Are you suffering from chronic pain in the neck and back? This condition is medically described as discogenic radiculopathy. Up until now, surgery had remained the only option for patients whose symptoms were not relieved by analgesics, physiotherapy and chiropractic sessions.
The good news is that Spectra Health now offers you resolution of your chronic neck and back pain without surgery!
A healthy spine has soft pliable pieces of disc material between the various vertebrae, which act as cushions and give the body flexibility. However, with aging, the discs undergo wear and tear and tend to lose their elasticity and strength. Aside the normal aging process, poor sitting, bending and lying posture are known to further accelerate the degenerative process. Protrusion and inflammation of the discs with attendant impingement on the surrounding nerves result in pain, back and neck stiffness, numbness and tingling sensation in the arms and legs.
