Hip & Leg Pain
Severe pain radiating down into the hip and legs can be one of the most excruciating and debilitating conditions of all. Frequently associated with bulging or herniated discs, this type of pain can be solved but frequently is not. Indeed, it requires a special approach that corrects the underlying cause (the bad disc). If the underlying cause is not corrected, temporary therapies like pain medicine, exercise therapy, cortisone shots, NSAIDs, inversion tables like seen on TV, and others ultimately will fail.
The failure of these therapies lead to an individual that believes he can no longer really get well and will have to live with the condition from now on.
At the Institute, we will get to the bottom of the problem. We use specialized diagnostic techniques and high-tech imaging to isolate the cause. Once this is done, we use integrated techniques that can include medicine, VAX-D™ nonsurgical spinal decompression, specific spinal manipulation, Regenerative Pulse Wave Therapy, and sometimes even acupuncture.
In cases of severe pain, specific medicines are used to relieve the underlying inflammation causing the pain. But at the Institute, we keep in mind the fact that the use of these medicines are to relieve the pain by reducing the underlying inflammation and swelling so as to actually assist in the healing process. This is much different from other approaches that just use pain medicine to ease the pain without really doing much for the underlying condition.
