Chiropractic Care for Herniated Discs | Scientific Doctor

As we get older, we become more prone to injuries, since our bodies are not as elastic as they once were. This is especially true for the inner material of your spine’s discs. Every year you become a little more at risk of experiencing herniated discs, a condition where a stressed disc ruptures, because the elasticity and water content of your intervertebral discs reduces overall.

 

But herniated discs aren’t only a problem for elderly people. A disc herniation can be experienced by anyone as a result of twisting or lifting the wrong way. And in the event that you currently have a bulging disc, a disc that is hurt but still intact, chances are higher that stress on the affected disc could cause it to rupture or become “herniated”.

 

A herniated disc can cause pain throughout the entire body, not just back pain. And as you might think of surgery being the sole remedy for a herniated disc, there are lots of complementary and alternative treatment option for herniated discs. Chiropractic specializes in supplying non-invasive spinal decompression treatment and therapy methods.

 

A visit to your chiropractor will help you confirm whether you have a herniated disc, a bulging disc, or even some other spinal problem altogether. If you do have an injured disc, a doctor of chiropractic can create an individual treatment plan to assist you avoid surgery and return to enjoying your life, pain-free.

 

What are Herniated Discs?

 

The 24 vertebrae of your spine are separated from one another by pads of cartilage known as intervertebral discs. These discs have an outer coating with a soft interior to cushion against stresses and strains as well as the shocks experienced in your spine. The discs are subject to injury, disease, and degeneration with use over time. Certain activities and types of work increase the risk of discs being damaged or deteriorating.

 

 

Once the soft inside material of a disc pushes or is bulged out through a tear or weakening in the outside covering, the disc is reported to be herniated. Slipped, ruptured and  prolapsed discs are also known as protruding, bulging, or degenerated discs. There are distinctions between these terms, but they really refer to a disc that is no longer in its normal condition and/or position and may require chiropractic care to treat them. Herniated discs trigger pain by impinging on (intruding upon, irritating, and pinching) as well as depriving nerves in the spine.

A healthcare professional can help address back pain along with other herniated disc symptoms. In your first appointment, your chiropractor will go through your medical history, do a physical exam, and carry out orthopedic and neurological tests. The chiropractor will also look over your posture, and may order an X-ray or MRI, if necessary, to aid with the diagnostic procedure and determine the presence of a disc herniation.
