Bulging Disc Back Pain Relief Treatment in Wheat Ridge, Lakewood and Edgewater
Bulging discs may cause shooting pain, numbness and tingling—or no pain at all. Typically, a bulging disc is a herniated disc injury (often incorrectly called a “slipped disc”) waiting to happen. Regular chiropractic care with your Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health chiropractor can catch bulging discs before they become painful, and provide treatment for disc injuries that already hurt. Schedule an appointment today if you live in the Wheat Ridge, Lakewood or Edgewater area.
Symptoms of a Bulging Disc
Bulging discs don’t always cause symptoms. You might walk around for months with one without knowing it. But eventually, something will happen to worsen the bulge so it pinches nerves, or causes a complete disc herniation (which does cause pain).
The bulging disc location can affect what symptoms appear. If the disc is in the neck, headaches, migraines, neck pain or arm pain may manifest. A disc injury in the mid back may cause back pain, arm pain and other pains associated with nerves in that region. A bulging disc in the lower back can cause lower back pain and sciatica.
What Causes Bulging Discs?
Some of the most common bulging disc causes our Lakewood, Edgewater and Wheat Ridge chiropractor treats include:
- Sports Injury—Athletes often experience bulging discs, sometimes from sudden injury, but also from repetitive movement and training ergonomics issues.
- Car Accident Injury—Whiplash often leads to bulging discs in the neck and upper back. Immediate chiropractic care after any auto accident, even a minor one, is essential for preventing a bulging disc from becoming worse.
- Pregnancy—The weight gain and demands on posture for pregnant moms can also cause bulging discs and back pain.
- Poor Posture—Years of poor posture habits gradually weaken intervertebral discs, causing them to bulge and pinch nerves.
Chiropractic Care Works for Bulging Disc Pain Relief
Regular chiropractic care can provide excellent treatment for, and prevention of, bulging discs. Maintaining optimal posture removes uneven pressure from discs and their associated nerves, which provides pain relief, and can prevent a bulging disc from becoming a herniated disc (slipped disc).
