I am often asked by patients who suffer from radiating arm or leg pain, numbness and tingling, chronic pain, or a bulging/herniated disc is getting a shot and being on medication will fix the problem? My simple response is that anything that doesn’t fix the disc or eliminate the narrowing of the canals in the spine will not have lasting results. Shots and pills can be very effective in the short term while trying to find a permanent solution to fix the problem but they are designed to just provide some temporary relief.The relief unfortunately is only temporary because the injury/ real problem is still there and will still be there when the shot or pill wears off. Plus, the more shots and pills that are used the less effective they become until they eventually get to the point where they don’t work at all. Developing addiction to pain pills is undeniable and such a massive issue that our government has had to step in to regulate them. Shots and pills have a place but are not a long term solution. Thankfully there is a non-surgical solution that has been developed to fix the underlying injury/problem, so you don’t have to rely on shots or pills. Spinal decompression has been repeatedly proven to fix radiating arm or leg pain, numbness and tingling, chronic pain, or a bulging/herniated discs. There are no injections involved and works by using your bodies own natural processes. This is how thousands of people avoid shots and pills permanently, and most importantly get back to living life the way they want to.
