At Lifetime Chiropractic, we offer treatment for herniated disc pain. A herniated or bulging disc, is simply a disc in the vertebra that is bulging out of its proper place. Vertebrae are separated by soft cartilage-like discs. Discs are nourished by blood that is squished around by the vertebra it sits between. If vertebra movement does not occur, blood flow does not reach the disc causing it to dry and tear; this results in a herniated disc.
Bulging discs cause pain if they end up putting pressure upon nerves located in the spinal column. Treatment for herniated disc pain may consist of chiropractic physical therapy exercises, chiropractic adjustment, surgery or a combination of treatments.
Chiropractic Physical Therapy
Chiropractic physical therapy is usually the first non-invasive treatment implemented to relieve herniated disc pain. We offer chiropractic physical therapy plans that will utilize proper lifting techniques, good posture and exercises that can help you prevent any further aggravation. If you are suffering from a bulging disc, we suggest that you also take advantage of our therapeutic massage service. Massage therapy can help strengthen your back muscles to relieve your pain.
Chiropractic adjustment seeks to realign your vertebrae to take pressure off of your spinal nerves. This can be especially effective for herniated discs.
Compressed vertebrae may cause herniated discs. Spinal decompression therapy seeks to relieve pressure off pinched nerves in the spinal column in order to relieve pain caused by a bulging disc.
Injections can be used to relieve pain surrounding a site undergoing pain from a herniated disc. In our Albuquerque office, we use pain relieving, homeopathic remedies in place of steroids.
