Hello folks! I am, Dr. Joshua Welch, the number one chiropractor in South Lake Tahoe, and I would like to help all of you, young and old with any slipped disc problems that you may have.
Not only can a slipped disc cause pain, tingling and numbness, it can affect your sleep and other functions as well. Instead of allowing a slipped disc cause you pain and other problems, it is important to get the help that you need right away. There are far too many interesting activities in Lake Tahoe to enjoy, and you will not be able to enjoy them if you are dealing with the problems caused by your slipped disc.
Traditional medicine may not work out very well for you in all cases, and you may find yourself having surgery after medications have stop working. I want to help everyone in the Lake Tahoe area to live comfortably. With careful manipulation and soft tissue massage, I can help restore some of the flexibility and range of movement in your back as well as relieving some of the pain that you are feeling.
If traditional medicines and treatments have failed you, come see me at my Meyers office for treatment. Of course, you will also have your own work to do, with special exercises that you will be encouraged to do at home. After a few treatments at my office, in addition to the exercises you are doing, I am certain you will want to include chiropractic into your active lifestyle.
Make an appointment today so that you can get back to feeling good as quickly as possible, give us a call at 530-577-5433.
Back Pain Will I Have To Live With It?
Pain is a warning sign. Like the piercing sound from a smoke alarm, the alarm isn't the problem. The alarm has a cause, just like every ache or pain has a cause. Some people choose to cover up the pain instead of correcting the cause. What's your approach?
It makes sense to correct the cause instead of treating the symptom.
The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. If these pairs of interlocking "fingers" aren't moving right, they can cause painful symptoms. The discs between spinal bones can be a source of back pain, too. These rings of fibrous tissues act as spacers, connectors and "shock absorbers" for the spine. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge or herniate, putting pressure on delicate nearby nerves. Once you know the cause, you have several choices. One approach is bed rest. But research shows that prolonged bed rest can actually delay recovery and make the problem worse!
Physical therapy is another option. But exercising spinal joints that aren't working right is like continuing to drive your car with misaligned tires! Another choice is to numb or cover up the pain with drugs. While drugs can offer temporary relief, they can't correct functional problems of affected spinal joints.
The most drastic measure is surgery. A laminectomy cuts off the offending facet joints, leaving the spinal cord exposed! A spinal fusion cuts out the disc tissue and immobilizes the joint. While there may be times when surgery makes sense, it's expensive, risky and more than half of all back surgeries fail. More and more people are choosing chiropractic care first, Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. Better yet, chiropractic care is safe. Chiropractic is natural. And chiropractic looks to correct the underlying cause of the problem.

What Makes It So Different?
The focus of traditional health care is on germs and blood. Chiropractic is different. Chiropractic produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should. An emphasis on blood overlooks the role of the nervous system, which controls your blood, your blood pressure and millions of other details.
Chiropractic care focuses on your spine because it is the most vulnerable part of your nervous system.
Doctor's don't heal. The very best doctors remove interferences to your healing ability. That's the purpose of chiropractic. Today's chiropractic doctor is well educated and passes stringent licensing examinations before earning the right to practice. Chiropractic is the natural choice for those who want to be their best while avoiding drugs and surgery.
It's a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. Hinder the vital nerve links between your brain and your body, and ill health can result. A common source of interference comes from the moving bones that encase the "information super highway" of your spinal cord. These subluxations can produce a variety of health problems. Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. Or, spinal misalignment can cause nerve tissue to stretch, chafe or become irritated. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. The result? Hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain.
The medical approach puts chemicals into your bloodstream to artificially change the way your body works. Laxatives to speed up elimination. Antacids to reduce stomach acid. Besides the fatal mistakes, side effects and possible kidney damage, drugs often ignore the real cause of the problem. Instead, the focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system. A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise. The moving bones of the spine are common culprits. Then, specific chiropractic adjustments help reduce these interferences. The intent is to restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself. Without drugs. Without surgery. Chiropractic is simple. It's natural. It honors the wisdom of your body. And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
Hello! I want to help you understand disc herniation's. There are many symptoms that you might have with disc problems, including pain, numbness, tingling and other sensations.
You may also have problems moving around or just have morning stiffness. Disc herniation can be serious, whether you are young or old, and should be treated in the most effective way possible.
Traditional medicine may take months to simply find the problem, costing huge amounts in doctor’s office visits and expensive testing. After the doctors in ~South Lake Tahoe find the disc problem, you may be treated with medication and possibly with surgery, however, these will not always be effective.
If regular treatments, shots, PT, or medication are not working for you any longer or you would rather not deal with surgery at all, you may need a new plan of action. In my South Lake Tahoe practice that is located at 3170 US Hwy 50, in Meyers, I will help you to work toward greater health and wellness by not just treating the pain but helping you with adjustments and bring balance to your body. Together your body can start to heal the disc herniation and positively affect all aspects of health too.
