I had a patient yesterday undergoing a MRI. It shows a large part of his disc has bulged out and is irritating his nerve. The medical doctor in explained about a new procedure to remove the bulge called plasma nucleoplasty. This is successfully used in cases with lower back pain and sciatica caused by disc herniations.
After this medical procedure is done patient can safely return back to chiropractic care to help complete the rehabilitation that is needed for the lower back and spine. Since I was not familiar with the procedure, I wanted to learn more about it and found the video I shared with you above. I hope that you leaned something new too. Having spoken to the doctor performing the procedure he is willing to show me how the plasma nucleoplasty is performed in the operating room.
