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

Guidelines are the way of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage psoriasis to kidney 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 Plymouth chiropractor to practice and Plymouth chiropractic patients to know that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines keep evolving, and guidelines for neck pain due to cervical disc herniation indicate an 8 to 12 week wait before surgical intervention which is just enough time for Plymouth chiropractic care at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology to potentially thwart Plymouth back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of recent onset neck pain or cervical radiculopathy (arm pain) are presented:  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 propose telling the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to keep active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice!

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons reveals that 76.3% of them use the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This means that they reach the cervical spine through the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach brings with it a higher risk for complications than a straightforward anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons expect 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 in advance of a neck surgery. (2) That allows Plymouth chiropractic care just enough time to ease Plymouth neck pain.
