Hi, I’m Dr. Kent Ferguson, chiropractor (click here to watch video) @ Oliver Chiropractic Wellness Clinic. Chiropractic care for spinal disc problems is steadily increasing in popularity. As more and more research proves the effectiveness for chiropractic for these types of problems, doctors and therapists are incorporating it into treatment plans for their patients.
Most spinal or disc problems are marked by a specific set of symptoms including neck and back pain, stiffness, arm pain, leg pain, and tenderness in the spinal muscles or the spine itself. Other more serious symptoms can present at the onset of the condition or over a period of time. These symptoms indicate a dangerous problem that could even be life threatening; they include:
- Back pain accompanied by fever
- Loss of control of bladder or bowel
- Severe weakness that inhibits the ability to use arms, legs, walk, etc.
- Loss of sensation in both arms and/or both buttocks
- Inability to defecate or urinate
More serious or life threatening symptoms may require medical intervention, but most spinal conditions can be helped or even corrected with chiropractic care.
Spinal manipulation by a doctor of chiropractic has been proven to be an effective, safe treatment for disc problems and associated pain. In some cases therapeutic exercise may be added to the treatment and this too has been shown to be very effective.
So if you or a loved one are suffering from spinal disc problems, make sure you give our clinic a call @ 780-455-2112. We’re here to help!
Thanks for watching, Take care
