Chiropractic Care for a Herniated Disc
Chiropractic adjustments are effective, non-surgical treatments for herniated discs that can help to relieve your pain and get you back to your normal routine. When our chiropractor gently manipulates your spine and realigns your vertebrae, there will be less pressure on compressed nerves and tissues, and blood flow to the affected disc will be restored.
Quite often, pain medication is used to cover up the pain. This is a temporary fix at best because the pain will always return once the medication wears off. By addressing the root cause of your pain with regular chiropractic adjustments, you can hope to experience long-lasting relief.
Trigger Point Injections for Ruptured, Bulging Discs
Trigger point injections can help relieve pain from a ruptured or bulging disc. It forces muscles to relax, reducing inflammation, and relieving tension. A trigger point injection is an injection containing a local anesthetic solution. It is injected into the affected area to provide you with the relief you need.
When you have a bulging disc, the disc sags and gives the appearance of bulging outward. With a ruptured disc, the outer covering of the disc has developed a hole or tear. This causes the center of the disc to leak into the spinal canal. When you visit our chiropractic clinic, we will determine what type of injury you have and if trigger point injections are the right course of action.
Causes & Symptoms of a Herniated Disc
A herniated disc is an issue with one of the rubbery discs positioned between the vertebrae in your spine. Herniated discs usually occur in the low back. It's also called slipped discs or ruptured discs. You can experience a herniated disc from a degenerative condition that has caused the ligaments holding your discs in place to weaken or from a specific injury.
Some of the most common symptoms of a herniated disc include pain in the low back, numbness and tingling, general weakness, and arm or leg pain. The causes of a herniated disc may include certain occupations, smoking, obesity, and leading a sedentary lifestyle.
