While acupuncture is used as a powerful tool in our pain relief arsenal, disc injuries are resolved at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation through the following practices:
• Medical Care/Interventional Pain Management: The Medical Director at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation may recommend various forms of interventional pain management for cases of severe and immobilizing pain. Such practices might include injections of a long-lasting steroid or Discograms for unresolved and hard-to-treat cases of disc injury-related back pain.
• Physical Therapy: This department uses therapeutic exercises to help patients build strength, prevent further injury, reduce pain, and increase movement.
• Spinal Decompression/Traction: Traction helps to resolve spinal herniations and protrusions by safely and gently separating the bones of the spine. In some cases, this has the effect of pulling disc material back into its protective membrane.
• Chiropractic: Chiropractic uses gentle manipulation to address the issues surrounding disc injuries, alleviate pain and other symptoms, and promote movement and flexibility. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation uses a form of chiropractic that is based on biomechanics and physics and is concerned with the total alignment of the spine.
If you are suffering from sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain, or any of the symptoms related to disc injuries, please contact our Red Bank, NJ Acupuncture office.
