Re: Herniated Disc

What kind of symptoms does your fiance have? An MRI is really only the way you can see if in fact he has a herniated disc. I can't really blame the chiropractor as his fees sound reasonable and so does his treatment plan. Typical initial treatment plan for a patient with herniated disc is daily to 3X week for 16 weeks. Then treatment would decrease. Maybe go in for adjustments only that is typically 30-40 a treatment. What all is included in the treatment?
