Each of the vertebrae in your neck and back is spaced by small discs of cartilage. This cushions the relationship between each of the bones and allows your back to be flexible.
Sometimes an injury, unaddressed muscle weakness or an accidental fall can cause one or more of these cartilage discs to slip or move out of their intended position. Sometimes referred to as a ruptured disc, slipped disc, or herniated disc, this problem can irritate spinal nerves.
When this happens you might experience significant pain, discomfort in certain positions, tingling or numbness in the related limbs as well as a weakness in the nearby muscles.
In a situation like this, you should schedule a chiropractic exam from one of the chiropractors at the Health & Wellness Clinic in Layton, Utah. After assessing the nature and severity of the problem our chiropractors Daniel Hendricks, D.C. and Spencer Rollins, D.C. will help you understand your treatment options.
This might include spinal decompression treatments, chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, as well as certain rehabilitation stretches and exercises.
If you live in the Layton, Utah, area and you have been experiencing symptoms of a herniated disc, you should call 801-544-4333 to schedule an exam at the Health and Wellness clinic.
