Herniated discs are painful and prevent you from living your best life. It is important to seek treatment for herniated discs, as they can worsen and cause severe pain. At New Life Laser, serving Northern VA, we offer natural treatment methods for herniated discs and other ailments. Dr. M. Scott White, D.C. is committed to alleviating your pain and helping you heal. Our goal is to help you return to a healthy, happy life.
How Herniated Discs Develop
Your spine includes a series of discs. When a layer of the vertebrae becomes damaged, you may experience disc herniation. This means you could experience a variety of symptoms, including tingling, limb issues, joint pain, and weakness.
Herniated discs can happen to anybody, and they are especially common with athletes and those who are active. The everyday stress of life can also cause a variety of problems, and those who are obese or already have an injury are more likely to experience disc herniation. If you are already living with spinal degeneration, hip degeneration, or knee degeneration, you may be at higher risk as well.
Treatment for Herniated Discs
When you first visit us, Dr. White will look for the root cause of your pain and any underlying conditions. We may perform a physical exam and ask about your medical history and symptoms. After a diagnosis, our specialist will create a personalized treatment plan for you. This can include a variety of techniques, such as regenerative medicine and laser therapy.
Regenerative medicine works to promote natural healing in the body. Laser therapy also promotes healing and reduces inflammation. We offer deep tissue robotic laser therapy and MLS laser therapy. We can also use spinal decompression to relieve herniated disc pain. Our team will help determine what treatment is best.
What Happens after Treatment
After treatment, you may not have much downtime at all. It is important to continue with your treatments so that your body can fully heal and recover. Dr. White will guide you on how to stay healthy and avoid future injuries or recurring pain, as well.
