Ashburn 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 arthritis 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 Ashburn chiropractor to practice and Ashburn chiropractic patients to see that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines continue to evolve, 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 Ashburn chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn to potentially prevent Ashburn back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new 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! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is committed to Ashburn chiropractic patient education. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn wants to be sure Ashburn patients are familiar with their spinal condition, understand the treatment plan to reduce pain, and accept their role in achieving, keeping and supporting the relief so that they do not have to experience arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or have to undergo Ashburn neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons reveals that 76.3% of them utilize the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This requires them to get at the cervical spine through the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach has more risk for complications than a straightforward anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons think it to be more helpful for arm pain relief. Considering the risk, fortunately, the surgeons look for a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient in advance of a neck surgery. (2) That allows Ashburn chiropractic care just enough time to lessen Ashburn neck pain.

In 8 weeks, Ashburn chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn with Cox Technic can do wonders! In a retrospective review of 39 patients treated with Cox Technic protocols for cervical spine in patients with cervical radiculopathy (arm pain), 13.2 treatments was the mean number of treatments to produce arm pain relief. (3) In 10 weeks, Cox Technic delivers a favorable clinical outcome that lasts! A 2 year follow up with a patient who had a C6-7 cervical disc herniation with radiculopathy arm pain showed that subjective and objective signs or relief were stable. (4) In conservative medicine, 83% patients with symptomatic cervical spine disc herniation with radiculopathy recover in about 24 to 36 months with the most progress toward recovery happening in the first 4 to 6 months. (5) [companyname]] welcomes the challenge of Ashburn neck pain with radiculopathy with this knowledge and positively approaches neck pain and arm pain due to cervical disc herniation with pain relief as the goal.
