Understanding the Condition and How a Chiropractor Can Help

Non Surgical DecompressionHerniated or bulging disks can cause painful symptoms ranging from backaches to shooting pain down one or both legs. This condition occurs when the soft cushion-like discs located between the vertebrae in your spine become damaged or move out of place. If you are experiencing herniated or bulging discs, it’s crucial to seek chiropractic care promptly to avoid worsening your condition.

What Are Herniated or Bulging Discs?

Herniated or ruptured discs occur when the outer layer of the disc tears. Next, allowing the gel-like substance inside to leak out. In contrast, bulging discs cause the disc to expand beyond its normal space or shape in between the vertebrae. In addition, putting pressure on the spinal column or nearby nerve roots.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

At first, it might seem counterintuitive that a chiropractor could help back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs without surgery or medication. However, chiropractors are specially trained to address various conditions of the musculoskeletal system. In addition, spinal adjustments can help alleviate the pressure on your nerves.

Chiropractic adjustments target the spinal vertebrae and help restore proper alignment. Next, leading to better range of motion and improved nerve function. A chiropractor might also use soft tissue therapy or specific exercises to concentrate on targeted muscle groups. Finally, further improving your condition and reducing your pain.
