Chiropractic Care for Slipped Disc Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

spinal disc herniation is a medical condition affecting the spine due to trauma, lifting injuries, or idiopathic causes, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an inter-vertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings. Tears in the disc ring may result in the release of inflammatory chemical mediators which may directly cause severe pain, even in the absence of nerve root compression. The condition is widely referred to as a slipped disc, discs do not actually “slip,” a disc may move, split, or rupture.  If it presses on a nerve, it can cause back pain or sciatica.

The Chiropractic Approach To Slipped Disc Care

Chiropractic has been a natural solution helping people with a variety of disc problems and most patients can recover very satisfactorily without resorting to surgical intervention. After an initial consultation, the chiropractor will take x-rays and possibly an MRI to assess the severity of the bulging discs. He will then develop a program that involves the use of low-force techniques to manipulate the spine. He’ll locate and correct areas of the spine interfering with the proper nervous system control of your body.

Chiropractic adjustments help to restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones, reducing nervous system involvement. If caught before permanent damage, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape by restoring proper motion and position of affected spinal joints.

If you are experiencing painful symptoms from a herniated disc please don’t hesitate to call AdvaCare Clinic today at 952-835-6653 to schedule an appointment.
