Avoid Opioids with Non-Surgical Treatment

Most patients leave their surgeon after a procedure with some form of anti-inflammatory or pain medication. Prescription pain medications prescribed by doctors after surgery have contributed to the opioid crisis in America. People should consider non-surgical treatment options that are available to effectively treat painful conditions, including herniated discs without the need for drugs.

We know that if we are able to manage the cause and not just the symptoms for the vast majority of the cases, a non-surgical approach involving the Ferraro spine method should be attempted. I have combined four of the best treatment modalities and then customized them based on my 22 years of experience. It is always a good idea to practice conservative management before resorting to surgical intervention.
