Bulging disc treatment begins with an assessment, by the chiropractor, into where the pain is being caused (not always the same as where it’s being felt). For a chiropractor, herniated disc I4 I5, for example, tells them exactly which disc (the one between lumbar vertebrae 4 and lumbar vertebrae 5) is bulging and how it is then affecting your nerves and how it should be treated.
The chiropractor can then identify the right individual treatment plan and combination of bulging disc pain treatment methods. There are many different types of back pain treatment and most chiropractors will use a combination of them all to alleviate upper back pain and strengthen your body to minimise recurrence of the injury.
That’s why, when you are considering a chiropractor vs doctor for back pain treatment, you will find that a chiropractor is able to work with you over a period of time to achieve a result which addresses the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
