Conditions - Pain - Herniated discs


Patrick Massey MD, PhD,  Daryl Massey PT, MPT  ALT-MED Medical and Physical Therapy, Elk Grove Village Il and serving the Chicago area

Most herniated discs have little or nothing to do with simple back pain (pain not radiating below the knee). They are often incidental findings on MRI. Most back and neck surgeries in the US are probably unnecessary.

There are specific symptoms and conditions that make surgery an absolutely necessity but, in most cases, surgery for a herniated disc should not be done until other conservative therapies have been exhausted. Many can find complete and lasting pain relief and still have a herniated disc.

Benefit from back and neck pain may be found with ALT-MED physical therapy (click here), massage (click here), acupuncture (click here) and select vitamins and dietary supplements.

Dr. Massey published research on the effectiveness of the ALT-MED therapy approach for pain associated with herniated discs (click here and here).

Dear Dr. Massey,

... I wanted to thank you for your encouragement, patience, and caring attitude. I almost gave up on getting better, both with you had such an optimistic view that I would get better and I most certainly did!

I do my exercises six times a week and I never felt better! I really appreciate all you have done for me and feel very blest that I was referred to your clinic! Happy holidays and sincere thanks
