Disc Herniation

The spine is composed of...

The spine is composed of  bones (vertebrae) and cushions (discs). Discs contain two layers: a hard exterior and a soft interior. When the disc is damaged and the exterior is cracked, the soft interior can leak out creating pressure on the spinal nerves and causing pain.

 

A herniated disc refers to the amount of pressure being placed on the nerves as well as were the disc is located.

 

Most common signs of a disc herniation include:

-Tingling

-Muscle Weakness

-Muscle Spasms

-Pain

-Numbness

 

To treat your herniated or bulging disc, our doctor will first conduct a diagnostic assessment to locate the source of the problem. He may then recommend spinal decompression or chiropractic manipulation to treat the disc and reduce the pressure on the nerves.
