cervical disc herniations

A: Toni, First of all, the main problem that you are having is that everyone you are going to see is 4th rate at best.  What I mean by this the following: If you put a rubber band around your finger what you would find shortly is that the end of the finger would change color typically red.  Then soon enough that finger may start to experience altered function (not working the way it normally would or should).  Then you may start to feel pain in that finger and enough to the point of going to see a doctor.  This doctor does all kinds of diagnostics on the function of the finger and offers various drugs to block the pain receptors from transmitting pain.  Then they may even give you exercises to do to strengthen your finger, or a special diet to help fortify the cells...

cervical disc herniation/coughing

A: Dear Chris, Thank you for your question.  Unfortunately, it is based on some misconceptions.  In order to answer you properly, I"ll first need to give you some background on anatomy and physiology and how they relate to the chiropractic profession.  I"ll then offer my thoughts on how this may relate to the situation you describe.   There are two branches or schools of thought in chiropractic.  Briefly, they are differentiated by whether they deal with the limited therapeutic approach for aches and pains (commonly termed "mixed" chiropractic because it represents a mixture of a chiropractor with a non-chiropractic matter) or a non-therapeutic approach to optimum body performance (termed "straight" chiropractic because there is no mixing of chiropractic with...

tinnitus disc herniation

A: The answer is no. Tinnitus would not be caused by a disc herniation. Tinnitus is very difficult to deal with. You will get frustrated seeing specialists. If the tinnitus isn"t causing vertigo (dizziness) then you may want to just deal with it. I know that"s not the answer you were looking for.

I tried many years later to research this topic when a similar case came into my office,  and unfortunately I found nothing. So, if you smoke, stop. If you don"t...

cervical spine disc herniation

A: Dear Mirza, First of all I am shocked to find out that the ENT told you that the tinnitis is a result of the loss of your neck curve...pretty forward thinking on his part.  This is a possibility due to the neurological connection of the upper cervical nerve roots, the trigeminal ganglion, and the cranial nerves, so it is a possibility.  That being said, I hope he explored other options as well just to be thorough. Concerning the neurosurgeon, I would have to disagree with his assessment, but only because you just had an MRI that found no disc bulge.  However, he is correct that all of these symptoms can be the direct result of a cervical disc bulge pressing into the...


What is Thoracic disc herniation?

A: The thoracic section of the spine is the middle part of the vertebra, which runs along the mid-back between the neck (cervical spine) and the lower back (lumbar spine). A herniated disc can result in any part of the spine and is a result of rupture of one of the cushioning discs between two vertebrae.
