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

Guidelines are the way 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 part of it all as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your Preston chiropractor to practice and Preston chiropractic patients to realize that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines continue to evolve, 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 Preston chiropractic care at Chiropractic Associates to potentially thwart Preston back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new start 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 telling the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to be active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Chiropractic Associates is committed to Preston chiropractic patient education. Chiropractic Associates wants to be sure Preston patients know their spinal condition, comprehend the treatment plan to relieve the pain, and accept their role in achieving, 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 need to experience Preston neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons reveals that 76.3% of them implement the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This requires them to get at the cervical spine via the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach brings with it more risk for complications than just an anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons expect it to be more helpful 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 offers Preston chiropractic care just enough time to reduce Preston neck pain.
