Active Health in Jacksonville, Florida, offers a diverse range of treatments and strategies for a herniated disk. Our team will determine a precise treatment program for each respective patient based on assessments and testing.
Herniated Disks can occur in any part of your spine, but are most common in the lower part of your backbone just above your hips. The pain is likely to spread to other parts of your body, such as your buttocks, thighs, and calves. Being active can cause the discomfort from your herniated disk to become worse while resting should lessen your pain. Your symptoms may become worse from everyday events, like sitting, sneezing, or coughing. The affected part of your back may feel weak, tingly, or numb.
To diagnose a herniated disk, your doctor will likely do a physical exam to figure out the source of your pain. They may check your leg strength, your reflexes at the knee, and how you walk on your heels and toes. They may do further tests, like X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, etc.
Dr. Lipp’s proprietary and revolutionary form of care is very efficient and comprehensive. The evaluation will discover the true underlying root cause of your pain which will help us both correct and prevent your pain from returning.
We use acupuncture in conjunction with care when medically necessary. Traditional Chinese Acupuncture utilizes needling along various meridians (acupuncture points) to restore the proper flow of Qi (pronounced “chEE” & is our body’s source of energy). This promotes the body’s healing response.
We use our performance labs to help “kill the pain cycle”. We can get you functioning and out of pain quickly in most cases. But if you go back to doing what you were doing how you were doing it, then the pain will return. Our various labs offer a combination both a video analysis and a function analysis.
