New York Chiropractic Non-Surgical Relief for a Disc Herniation in the Neck

Guidelines are the way of healthcare today. There are best-evidence guidelines for everything from how to manage psoriasis to kidney disease to neck pain. There are best-evidence guidelines for most professions from allergy and immunology to urology. Chiropractic care is part of it all as is back pain and neck pain management. Such guidelines present a base for physicians like your New York chiropractor to practice and New York chiropractic patients to recognize that  they are being treated with the best evidenced care. Healthcare guidelines keep evolving, and guidelines for neck pain due to cervical disc herniation indicate an 8 to 12 week wait before surgical intervention which is just enough time for New York chiropractic care at Dr. Gary Stefanick to potentially prevent New York back surgery for many.

In Europe, national guidelines for the non-surgical care of new onset neck pain or cervical radiculopathy (arm pain) are shared:  Supervised exercise with manual therapy. Exercise and manual therapy before medicine for neck pain. Acupuncture for neck pain. Traction for cervical radiculopathy. NSAIDs (oral or topical) and tramadol after careful consideration for both neck pain and cervical radiculopathy.  The guidelines also recommend telling the patient about warning signs, prognosis and advice to keep active along with treatment.  (1) Good advice! Dr. Gary Stefanick is devoted to New York chiropractic patient education. Dr. Gary Stefanick makes sure New York patients are familiar with their spinal condition, understand the treatment plan to relieve the pain, and embrace their role in getting, maintaining and holding onto the relief so that they do not have to experience arm pain or neck pain any longer than they have to or need to experience New York neck surgery.

A study of Dutch neurosurgeons reveals that 76.3% of them implement the anterior cervical discectomy with fusion for cervical spine disc herniation surgeries. This means that they reach the cervical spine via the front of the neck, not the back. This surgical approach brings with it a higher risk for complications than a straightforward anterior cervical discectomy, but the surgeons expect it to be more helpful for arm pain relief. In view of the risk, luckily, the surgeons seek a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks of radicular arm pain in a patient before they operate. (2) That offers New York chiropractic care just enough time to reduce New York neck pain.

In 8 weeks, New York chiropractic care at Dr. Gary Stefanick with Cox Technic can do wonders! In a retrospective review of 39 patients treated with Cox Technic protocols for cervical spine in patients with cervical radiculopathy (arm pain), 13.2 treatments was the mean number of treatments to deliver arm pain relief. (3) In 10 weeks, Cox Technic produces a good clinical outcome that keeps going! A 2 year follow up with a patient who had a C6-7 cervical disc herniation with radiculopathy arm pain showed that subjective and objective signs or relief were stable. (4) In the conservative medical care arena, 83% patients with symptomatic cervical spine disc herniation with radiculopathy recover in about 24 to 36 months with the most progress toward recovery occurring in the first 4 to 6 months. (5) [companyname]] invites the challenge of New York neck pain with radiculopathy with this knowledge and positively approaches neck pain and arm pain due to cervical disc herniation with pain relief as the end result. The New York treatment plan for cervical spine pain is ready for you!
