Herniated Discs Can Be Helped With Chiropractic
Is your quality of life affected by lower back pain? You may be one of the many Americans dealing with a herniated disc. This form of chronic pain can be extremely debilitating and place limits on your physical functionality. Traditional solutions often involve invasive surgeries - but there’s another way.
At Eldorado Chiropractic in McKinney, TX, our doctors have years of experience effectively treating herniated disc pain with chiropractic.
Herniated Discs Explained
Your spinal discs are made up of two parts: the nucleus, a malleable, gel-like center, and the annulus, a tough outer layer. Time or injury-related wear and tear can manifest in the form of excessive pressure on the vertebrae. When this force becomes too much for the disc, part of the nucleus can push through a tear in the annulus. The bulge created by this process often presses down on the spinal nerves, causing radiating pain and inflammation. While a mild case may go away on its own, most herniated disc problems will continue to plague patients unless they seek out a form of medical treatment.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Unlike typical treatments for lower back pain, which can involve intricate surgeries and complicated rosters of medications, chiropractic is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime or prescription drugs. The process consists of a series of small adjustments that gently correct any spinal misalignments and reduce the overall pressure on your herniated disc. By giving your disc more room to breathe, chiropractic decreases the amount of force applied to your spinal nerves.
