With our innovative treatment options, we strive to improve your quality of life and help you regain optimal spinal health.

Understanding Herniated Discs

Herniated discs, also known as slipped discs or ruptured discs, occur when the soft inner core of a spinal disc protrudes through the tougher outer layer. This condition can cause immense pain and discomfort, often limiting your ability to perform daily activities.

Common symptoms associated with herniated discs include:

  • Localized or radiating pain
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Muscle weakness
  • Difficulty walking or standing

It's important to seek prompt medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms to prevent further complications.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At CHI St. Luke’s Health - Performance Medicine, we offer a wide range of advanced treatment options to effectively manage herniated discs and provide relief from associated symptoms.

Physical Therapy

Our experienced physical therapists develop personalized treatment plans to address your unique needs. Through a combination of exercises, stretches, and manual therapy techniques, physical therapy can help improve muscle strength, flexibility, and overall function.

Non-Surgical Interventions

For patients with mild to moderate herniated discs, non-surgical interventions may be recommended. These may include:

  • Medication management to relieve pain and reduce inflammation
  • Epidural steroid injections to target specific areas and decrease swelling
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) to alleviate pain through electrical impulses
  • Hot and cold therapy to reduce inflammation and provide temporary relief

Minimally Invasive Procedures

In cases where conservative measures do not provide sufficient relief, minimally invasive procedures may be recommended. These procedures are performed using advanced techniques and tools, resulting in smaller incisions, minimal scarring, and faster recovery times. Common minimally invasive procedures for herniated discs include:

  • Laser Discectomy: A laser is used to remove a portion of the herniated disc, relieving pressure on the nerves.
  • Microdiscectomy: A small incision is made, and a microscopic tool is used to remove the herniated disc material, providing relief from pain and pressure.
  • Endoscopic Discectomy: A thin tube with a camera is inserted through a small incision, allowing the surgeon to view and remove the herniated disc.
