective machine that treats disc bulges, disc herniations, and degenerated discs without surgery.
So if we are treating a patient that is not responding to chiropractic and we order an MRI (or they already had one), and there are disc bulges or herniations, we try cervical or lumbar spinal decompression as a next step.
When we do this we help a great majority of this group. Nonsurgical spinal decompression is the new treatment of choice for thousands of chronic back and neck pain sufferers. To learn more about success rates check out the Spinal Decompression Special Report.
