Successful Resolution of Severe Disc Herniation
A male patient, age 45, came for treatment in February 2011. He had been diagnosed with severe disc protrusion (C3/C4) which caused dramatic pain (10 out of 10) radiating down from the neck to the arm below the elbow. It included tingling in two fingers. The pain was caused by the nerve which was bruised by the herniated disc. The patient showed a significant limitation in range of motion.

A combined treatment program was applied. It was composed of chiropractic adjustments, herbal remedies (3 WHITEE patches), ultrasound as well as neuromuscular release (special massage technique). The program was prescribed for a total of three weeks (3 times a week) and two more times afterwards. Upon completion of the 9 sessions the patient started an intersegmental traction program for one month (5 sessions once a week).

The outcome of the treatment has been outstanding. Upon completion of the three-week program the patient had regained his full range of motion. The pain had been completely removed. He returned back to his full duties as a carpenter (physical work). The results have been sustained ever since. The patient has been very happy with the outcome.

Bussiness Hours: 8AM to 6PM (Mo+Wed+Fri), 8AM to 2PM (Tue+Thu)
