Can you fully recover from a herniated disc?

Usually a herniated disc will heal on its own over time. Be patient, and keep following your treatment plan. If your symptoms don’t get better in a few months, you may want to talk to your doctor about surgery.

How does laser discoplasty treat a herniated spine?

Only a limited amount is removed, allowing the hernia to retract and the spine to remain stable while reducing the pressure inside the disc. Percutaneous laser discoplasty uses laser pulses to heat the herniated disc area and shrink the outer walls. This relieves the hernia and pressure on the disc, allowing it to return to its proper function.

When to use laser for cervical disc replacement?

Cervical disc replacement is normally used on the C3 to C7 discs. Removal of growths (or spinal bone spurs) and disc decompression will reduce the pressure on spinal areas and on the surrounding nerves and tissues.
