slipped disc chiropractic treatment

Slipped Disc Chiropractic treatment in Sydney

A slipped disc is a very painful medical condition which is the result of the injury. In this the vertebra which is the cushion between the bones in the spine is injured and moved from its position. This displacement presses the vertebra against the nerve leading to its inflammation. At times the pain is so severe that it extends to the leg. You can try out chiropractic treatment to cure this pain. The chiropractor will first get complete information about your illness, its history along with a complete medical examination including orthopedic and neurological tests before deciding on the treatment.


Chiropractors use a variety of methods to arrive at the diagnosis. Not only do they go in for conventional medical texts such as x-rays and MRI's if required. Along with it they also use certain other diagnostic methods which are unique to chiropractic care. These include motion and static palpation where they perform tests on the muscle after palpating them to check for pelvic balance and find out if any leg is shorter than the other. Besides this they also use postural analysis to check the patient's posture. After all these tests have been done then only does the chiropractor decide on the treatment.


Next step for the chiropractor is to analyze the findings of the various tests that have been conducted. With these tests reports he decides whether there is a disc injury or not? If yes then what kind of injury and what is its intensity. There are cases when chiropractic care is not suited to the patient. Particularly in cases where the patient has suffered from excessive damage with advanced loss of strength, sensation, and reflexes. In such a case the chiropractor first refers the patient to a spine surgeon.


Chiropractors treat disc problems with very low thrust techniques being careful all the time. They give their patients instructions to carry out at home these include stretching exercises and use of ice and heat either together or separately. Through out their program they keep taking a feed back from the patient. They also keep having neurological and chiropractic tests to compare and evaluate the changes in patient's condition. If they find that the patient is not responding to the treatment then they refer the patient to a spine specialist.
