Is back surgery the only option for a herniated disc?

January 15, 2015


It can be as painful as it sounds:  a herniated disc, also known as a ruptured disc, is the biggest culprit of low back and leg pain. Unfortunately, this feeling is not foreign to most people. It’s estimated that as many as 80 percent of the population will experience this type of discomfort at some point. The good news is that although it can be quite miserable, most people will find relief with noninvasive approaches. Surgery is usually not the first course of action.

If you suffer with back or neck pain caused by a herniated disc, Dr. Davis of the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages, FL, recommends the DRS Protocol™. The DRS Protocol™, found exclusively in central Florida at The Davis Clinic of Chiropractic, is a comprehensive collection of treatments embraced by selected chiropractors. This effective approach includes spinal decompression and other therapies, centered around the needs of the patient, which will vary. This not a one-size-fits-all approach, but a tailored regimen.

So, what exactly is DRS™?

It’s an acronym that stands for decompression, reduction, and stabilization. The first step involves applying pressure to the injured discs to create negative pressure. In turn, this negative pressure encourages the intake of water, oxygen and nutrients into the trouble area. Put simply, this treatment helps to relieve pressure found inside the disc. The end results are increased blood flow, reduced pain, increased mobility, and tissue healing.

Hundreds of patients have reported success and relief with the DRS Protocol™ treatment for back pain and neck pain conditions. It is especially popular because it’s safe and a great alternative to invasive procedures or a lifetime regimen of pain medications. What’s more, patients don’t have to sacrifice quality of life during treatment.

Patients should take comfort in the fact that a minority of people with lumbar disc herniation actually need surgical intervention. If you’re living in chronic pain day in and day out, there is hope. The Davis Clinic of Chiropractic can provide non-surgical and pain-free treatment options. Call them today at (352) 430-2121, and say hello to relief.
