Herniated Disc News About Surgery
Disc surgery is always a controversial topic, since it demonstrates the very worst curative results in the entire invasive dorsalgia treatment sector. Ironically, disc-related surgeries are also the most common types of procedures performed to treat the symptoms of back and neck pain and their related neurological expressions. So, when discussing herniated disc surgery, we are talking about the most commonly practiced and least effective form of invasive care for dorsalgia. No wonder most patients tend to be suspicious of believing any positive claims of new treatments or their promising results.
Objectively, we can say that the actual procedures utilized to treat discs surgically have improved light years over the past few decades. This is excellent news. However, many procedures are still over-used, or inappropriately used, accounting for their failure in the majority of cases.
Virtually all surgeries are now performed using minimally-invasive practices, sparing the patient much trauma, anatomical injury and dramatically reducing recovery time and complications. This is great news!
Furthermore, the introduction of laser surgery into the disc care realm has also helped improve many aspects of the operative process. We look forward to the future continuing to improve the actual procedures, their safety, and hopefully, also their efficacy.
Some of the most innovative herniated disc news topics that we are watching closely include disc nucleus replacement, artificial disc replacement, spinal implants and various injection therapies, such as ozone discolysis.
Herniated Disc News About Conservative Treatment
Conservative herniated disc care has not changed much in the past few decades. The same time-honored practices still remain largely utilized to help patients cope with the symptoms of disc pain, while doing little, if anything, to actually provide a cure for the underlying disc condition.
Nonsurgical disc care that actually provides a cure usually indicates a misdiagnosis of the actual painful mechanism, since virtually all nonsurgical practices can not, and will not, act on the spinal anatomy. Therefore, they have virtually no hope of actually resolving a pathological intervertebral herniation.
Extremely uncommon exceptions to this rule include various chiropractic manipulations and chiropractic Cox Technique. A far more common exception to this rule is the modern application of machine-enacted spinal decompression, including the DRX9000, Vax-D, AccuSpina and Antalgic-Trak systems.
The usual symptom-based conservative care practices include physical therapy, massage, TENS, pharmaceutical therapy and a plethora of complementary and alternative care modalities.
The only major news we have to report on the conservative front of disc care is that virtually every type of alternative treatment is now utilized in an attempt to resolve disc-pain. This would be great if the practices were effective, but in most cases, patients are merely wasting time and money with illogical utilizations of baseless treatment for a diagnosed disc condition.
Of course, we would be neglectful not to mention that mindbody therapies continue to evolve and demonstrate effectiveness for treating many misdiagnosed disc issues. No form of knowledge therapy can cure a truly pathological disc, but all forms can help the patient sort out truly problematic discs from the majority that have been misdiagnosed as the origin of pain, when they are actually innocent and coincidental structural irregularities and nothing more.
