Herniated Disc Doctor Los Angeles

Recovery time for slipped discs is ordinarily about a month with treatment. Herniated discs are often quite agonizing. Through herniated disc treatment problems will be alleviated. Most people who suffer a herniated disc heal around a month. By eliminating the types of movement that cause painfulness and by sticking with physical excercise and pain medication programs many herniated disc treatment patients find problems are relieved. Herniated disc treatment methods split into medication, therapy, and surgeries.

Prescribed Medicines

  • Over-the-counter medication: When pain is mild OTC remedies are suitable. These may include naproxen formulated tablets like ibuprofen.
  • Nerve pain medicines: These ease the pain involving damaged nerves. Nerve pain drugs are common because their negative effects are not as severe than narcotics. These consist of amitriptyline, duloxetine, pregabalin and gabapentin.
  • Narcotics: Codeine or an oxycodone-acetaminophen combination are given by doctors when OTC remedies cannot lessen aches and pains. Side-effects could include queasieness, sleep, indecision, and bowel irregularity.
  • Cortisone Injections: Injected into the troubled area to lessen inflammation along with the pain it causes.
  • Epidural injections: Injected in the an area around the spinal cord referred to as the epidural area. Steroids, anesthetics, and anti-inflammatories may be injected to reduce pain and swelling in and around nerves along the spinal cord.
  • Muscle relaxants: Used if muscle spasms are an issue. Dizziness and sleep are common negative effects.

Manual Therapy

  • Ultrasound: high frequency sound to stimulate the affected area and improve circulation of blood
  • Rapid Release Technology: Mechanical vibrations for increasing circulation of blood surrounding the discs
  • Temporary bracing for the neck or lower back to improve structural support
  • ML830 Lasing: Incident wave energy polarizes tissue to a less inflammed condition.
  • Naprapathy: Re-align injured tissue through modification of muscle and tendon imbalances.

Surgical Procedure 

Surgery is necessary to address a slipped disc when disorders continue to persist. When other herniated disc treatment plans don't work, surgery is considered.
