disc hernation and chiropractor

I have heard lots of negative stuff about chiropractors and not much positive stuff. My husband has just started to go to a chiropractor a few weeks ago and seemed to be feeling slightly better but over the weekend after walking and it got horrible and he's not been able to move for 3 days. We won't have insurance till November so our choices are limited, I really don't know what to do for him. Medications and anything else we can afford to try isn't working. Does anyone have any encouraging stories about beating disc hernation either using alternative medicine or a chiropractor?


  • How was the herniation diagnosed? The problem with having a chiropractor do adjustments with any spine condition is that , unless they are sure that there are no herniations or nerve compression or alignment issues, adjustments can cause further problems.
    You can try having him use ice or heat, whichever helps him the most, 15 minutes on and then off for an hour......and simple stretches to help ease the pain. OTC aleve or advil might help with the inflammation.
    If his condition continues to deteriorate, then seeing his primary doctor or going to the ER if his symptoms worsen is the best suggestion we can make.
