Disc Herniations

Trauma Free Treatment

Since lumbar disc injuries are one of the most common causes of lower back pain, having a set of protocols to follow helps the doctor to be more efficient.

Areas for protocol development include:

  • evaluation
  • manipulation
  • therapeutic recommendations

Lumbar Disc Evaluation and Correction

Patients presenting with disc problems can quickly be recognized by their ipsilateral, antalgic gait. Range-of-motion testing will note loss of motion in extension, lateral flexion to the unaffected side and rotation.

“You are definitely a very caring, skilled and enthusiastic doctor and I would appreciate you as my doctor. You are an excellent presenter and were very humble in your presentation. I really enjoyed your approach to treatment of the whole patient. You also empower your patients and do not make them co-dependent upon you. Essentially being a chiropractic aspirin. You strive to truly get the patient well, as opposed to treating the symptoms. We need more dedicated doctors doing the same as you to continue raising the bar on patient care standards.”
