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

Guidelines are part of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage psoriasis to heart disease to back pain. There are best-evidence guidelines for most professions from allergy and immunology to urology. Chiropractic care is in the mix as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your San Jose chiropractor to practice and San Jose chiropractic patients to see that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines keep evolving, 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 San Jose chiropractic care at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions to potentially thwart San Jose back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new onset neck pain or cervical radiculopathy (arm pain) are shared:  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 advise informing the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to keep active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is devoted to San Jose chiropractic patient education. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions makes sure San Jose patients are familiar with their spinal condition, understand the treatment plan to relieve the pain, and accept their role in achieving, maintaining and supporting the relief so that they don’t have to experience arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or have to experience San Jose neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons shows30 that 76.3% of them utilize the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This means that they reach the cervical spine via the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach brings with it more risk for complications than a straightforward anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons think it to be more effective for arm pain relief. Considering the risk, luckily, the surgeons seek a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient before they operate. (2) That gives San Jose chiropractic care just enough time to ease San Jose neck pain.
