LUMBER DISC CONDITIONS
At Connecticut Family Chiropractic, we have helped thousands of patients with lumbar disc herniation and lumbar disc degeneration as well as lumbar osteoarthritis. Low back pain with lumbar nerve root compression is usually a very debilitating condition. Lumbar disc herniation is often associated with severe lower back pain with radiation into one or both legs, numbness, tingling, and even at times leg muscular weakness. Some patients report having recent injuries to the lower back and some report injuries to the lower back years prior and some report no injury at all. The mechanism of onset for this condition is most often due to repetitive microtrauma, occurring often times in patients who frequently bend, frequently sit for long periods, and frequently lift.
In certain instances trauma such as violent rear-end collision in auto accidents can also precipitate lumbar disc syndrome that may be responsive to DRX9000 treatment. At times, gentle chiropractic adjustment or manipulation may also be utilized to help quicken the results of the lumbar DRX9000.
The chiropractic doctors at Connecticut Family Chiropractic will perform a complete examination beginning with a detailed history of the condition as well as past histories related to the condition followed by a thorough physical examination including range of motion testing, neurological testing to see to determine if there are positive neurological findings indicative of more significant nerve root compression. Often times, x-ray examination will be performed as well as lumbar MRI examination, which will indicate the exact nature and level of the lumbar disc herniation and other important findings.
