Slip Disc Treatment For Bulging, Herniated & Extruded Disks
Slip disc treatment for patients with bulging, prolapsed, protruded, herniated, extruded, or fragmented discs require specialized and advanced systems and methodologies, and there are no shortcuts! The five critical components needed in slip disc treatment include:
- Knowledge: Clinical knowledge and understanding of how spinal discs get damaged, bulge, herniate, and rupture is essential to a clinician's or therapist's ability in slip disc treatment. For treatments to work, they must be evidence-based on sound clinical knowledge.
- Skillset: The skillset of your therapist is a critical factor in fixing, repairing, and reversing a slip disc without surgery
- Advanced therapeutic modalities: Fixing a slipped disc without medical devices and technologies is impossible. Manual methods have a limitation when it comes to slip disc treatment. Advanced therapy devices such as spinal decompression therapy, high-intensity laser therapy, and flexion-distraction therapy are just 3 examples of therapeutic modalities (therapeutic medical devices) that assist in the retraction and reversal of slipped discs.
- Precision & Accuracy: Slip disc treatment must be accurate, focused, and targeted with precision. Precision and accuracy in therapy are not possible without knowledge, skills, and breakthrough therapy devices that target damaged joints, discs, ligaments, and spine muscles.
- Integration of conservative methods: Using combined methods from clinical physiotherapy, evidence-based chiropractic, and fields of rehabilitation significantly improve outcomes over singular approaches or non-integrative systems of care.
Proper slipped disc treatment can help you avoid pain, disability, and surgery. Regardless of what you may have heard, slipped disc surgery or injections often fails to give you lasting relief for an active life.
Which Types Of Slipped Discs Are Treatable Without Surgery?
All types of slipped discs except sequestered discs are treatable without surgery. A sequestered disc is a large herniated or extruded disc where the ruptured inner part (nucleus pulposus) breaks off, becoming a free-floating entity in the spinal canal. Sequestered discs are the most changing spinal disc conditions that require immediate surgery.
As mentioned at the beginning of this article, for slip disc treatment to be effective, your treatment program must meet the 5 critical components of non-surgical slip disc treatment. Almost all types of slipped disc are treatable and recoverable without surgery if all of the 5 components of slip disc treatment; we have listed these types below:
- Bulging discs
- Prolapsed discs
- Protruded discs
- Disc herniation & Ruptured discs
- Extruded discs
- Partially fragmented discs
Slip disc treatment is challenging. To recover, treatments must be precise, focused, and targeted. Moreover, it needs customization to individual needs. The vast majority of slipped disc patients present with co-condition. Here is a list of the most common co-condition in all types of slip discs:
- Hypertrophy of ligamentum flavum
- Facet hypertrophy
- Arthritis & bone spurs
- Degenerated discs
- Moderate to severe scoliosis
- Spinal stenosis
For you to recover, the co-conditions and the slipped disc need to be paralleled simultaneously; contact one of our treatment centers to learn more about our methodology and systems that target root causes and co-conditions commonly presenting with slipped discs.
Effective Non-Surgical Slip Disc Treatment
This section of our website will elaborate on effective non-surgical slip disc treatment. We will bring you the top-rated slip disc treatment options you can have for a non-surgical repair of your slip disc resulting from bulging discs or disc herniations. But, before we rate them, let's take a closer look at the top choices:
- Spinal decompression
- Chiropractic and Physiotherapy combined
- Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, and Spinal Decompression Combined
- Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation, and Spinal Decompression Combined
Non-Surgical Care That Combines Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Is Best
A physiotherapist's skills and knowledge of muscles, ligaments, and joints enable a physiotherapist to improve your spine by stabilizing your soft tissues. However, slip disc treatment through physiotherapy needs to be planned carefully. Physiotherapists must cautiously approach stretching exercises and strengthening exercises.
Most disc herniations and extrusions should not receive any stretching in the early stages as these represent a ruptured form of a slipped disc. Ruptured slipped discs have tears in the annular fibers. The annual fibrosus or fibers are the supportive tissue of the disc. Tears need specialized attention and skillset when it comes to slip disc treatment.
Physiotherapists are not alone in their clinical accomplishments for patients with slip-disc. A chiropractor's attention and concern for proper spinal biomechanics and alignment are unrelieved by others in healthcare. Chiropractic treatments, much like physiotherapy, have the edge over all other non-surgical caregivers. An excellent research-based chiropractor can offer significant help to slip-disc patients.
For chiropractic treatment of bulging and herniated discs to work, it must be through a non-rotatory chiropractic technique. The rotatory chiropractic treatment methods are Diversified techniques and the Gonstead techniques. Both of these are good techniques, but they are rotatory and not suitable for slip disc treatment.
Physiotherapy and chiropractic care are the two best-proven professions that can effectively deal with slip-disc. Chiropractic and physiotherapy have proven their clinic worth. The only thing better than a chiropractor or physiotherapist is an integrative system, combining chiropractic with physiotherapy and customized rehabilitation.
NSD Therapy®: Advanced Slip Disc Treatment Through Technology
Chiropractors and physiotherapists study and research how to fix and repair damaged joints, muscles, and ligaments. Chiropractors and physiotherapists have a deep-seated understanding of the spine, attributed to their education level. And as such, those who pursue knowledge are better at producing results even if others fail.
A physiotherapist's or a chiropractor's level of education and training is key to the success of the therapeutic devices, while some utilize therapy machines such as ultrasound or electrotherapy. While the hands-on system of care and the basic therapy devices such as electrotherapy or ultrasound can be effective for certain types of neck or back pain, they will have a minimal impact on slipped discs, such as disc herniation bulges or fragmented discs.
What are the Characteristics of Centers that Offers the BEST Slip-Disc Treatment Options?
There are no shortcuts in fixing or repairing slipped discs or their co-conditions. To recover, you need focused and specialized methods. A combined or collaborative slip-disc-specific practice of chiropractic and physiotherapy with specialized medical equipment is best for bulging, herniated, and extruded discs.
To summarize, the characteristics of a good slip disc treatment center are mentioned in the five critical components at the top of this page. Chiropractic Specialty Center® (CSC) is an excellent example of a therapy center that meets the required 5 components.

How Non-Invasive Slip-Disc Treatment Heal Your Slip-Disc?
A spinal disc has two primary structures: the annulus fibrosis on the outer aspect (60% water) and the nucleus pulposus at its core (80% water). Both contain a high percentage of water, but the nucleus (center of the disc) is where we find the disc's heart: a gel-like texture.
Although both parts of the disc are essential, the nucleus ranks higher. The nucleus of the spinal disc manufactures all the chemicals a spinal disc needs for daily function and when repairs are needed. Thus, so a healthy nucleus is core to a speedy recovery. A degenerated disc is a disc in which the nucleus is drying up or dried up: complicating spinal disc recovery following injury or damage.
As we do our daily activities (walking, running, sitting, jumping, bending down, etc.), we will place a lot of pressure on our discs. An overload of axial force imposed on a disc due to bad posture or traumatic falls puts our spinal discs at greater risk. Axial loading, such as prolonged sitting, can lead to disc degeneration.
Blood supply to a spinal disc decreases or stops altogether during periods of prolonged sitting (axial loading). With a decline in blood supply, the inner cells of the nucleolus (inner compartment of the Spinal Disc) will not obtain the raw materials (water, sugar, oxygen, and amino acids) in sufficient quantities to synthesize the glucosamine products a disc needs for survival. A lack of blood supply always leads to degenerative changes and an eventually slipped disc. To conclude: the best slip disc treatment options increase the flow of nutrients into a damaged disc.
Slip-Disc Treatment To Avoid Surgery & Injections
No one is keen on getting pocked by a needle, undergoing surgery for slipped discs, or any other health condition.
However, the reality is that millions have surgical and invasive procedures because they were unaware of surgical alternatives or because the conservative care they received was ineffective!
If you want to avoid spine surgery, you should try NSD Therapy®. NSD Therapy® has helped thousands avoid spinal injections and surgery. Moreover, it has helped many who suffered from backaches after surgery.
Conservative treatment programs can repair and help your recovery if they meet the five slipped disc treatment components, resulting in the reversal of damage without surgery.
Impact of Genuine Spinal Decompression Therapy on Slip-Disc
Non-surgical repair of a slipped disc is impossible without having, at the minimum, these three methods f care during the same session:
- Proper spinal decompression therapy
- Flexion-distraction therapy
- High-intensity laser therapy
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment explicitly administered for patients with mechanical disc problems. It is commonly used by chiropractors worldwide due to its efficacy.
Significant differences exist; proper spinal decompression therapy offers much more than DTS spinal decompression or traction therapy. The treatment involves intermittent stretching and relaxation of the spine at particular angles for precision, which aims to induce a process vital for spinal disc rejuvenation: imbibition.
Spinal decompression therapy aims to reduce the pressure placed on spinal discs, enabling them to rehydrate and absorb more nutrients while gradually pulling the nucleus pulposus into its original place. As the nucleus pulposus retracts inwards, impingement of the surrounding neural structures will be relieved; decreasing pain, numbness, burning, or tingling sensations while improving strengthing and stability in the legs and arms.
