We have been providing treatment for herniated cervical discs in San Francisco for over 22 years.
Typically, patients will present with neck, arm, or hand pain. There can be associated numbness, tingling or weakness in the upper extremities. Sometimes there is no neck pain at all, just arm or hand pain. It is not uncommon for a herniated disc in the neck to be misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome.
So how do you know if you have a herniated cervical disc?
Well, the gold standard for diagnosing a herniated disc is a MRI.
Many of our spinal decompression patients come to us with MRI in hand looking for nonsurgical solutions to their problem. Other times, we end up ordering the MRI after conservative chiropractic fails to deliver results.
We have a “next step” if chiropractic does not achieve a favorable outcome with cervical disc herniation. Our next step is nonsurgical spinal decompression with the DRX9000c. The DRX9000c is designed and built to treat herniated discs in the neck non-surgically. The results are outstanding.
We have been incorporating cervical disc decompression into our herniated disc treatment protocol for about 9 years now. In the event decompression is not successful, which is rare, the patient is left whole and can explore other treatment options, including neck surgery.
