What Is a Herniated Disc?
There are many different sources of back and neck pain. However, one cause is a herniated or ruptured disc in the spinal column. Your spinal column is made of alternating rings of bone and cartilage, surrounding the spinal cord. The rings of bone, called vertebrae, and discs are designed to shield the spinal cord from any damage or injury.
If you suffer a slip and fall, or an auto accident, or a workplace or sports injury, the shock of the impact on the spinal column can dislodge one of the discs from its usual place, causing it to bulge out abnormally. This condition is referred to as a "herniated disc." A herniated disc can lead to pressure on the spinal cord or upon the adjoining vertebrae. The resulting inflammation can cause pain.
Chiropractors can help treat cases of herniated disc by chiropractic adjustment or spinal decompression. During a spinal adjustment, a chiropractor on our team will attempt to restore spinal alignment by applying precise pressure to your back.
Spinal decompression by using negative pressure generated by gently stretching the spine to help restore the natural spacing between discs and vertebrae. Your spine can then restore itself through the body's own natural healing processes.
Chiropractic techniques like spinal adjustment and spinal decompression are non-invasive and natural. We can help you achieve your wellness goals without recourse to surgery or potentially dangerous drugs.
