Ruptured Neck Disc Treatment
Ruptured Neck Disc Treatment at Physicians Rehabilitation
If you are searching for a reputable orthopedic center to visit for ruptured neck disc treatment, consider choosing Physicians Rehabilitation for your care. Our network of orthopedic clinics specialize in providing advanced non-surgical treatment to patients with a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including spinal disorders like ruptured discs.
What is a ruptured disc?
First, let’s review the anatomy of the neck. The spine is made up of vertebrae – or small, rounded bones – that are cushioned by discs. These discs feature a gel-like core and a tougher outer shell. If the neck (cervical spine) is subject to years of wear and tear or sudden impact, a crack may develop in a disc’s outer shell, causing its contents to enter into the spinal canal and potentially irritate the spinal cord or nearby nerve roots.
Do I need ruptured neck disc treatment?
It’s always a good idea to consult with a physician if you are experiencing any new or unusual neck pain, particularly if it persists or worsens with self-care measures like stretching and over-the-counter medications. At Physicians Rehabilitation, our board-certified specialists help patients with neck pain by pinpointing the exact cause of their symptoms and providing personalized treatment. If a patient is diagnosed with a ruptured neck disc, we will suggest evidence-based treatments like physical therapy, non-narcotic medication, bracing, or even a minimally invasive nerve block procedure to provide meaningful symptom relief — without the risks associated with traditional surgery or potent narcotics.
Contact Physicians Rehabilitation today to schedule a no-cost consultation at one of our centers in Florida, even if other doctors have told you that surgery is your best ruptured neck disc treatment option. We look forward to helping you find relief and get back to life.
