American Fitness and nutrition guru Jack Lalanne once said-

“The spine is the lifeline. A lot of people should go to a chiropractor, but they don’t know it.” 

Chiropractic or the methods and ways practised by the chiropractors is a collection of techniques that were once claimed to be pseudoscientific. Nowadays, this comes under Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM). This very CAM constitutes ways of medicine like acupuncture, Ayurveda, Homeopathy and other various traditional medicine forms.

  • Spinal Manipulation Under Anesthesia: This is a very successful procedure that was invented during the 1930s. It is beneficial with people having herniated discs without breaks, unsuccessful back surgery and a few other back disorders.

The manipulation has been proved very helpful, and about 60% of the people after manipulation return to the previously restricted activities without any issues. Even more than that do not require and y drugs after that.
  • Disc Herniation Reduction therapy: Apart from the manipulation under anesthesia, this is one other method to reduce the herniation. Used beforehand and it prevents the condition to reach the stage where manipulation under anesthesia might be needed.
