By MRI, and by symptoms, my diagnosis is a herniated disc at C5-C6. At age 76, my cervical spine has numerous bulging discs, and narrowed disc spaces, , My orthopedic doctor has referred me to an anesthetist for an epidural steroid shot(s). I've gone to my chiropractor hoping for a simpler remedy and prompter pain relief while waiting for an appointment with the anesthetist. My chiropractor has recommended a series (10) of decompression treatments, three a week. I have confidence in my Chiropractor. I'm wondering if anyone else has had success with decompression treatments as a remedy for a herniated cervical disc. I am told that decompression will probably alleviate the left shoulder and arm pain and partial numbness, particularly in the little finger, and that it will also be beneficial for the entire cervical spine. I am posting in hope of obtaining comments regarding the benefits of decompression treatments to remedy a herniated cervical disc, and thanking those responding in advance.
