Bulging Disc Treatment:

How do Chiropractors treat Disc Bulge?

Herniated disc or bulging disc treatment by Cox® certified Chiropractors at Melbourne Spine Clinic and Malvern Chiropractic Clinic uses Cox® Flexion-Distraction therapy, a low force spinal therapy which has been shown to treat disc disease and discomfort by decreasing intradiscal pressure, and therefore decompressing and diminishing the disc protrusion, disc bulge or disc herniation.

Bulging disc treatment using spinal disc decompression therapy, like spinal manipulation, has been proven over and over as the conservative therapy of choice for reducing spinal nerve root compression and hence spinal pain. Cox® Flexion-Distraction is the gold standard in conservative treatment used by back pain experts to treat disc conditions.

Spinal disc decompression therapy is a gentle and effective, 
non-surgical solution to pain and dysfunction caused by the bulging disc.

Research shows that the following outcomes can be achieved using Cox® Flexion-Distraction as a bulging disc treatment:

1. Increases disc space height by 17%

2. Increases the nerve exit points in the spine directing spinal nerves to every part of the body by up to 28%

3. Reduces intradiscal pressure by up to 192 mm Hg, hence removing discal compartment pressure on sensitive spinal nerve roots

4. Restores spinal joints functional range of motion

5. Provides a sedating and relieving effect on nerve conduction with considerable pain relieving outcomes.

Throughout your bulging disc treatment, your practitioner will also provide a stretching and strengthening routine you can undertake at home to ensure your spine rehabilitates to its fullest potential.

Doctors at Melbourne Spine Clinic and Malvern Chiropractic Clinic, who treat bulging discs contribute the worldwide body of research on patients who undergo treatment utilising Cox® Flexion-Distraction.
