Is an untreated herniated disc causing your back or neck pain? You don’t have to suffer from pain or rely on prescription painkillers to manage this pain. Dr. John Gehnrich is our chiropractor in Rockville Centre with more than 16 years of experience freeing patients from chronic pain due to disc herniation. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective and drug-free approach to disc herniation pain relief.
The spine is the body’s foundation. A misalignment in the spine can compromise the central nervous system’s ability to send and receive messages between the brain and the body’s organs. While we may not be able to “feel” every misalignment, micro traumas and tears can still adversely impact your overall health. A herniated disc may place pressure on nearby nerves, triggering a radiating or numbing pain sensation along the length of the nerve.
If you have recently been in an accident or sustained an injury, you may have been advised by a doctor to take medication to manage your pain. Unfortunately, medications cover up pain symptoms rather than treating the real cause for your pain. Worse, medications can also adversely impact the health of your kidneys, liver, stomach, digestive system, and other organs. The result: your pain continues and your overall health declines. Our Rockville Centre chiropractor believes there is a better, more effective approach.
Dr. Gehnrich’s comprehensive, whole body approach addresses to root cause for your pain. At Rhino Chiropractic, our mission is simple. We want to find out the reason why you have this pain, the pain’s origin, and the reason for its reoccurrence so we can correct the real problem.
Dr. Genhrich focuses on straightening the back curve and getting the sides curved back into the correct position. When appropriate, we take X-rays to better understand potential issues before treatment begins. Dr. Gehnrich will review a patient’s posture, check weight distribution with a bilateral assessment, and measure nerve pinching using postural analysis.
These assessments ensure that our team has a clear understanding of the root cause for your pain and how a herniated disc is impacting your body’s overall health. Dr. Gehnrich uses this information to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique pain needs.
When Dr. Gehnrich adjusts the back, for example, he does more than just adjust the painful section. Since the spine is connected everywhere, he adjusts the body holistically, from top to bottom and bottom to top. Dr. Gehnrich may also recommend lifestyle and nutrition adjustments to improve your overall health and reduce the risk for pain recurrence.
Don’t ignore a chronic health issue like back pain. Recurring pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is not right. Our chiropractor in Rockville Centre calls this pain a “check engine light”. If you are in pain, we can help. Call Rhino Chiropractic at 516-536-6000 today.
