Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating. Symptoms can range from simply low back pain to intense radiation of pain with numbness and tingling into the thigh, calf and foot.
Dr. Putty utilizes a treatment called flexion-distraction to treat lumbar disc problems. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations.
Flexion Distraction involves using a special table that distracts and flexes the spine in an manual and gentle rythmic motion. Dr. Putty will use manual techniques with the table to resolve the disc herniation or bulge. This treatment is used to create a negative pressure or vacuum that pulls the disc bulge back into the correct position.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body.
Disk herniation's can be a serious problem, proper diagnosis and treatment should not be postponed. If you have pain down the legs or numbness or tingling in the lower extremities call Dr. Putty today, consultations are always free.
