Help Heal Your Herniated Disc With Laser Therapy

laser therapy on backAlso known as a slipped, ruptured or bulging disc, a herniated disc occurs when the gel-like center of a disc bursts through a weak area in the tough outer wall. It’s like the filling squeezed out of a jelly doughnut. When the disc material touches or compresses a spinal nerve, back or leg pain, numbness or tingling may result.

Discs don’t have a direct blood supply like most areas of the body. This can mean a slow healing process if at all without outside help. By stimulating the pumping mechanism through adjustments, spinal decompression, disc decompression, traction, exercises, and other treatments, you can improve the integrity of the disc. The Class 4 laser can help speed that process up as well.

Common Symptoms of Herniated Disc

  • Lower back pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling in the spine
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sciatic pain

This common disc condition can also cause a lot of irritation in your lumbar spine, affecting your daily life and limiting your range of motion.

The conventional medical approach to this disc condition includes oral medications or steroid injections to reduce pain and inflammation, or even surgery.

Experience Faster Healing

In addition to providing chiropractic care to address painful disc conditions, we also offer Class IV laser therapy combined with spinal disc decompression at Parkside Health & Wellness Center. More powerful than a cold laser, the Class IV laser can penetrate up to 4 cm and is 24 times more powerful than a cold laser.

The laser stimulates those disc tissues, so if they’ve been damaged, herniated or torn, they can heal faster, rather than just on its own. Because there’s a lack of blood supply, they tend to heal slower. The laser increases the speed of healing.

In addition to accelerating healing time, laser therapy is an ideal modality as non-invasive and a drug-free treatment. You can experience pain relief and heal your damaged discs faster without drugs or surgery.
