Spinal discs are small structures, but they can cause significant problems when they’re bulging. It causes pain and decreases a person’s mobility. And the worst part is that they can strike anyone at any time. Back and neck pain are quite common complaints among those who visit us at Optimize Chiropractic in Cornelius for disc injuries.
Most back and neck pain is insignificant, and regular chiropractic adjustments can provide some relief. Herniated discs are a common cause of back and neck pain but are a more severe issue. Herniated discs occur when the rubber pad supporting the spinal disc slips out of place.
What Can Cause Disc Injuries?
A herniated disc, or bulging disc, is a condition that causes a disc to bulge outside of the average radius in the spine. When this happens, a person may not even know anything is wrong until the bulging disc is pressing up against the nerve in the spinal column, causing pain.
Depending on its location on the spine, a herniated disc can cause pain and loss of range of motion. At Optimize Chiropractic, we understand just how painful and difficult it can be to suffer from this unbearable spine condition.
How Can Chiropractors Help Disc Injuries?
We will examine your entire spine, not just the affected area. This way, we’ll be able to determine if joint dysfunction or a restriction somewhere else along the spine or in the body is to blame for the added stress and strain on your disc. We also utilize adjustment methods designed to address joint restriction and dysfunction, which helps relieve symptoms and gets the body working as it should for healing.
Our chiropractor will then treat the spine and provide you with advice on at-home care for your individual needs, which typically includes exercise and dietary recommendations. Chiropractic care is a reliable and effective option for the treatment of bulging discs. If you would like more information, discuss it with the chiropractors at Optimize Chiropractic.
