Bulged or Herniated Discs
Many patients in the past have asked us if they have bulging disc or herniated disc in the neck or back, if we can shift it in place. There are specific exercises which allow your body to respond to move in place for those bulged or herniated discs maybe even a short period of time. We have helped patients who were diagnosed for those conditions but we were able to correct the disc deformity as well as restored full function back.
Don’t wait until it gets too late
Some of the patients may need to go through the surgical options as they may not benefit from physical therapy. We have seen some cases like that as those patients were waiting too long for the pain to go away. As a result, the conditions could develop beyond physical therapy and the only option is to do surgical intervention. We would like anyone who has suffered from acute or chronic pain to try physical therapy at Apex and see the optimal result. Some mild cases, pain can go away by itself but if it goes beyond, we strongly recommend to see your physician or try physical therapy.
