Posterocentral Disc Bulges At C4-c5, To L5-s1levels.

Staten Island Herniated Disc , Posterocentral Disc bulges at C4-C5, TO L5-S1 levels,

Hello Vishal Randive from Mumbai,

Sorry to hear that you are hurting.

You have back pain, herniated disk, first,- my simple recommendation is to visit a Doctor of Chiropractic(DC).  

When I went to Palmer Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa, we had students from around the world.  Especially well represented were all of the former English Colonies- New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, India; all of these countries had students at Palmer  http://www.palmer.edu/ .  Palmer was the first Chiropractic College, was the Biggest Chiropractic school in the world, had graduated between 25%- 33% 0f the practicing Chiropractors in the world, when I attended.

Look for a Doctor of Chiropractic.  We handle spinal complaints all day, every day.

If you cannot fond a DC close to you, look for a doctor that specializes in spinal complaints, practices manual medicine, perhaps manipulates.  

In the USA, Doctors of Chiropractic provide 94% of the spinal manipulation,,, but that does mean 6% is being performed by someone else !

Some Medical Doctors manipulate, some Doctors of Osteopathy, there are Doctors of Naturopathy,  perhaps you can find a non-DC that specializes in the spine, that practices similarly to a DC.  I think that could be helpful in your case.

"....Posterocentral Disc bulges at  C4- C5,  C5- C6,  C6- C7,       L4- L5,  &   L5- S1 levels....":  this type of problem usually responds very well to Chiropractic type treatment.

My Staten Island Herniated Disc patients, and patients with Disc Bulge(s) receive informational handouts when the come to me-  here is some information that may be helpful to you:


Pain  is a  ‘red light on the dashboard’.

Pain is your body telling you that something is wrong.

That RED LIGHT on the dashboard of your car- -- do you ignore it until the car breaks down, or do you get it checked and correct the problem?  

Pain, pain in your body- -- do you ignore it until your body breaks down, or do you get it checked and correct the problem?   

Pain,  do you cover up the pain by taking a painkiller?  

Take a painkiller, mask the pain, and allow a problem to progress in your body?     NOTICE  ON  PAIN  RELIEVERS:

Label changes ORDERED by FDA;  the FDA announced proposed label changes for OTC over-the-counter pain relievers to include the potential for stomach bleeding and liver damage(FDA news  206- 207;  12-9-06) ;

The  American Heart Association issued a scientific statement recommending medical doctors change the way they prescribe OTC pain relievers from a first choice to an alternate of recommending non-pharmacologic treatment(AHA statement  2-26-07).

NSAID Acceleration of ARTHRITIS; an important side effect of Aspirin and other NSAIDS is that it will inhibit cartilage repair and accelerate cartilage  destruction(Journal of Rheumatology, 1982; 9: 3- 5). Many times people take NSAIDS for the pain of Arthritis, not realizing these drugs may make the underlying condition worse.  These medications cover up the pain, and cause the problem to worsen.

Pain  can  often  be  the  result  of  the  Vertebral  Subluxation  Complex.

Vertebral  Subluxation           ( ‘VSC’ ,    ‘subluxation’   )

Vertebral Subluxation  is  actually  a  quite  common  condition. Doctors of Chiropractic look for pathological conditions which may require referral to other specialties,   and also look for ‘Subluxation’. Other disciplines look for pathology, but overlook the importance of alignment and movement in the spine which affects our nervous system  (the master control system- ALL health disciplines learn this).  VSC- ‘Subluxation’ – can be the cause of many symptoms and conditions.

Only  a  Doctor of Chiropractic  will  evaluate  and  treat  for  VSC,   as  well  as  other  pathology.

The course of VSC is highly variable.   Some patients with VSC literally cannot walk, yet other patients with similar test findings may be able to run marathons or lift heavy weights.    Some patients immediately develop symptoms related to the VSC,  some patients take years to develop symptoms.  Some people suffer for only a few days with pain and symptoms, some people suffer for months.  Some people recover in days, some take months or years, depending upon severity of the condition.

A subluxation interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system(the master system which controls and coordinates all function within the body) and may cause various other conditions, symptoms and problems.

The Vertebral Subluxation Complex describes what happens when spinal bones lose their normal movement patterns and position.  When subluxated, joints are in a stressed, vulnerable, compromised condition.  Subluxation may cause Arthritis, Disk Herniation, or aggravate such conditions.      Vertebral  Subluxation   cannot   be corrected through chemicals(medicine), stretching,  yoga,  vitamins  or  physical  therapy  alone.       Subluxation- a neuro/skeletal/muscular-    mechanical-    problem  requires  a    mechanical correction-  -  -    a manipulation,         best  performed  with  the  chiropractic  adjustment.

Dr. Victor E. Dolan,   Doctor of Chiropractic;   Diplomat, American Chiropractic Board of Sport Physicians; Diplomat, American Academy of Pain Management; Certified Clinical Nutritionist(IAACN); FIRST  Chief of Chiropractic  in  a  Hospital  in  New York State(DHSI);  As  Seen  in  PREVENTION  Magazine


Lower  Back  Pain  (LBP):        Low  Back  Pain  can be caused by many different things. Big, BAD, catastrophic things like a tumor or a cancer can cause low back pain(only a proper exam by a licensed doctor, like your Doctor of Chiropractic, or your family Doctor of Medicine, can evaluate your signs and symptoms, and perhaps refer for testing).  

Big, bad things like a Herniated Disc, sciatica, possible fracture or dislocation can cause LBP(again, best evaluated by your DC or MD, and perhaps referral).  

Bad things, like  - Sprains, Strains, contusion, or Vertebral Subluxation Complex(all very efficiently diagnosed and treated by your Doctor Of Chiropractic.  

LBP can come from a motor vehicle accident, sport injury, slip, trip, fall, arthritis, lifting improperly, or even bad posture in standing, sitting or sleeping.  All of these things often have a Lumbar(Low Back) Vertebral Subluxation involved.              Vertebral   Subluxation   Complex    (a.k.a.  ‘subluxation’)

The vertebral subluxation complex is the underlying cause of many healthcare problems. A subluxation interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system(the master system which controls and coordinates all function within the body) and may cause various other conditions, symptoms and problems.

This is a serious condition identified by its five parts:    Spinal Kinesiopathology:         This is fancy way of saying the bones of the spine have lost their normal motion and position. It restricts your ability to turn and bend. It sets in motion the other four components.    Neuropathophysiology:         Improper spinal function can choke, stretch, or irritate delicate nerve tissue. The resulting nerve system dysfunction can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.    Myopathology:          Muscles supporting the spine can weaken, atrophy, or become tight and go into spasm. The resulting scar tissue changes muscle tone, requiring repeated spinal adjustments.    Histopathology:         A rise in temperature from an increase in blood and lymph supplies result in swelling and inflammation. Discs can bulge, herniate, tear, or degenerate. Other soft tissues may suffer permanent damage.    Pathophysiology:         Bone spurs and other abnormal bony growths attempt to fuse malfunctioning spinal joints. This spinal decay, scar tissue, and long-term nerve dysfunction can cause other systems of the body to malfunction. The Vertebral Subluxation Complex describes what happens when spinal bones lose their normal movement patterns and position.         Automobile accidents, improper lifting, improper posture, alcohol, emotional stress, chemical imbalances, and long periods of sitting can cause the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.          Vertebral  Subluxation  cannot be corrected through chemicals(medicine), stretching, yoga, vitamins or physical therapy alone.  Subluxation- a neuro/skeletal/muscular- mechanical-  problem requires a mechanical   correction-  -  -    a manipulation,     best performed with the chiropractic adjustment.  Only a Doctor of Chiropractic will evaluate you for VSC- as well as the other possible pathologies. #################################################

Disc BULGES ?, I would certainly recommend Chiropractic spinal adjustment, as well as noninvasive spinal decompression, infrasound, ultrasound, interferential, SOT and Activator.  I would also recommend anti-inflammatory nutritional supplementation:

Anti- inflammatory:

Proteolytic enzymes are beneficial to counteract the inflammation. Bromelain is an example of a proteolytic enzyme.

Essential fatty acids are precursors to potent antiinflammatory substances. Essential fatty acids include fish oil, flax oil, evening primrose oil, black currant seed oil and borage oil. Essential fatty acids include omega-3 fatty acids(fish and flax oil) and omega-6 fatty acids(black currant seed oil, borage oil and evening primrose oil).

Quercetin is a potent bioflavonoid, in fact, it has been named, "the most important flavonoid" by a leading peer-reviewed journal(Nutr. Cancer 1993, 20:21-9). It is a powerful antioxidant, and Michael Murray suggests that, "quercetin appears indicated in virtually all inflammatory and allergic conditions"(Murray, M. Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements, 1996, Prima Publ., Rocklin, Ca. p. 327).

Vitamin C is essential to the healing process. Bioflavonoids in general operate to stabilize cell membranes, decrease the release of inflammation mediators and inhibit the inflammatory process(Amella et al. Inhibition of mast cell histamine release by flavonoids and bioflavonoids. Planta Medica 1985;51:16-20).

Both calcium and magnesium relax the muscles. Magnesium inhibits inflammatory prostaglandin synthesis(Fontana-Klaiber, H., and Hogg, B. Therapeutic effects of magnesium in dysmenorrhea. Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax 79(16): 491-494, 1990).

Zinc promotes healing.

Boswellia serrata is reported to have strong analgesic(pain-relieving) effects(Kar, A. & Menon, M.K. Life Sci. 1969;8:1023), along with antiinflammatory and anti-arthritic activity.

Tumeric research has demonstrated excellent antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric, and especially of curcumin, which is the active component of turmeric that is responsible for the yellow pigment(Reddy AP & Lokesh, BR. Mol Cell Biochem. 1992;111-117). The antiinflammatory properties are due to the ability of curcumin to reduce histamine levels and possibly increase

natural cortisone production by the adrenal glands(Aora RB, Basu N, Kapoor V, Jain AP. Antiinflammatory studies on Curcuma longa(turmeric). Ind.J.Med Res. 1971:59:1289-95).

Ginger is an herb known mostly for its therapeutic effect in nausea. Ginger also has powerful abilities to combat inflammation, and these antiinflammatory effects are well-backed by scientific studies. Ginger contains phenolic compounds that inhibit the enzymes responsible for generating important mediators of pain and inflammation in more than one pathway(Kiuchi et. al.

Inhibition of prostaglandin and leukotriene biosynthesis by gingerols and diarylheptanoids. Chem Pharm Bull. 1992;40:387-91).

Milk thistle has always had a strong reputation for supporting liver function and pathways of detoxification. Removal of wastes and toxins is crucial in decreasing inflammation. Silymarin, which is one of the main ingredients in milk thistle, has an antiinflammatory effect on blood platelets(Altorjay I et

al. Acta Physiol Hung 1992;80:375-80), and the ability to inhibit free radical production and leukotriene synthesis means that it prevents the powerful, inflammatory leukotrienes from wreaking havoc in the body(Alarcon de la Lastra, C. et al. Planta Medica 1995;61:116-119; Fiebrich F and Kock H. Experientia


Herbs to aid in muscle relaxation include valerian, passion flower, kava kava, and scullcap. Do not use kava kava if liver disease is suspect.

White willow is an antiinflammatory and analgesic agent. White willow was used as far back as the Middle Ages to reduce pain and fevers. The salicylates found in the white willow bark are responsible for the anti-inflammatory and anti-fever effects. Acetylsalicylic acid, otherwise known as aspirin, is chemically similar to the salicylates.


from another handout I use in my office , for disc herniation healing support:

The healing process may be supported by using those nutrients known to improve the integrity of connective tissue including:

As a well-known orally-effective building block for connective tissue, glucosamine sulfate is indicated even though most of the research has focused on the restoration of joint cartilage tissue.  Glycosaminoglycans(GAGs) are key components of connective tissue throughout the body, and glucosamine sulfate has the best track record for supporting the integrity of these compounds.

Bromelain has demonstrated significant antiinflammatory activity in numerous studies.  Patients using proteolytic enzymes have demonstrated significant reductions in pain and inflammation and faster recovery rates than placebo groups.

Fish oil or flax oil supplementation is very beneficial for the management of inflammation.  Black currant seed oil, evening primrose oil or borage oil are omega-6 fatty acids that also aid in inflammation.

Research suggests bioflavonoids may possess pain and inflammation reducing activity by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, lipooxygenase, and phospholipase.  Quercetin is a potent bioflavonoid.  Vitamin C works synergistically with bioflavonoids.

A multi-vitamin and mineral is essential for comprehensive support.

Numerous studies have demonstrated significant antiinflammatory activity with the following herbs:  boswellia, feverfew, ginger and turmeric(curcumin).

Valerian, passion flower, kava kava and scullcap are known muscle relaxants.  Do not use kava kava if liver disease is suspect.

Most patients recover from nerve root pain without surgery within three months.

Traction techniques may or may not be of much help, according to the specific needs of the patient.  RE-EVALUATE

Eat fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, and herring as a source of omega 3's(found in fish oils).

Eat unprocessed, unrefined foods with emphasis on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, lean meats, nuts, seeds and essential fatty acids from cod liver oil, flax seed oil, olive oil, walnut oil, etc.

Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of filtered water daily.  AT  LEAST


I hope all of this information helps you.  My recommendation boils down to seeing a Doctor of Chiropractic, or someone that practices similarly.  I think this conservative, non-invasive treatment could help you a great deal.

Good Luck, I wish you Good Health Naturally!
