Disc sequestration often causes extreme pain as the sequestered portion of the disc presses against nearby nerves. Conventional treatment for a sequestered disc involves one or more pain killers including NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), opioids, epidural infiltrations, and periradicular infiltrations (CT-guided). Surgery is often recommended in severe cases. However, many of these medications cause severe side effects and wide-scale studies show that back surgery is often unnecessary and doesn’t improve outcomes.
Technology-Based Holistic Pain Management System
Pharmacological and surgical methods are temporary fixes that cause more harm than good. However, We offers a non-pharmacological therapy called Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) to reduce pain caused by a sequestered disc. This treatment method uses low-level electrical currents to reduce back pain without the risk of any side effects. This therapy also reduces inflammation and promotes the body’s tissue repair processes.
Pain management also includes isolation muscle training, extensions, and medical movements that focus on core strengthening. The type of movements included in these therapies will depend on the location and intensity of the pain.
Customized Treatment Protocols
85% of all back pain cases do not receive a definite diagnosis and are termed “non-specific”. These patients are then put on a common treatment plan in which the symptoms are managed but the primary cause is not treated.
Recurrence Prevention through Medical Movements
Recurrence is a possible complication after back surgery for disc sequestration. Population studies show that recurrent disc herniation can occur in up to 25% of all cases. We recommend therapeutic exercises for each patient based on a thorough physical assessment. These help to strengthen the muscles supporting the spine which ensures proper alignment of the spine. The intensity, frequency, and type of exercise is based on the patient’s requirements. This therapy ensures that the structures affected by the sequestered disc are not further irritated and that the risk of recurrence is minimal.
Back pain that is severe or persistent should never be ignored as it can aggravate the underlying condition and result in serious problems
