  • emilixs,

    I know many many people who have suffered back pain from multiple causes and badly herniated discs, who have recovered completely through the use of conservative treatments.

  • My dad is one who is living his life just fine right now with a bulging disk, thanks to simple chiropractic care. His first chiro wanted to put him on disability, Dad didn't want that. I introduced him to our chiro now, and he got Dad in good working shape lol.

    Unfortunately I wasn't so lucky (2 fusions). I did go through about 9 years of chiropractic care though, before mine finally decided to completely pack up and go on vacation lol. Oh how I wish I could still manage with just goin to the chiro lol.

    Hi emilixs.

    I dont know if there are any formal statistics to prove one way or the other, but I do know that many people with spinal issues that do not have surgery and through conservative treatments are able to live a normal life.

    So much depends on what the actual spinal situation is. Herniated discs can in time through treatments almost mend themselves. Now badly herniated discs and nerve root impingement is much harder to resolve and may only be corrected through surgery.

    I am going through the past 8 years doing what ever I can not to have another spinal surgery. I have my ups and downs, but I am determined to win this battle.

    But always remember, all the conservative treatments in the world can only go so far. Constant hard work is required by the patient to really make this happen. Those that rely only on a doctor, a therapist or a medication to keep them going are only going to lose in the end.
