Solve Spinal Disc Problems with Chiropractic Care

October 28, 2014

Spinal disc problems are often thought to be the cause of back pain. However, disc problems are only responsible for a small percentage of patient complaints. Although surgery has been a solution for many to relieve their pain, it has been discovered that chiropractic care can relieve your pain in a natural, non-invasive manner.

First off, it’s important to understand that discs are attached to the top and bottom of your vertebrae. As tough outer rings similar ligaments, these thick rings provide shock absorption and make your spine flexible. In the center of these rings is a jelly-like substance that also provides shock absorption and helps with spine movement.

Three of the most common disc ailments are caused by:

  • Disc bulges- The outermost layer of the disc forms tears, which can be painful for a short period of time.
  • Disc herniation- Tears in the nucleus of the disc allows it to protrude through the disc’s outer layer. This condition can cause nerve compression and, in serious cases, compress the spine.
  • Disc degenerative disease- Over time, the nucleus can lose some water and the vertebrae will form bone spurs, which can narrow the space between discs.

How to get relief from disc problems:

  • As soon as possible after an injury or upon feeling serious pain, see your chiropractor for a detailed analysis. They will provide you with a care plan that may include several different techniques to assist in your recovery.
  • Apply ice, especially in the beginning of your care.
  • Spinal adjustments performed by your doctor of chiropractic will remove nerve interference and improve your overall health, helping your body heal faster.
