Efficacy of Chiropractic care on cervical (neck) herniated discs with Degenerative changes in the spine


What is a herniated disc?

A herniated disc is a displacement of disc material.

A more technical term is a displacement of the nucleus, cartilage, fragmented apophyseal bone or fragmented annular tissue BEYOND the intervertebral disc space.

What are the different types of degeneration in the spine?

Type 1- fissuring of the endplates and infiltration of vascularised fibrous tissue. This is where inflammation occurs.

Type 2- Conversion of red marrow to fatty marrow

Type 3 – Subchondral sclerosis has occurred


How Can Chiropractic Help?

A 2016 study showed that Chiropractic patients had a high Neck Disability index Score, which means they strongly felt better after treatment. The study showed the score improved up to 6 months.

The patients also reported NO WORSENING of the symptoms as well.

Worried about side effects? A 2007 survey showed there were no reports of serious adverse events.
