Having a Herniated or Bulging Disc is a Living Hell…

If you're here reading this, there is a high probability you're grappling with relentless lower back or neck pain that hasn't responded to “traditional” care or is dramatically affecting your daily life.

Chances are you’re not getting a good night of rest…

You’re unproductive at work…

You can’t exercise or live your active lifestyle…

The pain is so bad that it’s affecting your mood…

When the pain, stiffness, or discomfort persist, it's natural to assume it will resolve on its own or attribute it to common factors such as an uncomfortable sleeping position or age-related wear and tear. However, as time goes on, the pain persists without any signs of fading away.

Sound familiar?

Many patients facing herniated or bulging discs have been told that surgery is their only option. But the truth is, complete recovery is possible without surgery. Research and our practice's experience support this fact. Don't fall for the misconception that surgery is the sole solution.

Can you relate to this experience, too?

Another common misconception is a belief that their herniated disc will magically disappear overnight, leading individuals to rely on rest and painkillers for relief.  Unfortunately, this approach often falls short, leaving people to return to their doctors after weeks of discomfort with little improvement. They may then find themselves prescribed stronger medications, advised to rest more, or even recommended injections or unnecessary surgery.

Has this frustrating cycle happened to you?

The truth is, there are various reasons why a herniated disc llingers longer than it should. It can be bewildering when different sources offer conflicting explanations.

While you may believe your pain originated from a specific incident, such as lifting something heavy or sleeping awkwardly, it's crucial to get a thorough evaluation from an expert that specializes in the non-invaive treatment of the spine.

The Signs and Symptoms of a Herniated Disc

Having a hernaited disc has some of the most intense and varying symptoms. Because the nerves of the spine are impacted, you can have an array of signs and symptoms. It all depends on where the herniated disc is at in the spine.

The most common signs and symptoms are:

Lower Back Pain

Neck Pain

Arm and Shoulder Pain

Groin Pain

Pain in the Buttock

Pain in the Shin & Down the Leg

Numbness and Tingling

Weakness in the Arms or Legs

An approach invented by our owner, Dr. Scott Gray. The premise behind everything focuses on pinpointing the original CAUSE of your injury, pain, or stiffness, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

Dry needling is an advanced technique that uses very small needles to puncture the skin around stiff muscles. This treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain, muscle tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

A hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure and massage to the myofascial connective tissues. Your therapist will gently massage the fascia and feel for stiff or tightened areas to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Your stability is like a muscle that you can make stronger to increase the stability of your joints. These exercises will bring not only relief to your SI joint but permanently keep the pain from coming back.

A hands-on manual therapy technique that combines moving and jolting joints, massage, exercise, and physical therapy. It helps relieve pressure on the joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.

An approach that helps increase your overall mobility and strength to ensure your pain stays away long after rehab. Increased strength & mobility will help you heal your current pain or injury, prevent future injuries, improve your posture, prevent chronic diseases, and protect bone health.

  • You thought that if you waited long enough, the pain would diminish and go away.

  • You took the prescribed drugs and didn’t like how they made you feel, AND they only masked the pain temporarily.  It always seemed to come back. You were told back pain is just a part of life and that you just have to deal with it.

  • You looked for help online, but the exercises you found didn’t help…or even made things worse!

  • You tried other treatments—like massage—but nothing changed at all, and you ended up wasting money and time.

  • You figured you could just rest your back for a while, thinking it would calm down, but not only did the pain not go away, you felt like life was just passing you by while you sat around waiting to be pain-free.
