How I Beat My Disc Herniation!
As we head into the month of March and ice-skate past the blizzard of 2008, we are longing for those warm days again. It will soon be time to go outside and work in the garden, play sports with our kids, and maybe even go on a family vacation down south. That is unless of course you have been diagnosed with a disc herniation and are suffering from severe neck or back pain.
This was the situation for Marylin DesJardin just a year ago. In Marylin’s words, “I could hardly get out of my car at the end of my work day! I had a bulging disc and I felt like I was ninety years old! I could not even turn over in bed at night without moaning in pain. I thought I was going to have to change my job due to the physical nature of my job, and I could feel myself getting worse and worse.”
Marylin had tried all of the typical medical treatments for back pain, but none of them seemed to work. She did eventually find one that did work, but we’ll get to that a little bit later. The reason that she was not responding was due to her bulging disc. Degenerated, bulging, and herniated disc’s are some of the most complicated cases to correct back to health.
You will have a good idea if you have a bulging disc by the symptoms that you feel. If you have a bulging disc in your neck you will typically suffer from: Neck Pain or Stiffness, Headaches or Migraines, Arm or Hand Pain, and Numbness. Now if you have a bulging disc in your low back, you will suffer from: Low Back Pain or Stiffness, Sciatica (Pain in the back of the leg) or Foot pain, Foot and/or Leg numbness.
In your spine you have 24 moveable bones. In between each bone is a disc that provides a cushion, like a pillow. When those cushions degenerate, bulge, and herniate, they become very painful. Unfortunately your disc’s do not have any blood supply which means that they will not heal very well. This is why it is so difficult to heal the disc after it herniates, degenerates, and bulges.
It doesn’t take a lot to herniate a disc. Although it is possible to injure your disc in a slip, fall, or accident…typically it comes from wear & tear (repetitive motions) over a period of time. This injury will cause the disc (the cushion) to flatten out which decreases mobility as well as decrease the nutrients that go to your disc to heal the damaged areas. So, if you ignore these problems, or mask them with drugs…well, you can probably guess what will happen.
The best way to handle a disc herniation is just like Marylin did. Here is what she had to say after she decided to do a new therapy called spinal decompression: “Everything has changed. After Spinal Decompression therapy, I feel 100% better, I’ve gotten rid of the awful pain, and I guess I’ll be at my job for another eighteen years!”
Marylin is just one of thousands that have benefited from spinal decompression therapy. Although spinal decompression is not for everyone, Dr Gray is opening up his clinic on Saturday, March 22nd for a reservation only FREE Decompression Discovery Day where you can find out if you qualify for this new therapy. Dr Gray can only have 20 guest’s at his Decompression Discovery Day, therefore it is a first come, first serve basis.
