Disc Problems

disc problemsWhat Causes Disc Problems?
Discs are the soft but strong cushions that separate the bones (vertebrae) in your spine and absorb shock as you move. Repeated strain over time, an injury, or sudden, forceful movements can damage discs and irritate nerves, causing pain, numbness, or tingling in your back, legs, neck, and arms.

How Does a Chiropractor Treat Disc Problems?
The doctor is trained to restore the health of your spine. Special chiropractic methods, employing manual decompression, will relieve the irritation that's causing your back pain.

Spinal Adjustments
Your treatment depends on the nature of your disc problem. During a spinal treatment, the doctor gently applies pressure that tractions your spine to increase range of motion in your joints, relieve pressure on irritated nerves, and helps decompress discs and prevent further injury.

Related treatment
The doctor may suggest other types of treatment to relieve pressure on your spinal nerves. These may include ice or heat, massage, electrical stimulation, traction or ultrasound, or trigger point therapy. The doctor can discuss these with you.
