Are you one of the 30+ million Americans suffering from back pain? Often cited as one of the most common reasons for missed work, this leading cause of disability can impact a person’s life on virtually every level. We know that chronic back pain is often related directly to damage to the "vertebral disc" tissue that lies between the individual vertebrae of the spine. When damaged, this tissue "bulges" or "herniates," placing pressure on the nerves that branch off from the spinal cord. When this happens, chronic and severe pain is often the result.
While healing this damaged disc tissue can be key to pain relief, it is often overlooked in favor of "short-term" fixes that are focused on simply masking the pain. The Adjust 4 Life Wellness Center offers a strong alternative to this all too common practice with the DRS Protocol, a series of treatments that employ some of the most advanced medical devices available for nonsurgical treatment of cervical and lumbar disc conditions. Painless and safe, the DRS Protocol works by reducing internal pressures inside the damaged tissue, increasing blood flow to speed tissue regeneration and by targeting the damaged tissue with adjunctive treatments that further aid in repair and restoration.
Living pain free again is an option. As Dr. Long is fond of saying, "our goal is to help our patients get back to living and get back to life." Consider an initial exam at the Adjust 4 Life clinic to explore how their experience and success can translate itself into your life.
