Two of the most-common spinal complaints we hear from patients revolve around back and neck pain. In most situations, back and neck pain can be resolved with chiropractic adjustments and improved modalities. Patients dealing with acute injuries such as a herniated disc will need to undergo different treatments to restore the spine to proper health.
What is a Herniated Disc?
Herniated discs occur when the rubbery passing that exists between the spinal discs slips out of place. The spinal disc presses against a nerve, cause minor or extreme pain. A spinal disc can herniate when you stretch or move improperly, such as when you lift heavy objects, and it causes too much pressure on the spinal column. Patients dealing with injuries related to a car accident often deal with herniated discs. No matter how you got the injury, the right treatment is vital to improving your overall health and well-being.
Chiropractic Treatment for Herniated Disc
Anyone suffering from a herniated disc knows just how painful it is. We understand that improper movement could further aggravate the injury. Our experts have helped thousands of patients overcome painful herniated discs with correct adjustments and modalities.
Misalignment of the spine will drastically impact the nervous system, the area that controls pain signals to the brain. Chiropractic adjustments focus on adjusting the disc, so the nerves are no longer being squeezed, causing pain signals to occur. Our initial treatment will focus on removing misalignments to help restore communications within the spinal cord. Reducing inflammation around the herniated disc is the primary focus as we want to help improve your quality of life and help you get out of pain naturally.
