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

Guidelines are part of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage arthritis to kidney disease to neck pain. There are best-evidence guidelines for most professions from allergy and immunology to urology. Chiropractic care is part of it all as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your Vancouver chiropractor to practice and Vancouver chiropractic patients to realize 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 Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre to potentially thwart Vancouver 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 be active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Vancouver Spine Care Centre is devoted to Vancouver chiropractic patient education. Vancouver Spine Care Centre wants to be sure Vancouver patients know their spinal condition, comprehend the treatment plan to relieve the pain, and embrace their role in achieving, maintaining and holding onto the relief so that they don’t have to suffer with arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or need to undergo Vancouver neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons shows30 that 76.3% of them utilize the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This requires them to reach the cervical spine via the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach has a higher 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 before they operate. (2) That offers Vancouver chiropractic care just enough time to relieve Vancouver neck pain.

In 8 weeks, Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre with Cox Technic can amaze! In a retrospective review of 39 patients treated with Cox Technic protocols for cervical spine in patients with cervical radiculopathy (arm pain), only 13.2 treatment visits were needed to give patients arm pain relief. (3) In 10 weeks, Cox Technic delivers a favorable clinical outcome that keeps going! 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 the conservative medical care arena, 83% patients with symptomatic cervical spine disc herniation with radiculopathy find relief in about 24 to 36 months with the most progress toward recovery occurring in the first 4 to 6 months. (5) [companyname]] welcomes the challenge of Vancouver neck pain with radiculopathy with this knowledge and positively deals with neck pain and arm pain due to cervical disc herniation with pain relief as the goal. The Vancouver treatment plan for cervical spine pain is ready for you!
