Discs act as a cushion between each of the vertebrae in the spine. When one of these discs is injured or suffers from degeneration, the spine is no longer able to function properly. Signs that you may have one or more deteriorating or injured discs include:
Every movement we make throughout the day, big and small, helps maintain the health of the spine and discs. If this movement is lost, limited, or reduced for a period of time, it puts an increased amount of pressure on the discs. Pressure can create disc bulge, a condition where the discs begin to spill out from between the vertebrae.
When disc bulge goes untreated, it may eventually become a herniated disc. Patients with herniated discs have few treatment options, but chiropractic is one of the best ways to avoid needing surgery. We use spinal adjustments, traction, and an at-home exercise regimen to improve spinal alignment and strengthen the back.
