The Herniated Disc Authority

The Herniated Disc Authority

Need help with a herniated disc? You have come to the right place. You have discovered the only 100% objective resource dedicated exclusively to intervertebral disc degeneration and herniation.  Our online community is completely free to enjoy and provides expert guidance for patients who have been diagnosed with any type of spinal disc abnormality. You will find this website to be unique in a sea of conformists, since we discuss the actual facts of spinal disc concerns from a completely non-financially motivated point of view.

We proudly distance ourselves from the profit-minded antiquated view of herniated discs embraced by most doctors and product manufacturers. This traditional philosophy relies on myths, lies and ignorance to make billions of dollars by providing unnecessary care for innocent spinal irregularities.  Of all the many possible causes of back, neck and sciatica pain, herniated and degenerated spinal discs are certainly the most commonly diagnosed and actively treated by medical, complementary and alternative care providers. This is ironic, since herniated disc treatment is statistically the least successful of all endeavors in the entire back care sector of medicine.

Proven medical research, performed during countless studies, on every populated continent, over decades of time, has definitely shown absolutely no correlation between the existence of herniated discs and the incidence of back or neck pain.  This is a fact that most doctors would rather remain well hidden from general consumption, since spinal disc therapy accounts for a substantial percentage of income for millions of caregivers worldwide. Most people do not know that intervertebral herniations are extremely commonplace and that lumbar and cervical spinal disc degeneration is absolutely universal in the general adult population.

Intervertebral disc abnormalities can be pathological in rare instances. Some discs can cause mechanical pain or exacerbate the osteoarthritic processes. Other irregular spinal discs might contribute to the development of atypical spinal curvatures or vertebral listhesis. Of course, the most common reasons why disc problems might actually create symptoms are through the processes of neuroforaminal narrowing and central spinal stenosis.  We study all of these possibilities in painstaking detail and provide patients with valuable guidance on verifying the validity of a disc diagnosis through neurological examination and symptomatic correlation. More importantly, we provide alternate explanations for dorsal symptoms that have been mistakenly blamed on a coincidental herniated or degenerated disc.

We do not generalize in our approach to patient education, since each and every spinal disc condition is unique and deserves to be evaluated thoroughly. To this end, we provide explicit guidelines on preventing the common misdiagnosis that befalls so many patients, as well as tips on finding the best forms of degenerated or herniated disc treatment in the conservative, moderate and invasive sectors of care, if any intervention is required at all.

I understand how frightening it can be to be diagnosed with a herniated disc. I also know how confusing the many diagnostic terms and treatment options can be. I currently demonstrate 12 known herniated discs in my spine.  This is more than half of my total spinal discs.  I have lived your fear, frustration and pain for decades already, but have used my experience to help others to find lasting relief.  In fact, The Cure Back Pain Network of websites has provided the information that has cured hundreds-of-thousands of people over the past ten years.  No other website claims this efficacy because they merely perpetuate the same old medical mythology that has never cured anyone.  I am so proud of the work that began as a one person project and has become one of the largest and most peer-respected websites online today.  It is now my singular objective to help you and I will happily do it for free, without the expectation of any benefit, unlike those who currently claim to be “treating you”.

What to Expect from The Herniated Disc Authority

This patient education website features enlightening resource sections describing the causes and symptoms of herniated discs. You can investigate spinal disc concerns in the neck, upper back, middle back and lower back and how each location is relevant to the effects produced. The site also provides an in-depth look at the spinal disc anatomy to help you better understand how and why discs can suffer from degeneration or injury.

Intervertebral disc abnormalities can be diagnosed using a staggeringly diverse range of terminologies including herniated disc, bulging disc, slipped disc, ruptured disc, extruded disc, sequestered disc, prolapsed disc, protruding disc, degenerated disc, fragmented disc, collapsed disc, annular tear and degenerative disc disease.  This catalog of nomenclature can create tremendous confusion for back and neck pain patients.  We seek to clarify the many diagnostic terms that are used and focus on those commonly found on MRI reports and other diagnostic imaging studies.

A primary mission of this website is to explain the diversity of traditional, complementary and alternative herniated disc treatment options. From home remedies to conservative care to intervertebral disc surgery, there are more choices than ever before. After all, you must understand the positive and negative considerations of each type of therapy in order to select the best treatment approach for your needs.  More importantly, you must know when treatment is actually needed, versus the far more common occurrence where no therapy is required or indicated.

You will never find a more complete encyclopedia of herniated disc information anywhere. It is our hope that you can use this completely free resource to find a cure for your own disc-related symptoms. Life is much better when you can leave the tremendous burden of back or neck pain behind and face the future with optimism and good health. This intervertebral disc pain resource is our gift to you.
