Sarasota Herniated Disc Treatment

Here to Help You Achieve Relief from Back Pain

Back pain affects over 80% of adults at some point in their lives, is among the most common reasons for doctor visits, and is a major cause of disability and lost work days. In many cases, the cause of this pain is a herniated disc.

The vertebrae in your spine are separated by rubbery bands of cartilage called “discs”. A herniated disc is a condition where one of these discs slips out of place or is otherwise damaged. This puts pressure on the nerves and makes the spine more vulnerable to injury. Not all herniated discs are painful, but when they do cause discomfort it is important to have it treated as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the spine.

Symptoms of herniated discs vary, but some common sensations include:

  • Sharp pain in the neck or between the shoulder blades
  • Numbness or tingling in the back, legs, or arms
  • Low back pain
  • Shooting pain in the back and sometimes the arms or legs
  • Difficulty standing
  • Weakness near the affected area

The pain and sensations you might feel will depend on where the herniated disc is located in the spine, so you will probably not experience all of the symptoms listed above at the same time.

If you are suffering from back pain in Sarasota, call (941) 214-4009 and schedule a free screening with the back pain specialists at Platinum Healthcare.

Non-Invasive Disc Herniation Solutions

Disc herniation can often be treated through conservative means, and only patients in severe pain who have exhausted other treatments should consider surgery. At Platinum Healthcare, we use a 3-phase system to treat herniated disc pains. This treatment plan is noninvasive and could prevent the need for surgery in some cases. The goal for the first phase of treatment is to reduce disc inflammation by restoring vital nutrients to the damaged disc. In the second phase, we make sure that the pelvis and spine are properly aligned so that there is no additional pressure on the vertebra.

In the final phase of treatment, we teach patients balance and stability habits they can incorporate into daily life to prevent future injuries. This method of treatment should start showing results relatively quickly. Most patients will also be able to resume normal activities soon after treatment has completed, without any of the lengthy recovery processes that are required post-surgery.
