A hernia is a condition of the back or neck in which the intervertebral disc protrudes. This bulge presses on a nerve, which can cause pain or other complaints (loss, ‘numb’ feeling). Hernia symptoms can be very different, but the first complaint is often lower back pain. Because a hernia presses on nerves in your back, the pain can also radiate to the legs. The intensity of the pain is very variable: sometimes you will feel little or no pain with a hernia, but there may also be periods when the pain is so severe that your daily activities are seriously hindered.
Not every back complaint is the same. The muscles, vertebrae, intervertebral discs, joint capsules, connective tissue and nervous system all play an important role in the movement of the back. If one or more of these structures cannot do its job properly, back pain develops. Although the complaints are often very similar in different patients, the underlying cause can be very different. It is therefore important to carefully analyze how the complaints arose before an effective treatment can be started. The chiropractor conducts this examination during the first consultation .
Then the second consultation follows. If it appears that the chiropractor can help you, the treatment plan will be discussed with you and the treatments can then be started. In addition to the treatments, ergonomic advice, specific exercises and general health advice are often given to speed up recovery as much as possible.
A new, successful treatment method for HERNIA?
Do you suffer from a hernia, stenosis, sciatica, radiating pain or degeneration of the intervertebral discs? Then you can benefit from Decompression Therapy. This therapy has yielded many good results, even in patients who have undergone various other treatments in vain. Decompression Therapy aims to create more space between the vertebrae, so that the pressure on the nerve decreases or disappears.
