AdvaCare Clinics in Bloomington, MN: Disc Pain Symptom Relief

Discs are the cartilage pads that separate and cushion and help connect the vertebrae that make up your spinal column. These discs allow for spinal movement and flexibility. They serve as shock absorbers between each of the vertebrae and are constantly subjected to the pull of gravity and the torque from everyday movement.

  • Disc problems = “abnormal wear and tear” due to injury or reduced segmental movement, aging, or injury.
  • Function is greatly affected by the alignment of the spine.
  • When a disc(s) bulge, is herniated, or wears out, the disc can press or pinch against a nerve.

Treatment:

Non-Surgical – 

Spinal Decompression Therapy

  • An FDA approved mechanical device designed to decompress spinal joints.
  • Creates a ”negative disc pressure” creating a small vacuum allowing fluid to reenter the disc

Spinal Facet Injections, or Trigger Point Injections

  • Our injection based therapy is performed using a diagnostic ultrasound for pin point accuracy

Starting with a consultation and once your doctor feels spinal decompression is appropriate, he proceeds to perform a complete history and thorough exam. Your specific treatment plan may vary and will be determined after your evaluation. Your Doctor may also recommend medication and/or physical therapy, exercise instruction, heat and muscle stimulation.
