We have been providing treatment for back and neck pain in Bergen County since 1992.
There is a lot of information out there on how to diagnose and treat a herniated disc in the low back. Some of it is good and some not so good. Our recommendations come from over a quarter century of front line experience, as well as our relationships with surgeons, radiologists and patients.
What most people don’t realize is that a herniated disc is very common. In fact, many people have them and do not even realize it. And when you are diagnosed with a herniated disc it is not the end of the world. And, it does not mean you automatically need back or neck surgery.
Often, a herniated disc will heal on it’s own. It just depends on the nature and severity of the condition and the patients overall health profile. All cases are different.
One thing for sure. Chiropractic adjustments should be considered as the #1 treatment option. This has been proven over and over again. Prior to anyone surgery non-invasive approaches should be tried first, because once you “cut” you can’t “uncut”.
It is common for people with what is called “failed back surgery syndrome” to enter our office. The number one factor on whether we can help these individuals or not is dependent on what
was done to their spine in the operation. Did they have screws, mesh-nettings, rods etc installed. Any hardware makes it difficult for us to further treat, which again is why it is best to try every option before going under he knife.
In the event that chiropractic adjustments fail to deliver favorable outcomes there is a logical “next step”. It’s called nonsurgical spinal decompression. The machine we use is the DRX9000. The DRX9000 is designed and built to treat herniated and bulging discs in the lumbar spine nonsurgically. It is considered the gold standard for drugless disc treatment.

So, if you have been diagnosed with a herniated or bulging disc in the low back, what should you do?
Our recommendation is that you find a clinic that has both chiropractic and spinal decompression. Our office is located at 161 N. Franklin Tpke in Ramsey, NJ. It’s right off Route 17 and easy to locate. In our office we treat with traditional chiropractic, cold laser therapy and spinal decompression as well as a host of other treatment options.
