San Francisco Chiropractor and Herniated Disc Doctor Comments:
I have been helping patients with headaches and herniated discs in the neck for almost 18 years now in downtown San Francisco. Of course...not everyone with a headache has a herniated disc...and not everyone with a herniated disc in the neck has a headache...but many have both.
Over the years I have attracted headache and migraine patients to my clinics because I myself once suffered from debilitating headaches...so I can relate to their problems. However...sometimes chiropractic care would not work...or massage...or acupuncture...or pain pills...or anything for that matter. This was rare...but it would be very frustrating.
I would often times send my headache patients out for an MRI of the neck to rule out herniated discs or spinal stenosis when they were not responding to traditional therapies. What I started finding more often than not was a herniated disc in the neck. Well...up until about 4 years ago there was still nothing more I could do...but at least we knew what the problem was and I could refer out to a spine surgeon. This was not what patients wanted to hear.
Then came nonsurgical spinal decompression of the cervical spine with the DRX9000c. At first I was very skeptical that a machine could fix a disc herniation...but it did. It did not get 100% resolution on everyone it did help...but we experienced life changing results enough of the time for me to make cervical decompression a key component of my chiropractic practice.
We are the only clinic in downtown San Francisco to offer cervical spinal decompression with the DRX9000c. Sure more downtown SF chiropractic clinics will come along with the DRX9000c...but they will never have as much as experience as we do...and experience matters, believe me.
Since the beginning we have done thousands of spinal decompression sessions on hundreds of patients...and the outcomes are outstanding. There is an art to managing cervical disc herniation patients with the DRX9000c and we have become very comfortable with the process.
So, YES there can be a connection between headaches and disc herniations...disc herniations can cause them. And...there is a potential solution to your disc herniation problem that does not require surgery...the DRX9000c.
Hey...regular chiropractic should be tried first..at least that' s what we do at Executive Express Chiropractic. But the DRX9000c is our "Ace in the hole"...we now have a next step...and for that we are thankful...and so are our cervical disc patients.
