Bulging Disc

If your life is being held back by debilitating searing back pain and radiating pain to the limbs, you may have yourself a bulging disc. This condition is caused by the soft gel-like interior pushing out the outer edge of the disc on to a nerve root. A bulging disc may be caused by an immediate injury or an ongoing process known as Degenerative Disc Disease. If you are experiencing this type of pain, schedule an appointment with our Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor, Dr. Chris Michlin, at Back To Health Family Chiropractic for natural and effective care to address your bulging disc.


What To Expect

We refrain from starting any treatment without first conducting a comprehensive exam to better understand the body’s imbalance. The focus here is pinpointing the bulging disc issue—its precise location, chronological context, associated activities, and underlying triggers. We’ll be able to find the location of the bulging disc through a comprehensive physical examination and a series of full spine x-ray imaging. In some cases, an MRI may be required. This is a crucial aspect of our process which enables us to specifically identify any spinal misalignments. We use these findings to create the most effective treatment plan uniquely tailored for you.

What Is Atlas Orthogonal (AO)? 

Atlas Orthogonal treats the entire body by focusing on realigning the top-most vertabra in the spine, the Atlas (C1).

The Atlas Orthogonal Precision Adjusting Instrument applies a gentle, yet specific percussive force to C1. The percussive force adjusts C1 into proper alignment. Once the Atlas is set into proper alignment, the rest of the spine follows suit. Realignment of the spine allows the body to be in balance and frees it of interferences in the nervous system.

The Benefits of The Treatment

Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care is among the gentlest of all chiropractic techniques. AO is non-invasive in nature and the approach is exceptionally safe. Without any twisting or cracking, children say the adjustment tickles and adults wonder if anything has been done. This is attributed to the subtle pressure applied during the Atlas adjustment.

The treatment's emphasis on precision yields optimal results. After the first Atlas adjustment, post-cervical x-rays give empirical proof of immediate change.

Beyond The Atlas

At Back to Health Family Chiropractic, in addition to our AO adjustments, Dr. Michlin provides full-spine and adjunctive care to include soft tissue, cox flexion distraction, and red light and near infrared full body therapy.  With full-spine care, Dr. Michlin is just as gentle and specific as the Atlas Orthogonal adjustment.

Avoid Surgery with Chiropractic Care

Many of our patients appreciate visiting our office since our chiropractic approach can potentially remove the need for surgery, which often entails an extended recovery period. Our natural and effective treatment plans are tailored to each patient. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication to mask the pain.
