what is the best degenerative disc disease treatment in the Uk?

Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment has long been written off by medics and chiropractors alike, with many considering DDD as a normal variant and therefore not relevant when looking for the cause of pain. Our unique protocols are here to dispel this myth and deliver effective releife for degenerative discs.

Mechanically speaking when the disc dehydrates it loses its ability to act as a shock absorber, but it also opens the disc up to becoming chronically inflamed.

Lately, more and more research is pouring in, showing us a variety of ways in which dysfunctional discs can directly cause pain.

What is more, is that these pathologies are some of the most difficult to heal, needing specific knowledge and specialist equipment.

Importantly here at The DISC Chiropractors, we have developed unique treatment protocols for both mild degenerative changes as well as more advanced cases of degeneration known as Stenosis.

disc pain research is focused on topics such as:

Is chiropractic care a valid degenerative disc disease treatment?

Research suggests that by age 50, 80% of people without pain have Degenerative Disc Disease. Given that chiropractic care is the most popular manual therapy worldwide for back pain, it makes sense, that under normal circumstances, chiropractic care is both safe and effective as a degenerative disc disease treatment.

The issue arises in inherently inflammatory cases. knowledge of Inflammatory Disc Disease and Discogenic Pain is fledgeling and spotting which cases are thus likely to be prone to reacting to manual therapy requires specialist experience.

Fun Fact

Degenerative changes don’t necessarily hurt! 
They are susceptible to external factors that change the amount of inflammation and therefore pain, for example some people are badly affected by poor weather, conversely many find keeping mobile give great relief.

what is the best degenerative disc disease treatment?

Assuming we are now focused on the cases that are more complicated in nature. Spinal Decompression Therapy (SDT) again comes to the forefront of our thought process as the best form of treatment for slipped discs.

SDT is the modern evolution of spinal traction, without a doubt, this is a game-changer. Never has a therapy or technique before been able to show such potential for healing a damaged disc

Our DISC clinic understands the need for caution and has the experience to judge the appropriate pull patterns to maximise effectiveness whilst minimising discomfort.

In addition, Instrument-Assisted Adjusting provides a conservative alternative to manual manipulation to gently mobilise accessory areas of dysfunction.

what alternative Degenerative disc disease treatments are available?

Experience has shown that when a case needs a light touch, like when dealing with inflammatory, degenerative disc disease treatments… Laser Therapy becomes the ideal weapon to pull out of the arsenal.

Our Surbiton DISC clinic has been using lasers for nearly 10 years and recently upgraded to the latest cutting-edge Class IV K-Laser.

Harnessing the power of light, laser therapy is a technique that uses specific light wavelengths to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and promote tissue repair.

Laser is a ‘firefighter’ in that it reduces inflammation making it ideal for cases where physical care produces a reaction, it means we can often use some of our stronger treatments, safe in the knowledge our session will end with a soothing effect.
