Cervical Spine Disc Surgery


Cervical Spine Disc Surgery

Cervical spine disc surgery may seem like the only option when symptoms of pain, numbness and sensory deterioration are threatening to decrease your daily quality of life. The cervical region of the spine, which includes the neck and upper back, can be an especially sensitive region because each movement of our head also involves the cervical vertebrae. Before deciding on neck disc surgery, however, make sure you have explored conservative and alternative treatment options.

One option that could be an alternative to spinal disc surgery is chiropractic work. A chiropractor is someone who seeks to relieve pain by focusing on the neural and musculoskeletal systems of the body. In fact, chiropractors operate on the theory that most somatic conditions are a result of misaligned or shifted vertebrae. A chiropractor will focus on your spine and the surrounding muscles and ligaments by checking for reflexes, sensations and deterioration. A specific technique that may be used is called “Flexion-Distraction,” which is when the chiropractor uses gentle pumping and stretching motions to ease the nucleus of a degenerated disc back into its central position, thereby easing the disc away from nerves.

Acupuncture and acupressure are other alternatives to neck disc surgery. While acupuncture uses multiple needles to balance the energy forces of the body, acupressure only uses manual palpation to target the energy forces. Both are said to increase endorphins levels, which are considered the body’s own pain-relief treatment.

The above homeopathic treatments will not work for all patients. Although these can offer temporary pain relief and, for mild cases of cervical disc degeneration, may provide enough pain relief that the patient will not need to undergo back disc surgery, patients with chronic, debilitating symptoms may need to consider cervical spine disc surgery.
