Many patients have experienced acute, chronic or disabling pain due to a disc injury or disc-related symptoms. For those patients, they implement very specific exercises and stretches called The McKenzie Method. This process helps centralize the pain, change the spine and relax the muscles.
The goal is to go beyond simply reducing pain. As a patient, they will work with you diligently to develop regular stretching and core strengthening routines, with respect to your desire and commitment level. Trigger point therapy (self-myofascial release) also plays a crucial role in preventing injury in the future and recovery after exercise and competitions. Implementation of an individualized stretching/core strengthening routine can keep you injury-free, enhance your performance and dramatically increase your quality of life.
Cervical Decompression is a therapy that is occasionally used for the treatment of neck pain and radiculopathy. This is a gentle, pain free mechanism to reduce pressure on the cervical spine, discs and nerves. We live in a “flexion” world, when a majority of our day is most likely adding significant stress to our cervical spine, muscles and nerves, in turn causing a ride range of symptoms. Mechanical cervical traction helps return our cervical spine to the natural curvature.
