Symptoms of a Herniated Disc
A disc provides a cushion between the bones in your back- the vertebrae. The discs allow for smooth movements and eliminate any pain from vertebrae touching vertebrae. Discs also act as a glue to hold the vertebrae in position. If a disc herniates or bulges, the protective covering of the cushiony material has been compromised. This may be due to an accident or from a bone spur on the vertebrae. As a result, the material that typically remains encased between the vertebrae is now leaking out. When a disc is out of place, it places pressure on the nerves that exit the spine. This is where your source of pain begins. The nerves are struggling to retain their space and send easy signals, but are being weighed down by the bulging disc. You may feel:
- pain in your back, arms, feet or legs
- weakness in your extremities
- numbness in your arms, legs, hands or feet
- muscle spasms
- neck stiffness or limited back mobility
- tingling or burning sensation down your arms or legs
Chiropractic Benefits for Herniated Discs
A herniated disc can occur at any of the spaces from your neck to your tail bone. Our chiropractors evaluate your spine to determine the location of the bulging disc. With gentle chiropractic adjustments to position the vertebrae off the disc, your pain immediately reduces. As our chiropractors continue to manipulate the vertebrae, your body learns to remain in a healthier alignment. Once the pressure is reduced and our doctors are able to decrease inflammation, your body is encouraged to move the disc back into its normal position. The goal of chiropractic care is to place your body in a position in which it heals itself. Herniated discs can be healed and a strong, straight spine is the key. Our chiropractors also educate you on ways to support a healthy spinal posture. We show you the benefits of exercises to strengthen supporting muscles. We also teach you ways to organize your desk to reduce pressure on your spine. Call total health Chiropractic today at 423-899-0309 for your free consultation and herniated disc relief.
