Spinal discs are soft tissues between vertebrae that act as shock absorbers for the spine. Although there is not much chance for these firmly-placed discs to move between vertebrae, a slipped disc occurs when the disc bulges and herniates, which causes a tremendous amount of pain in the back. When a disc injury happens, it releases a substance that causes the surrounding nerves and muscles to swell and become irritated, pushing painful symptoms out to other parts of the body. Disc injuries can be closely related to poor disc health, which can be caused by poor posture, lack of exercise, and inadequate nutrition.
Mild cases of disc injuies may be treated by simply stretching and exercise. Advanced cases may require other types of treatments, including decompression and other extensive procedures. However, before considering surgery, visit Canyon Chiropractic and consult with our doctors to see if chiropractic care can help you recover from your disc injury. Chiropractic care has helped thousands of people recover from disc injury symptoms and pain by helping them relieve pressure on the nerves and allowing the body to heal naturally.
