Herniated Disc Pain Relief Treatment Wheat Ridge Chiropractor
A “slipped disc” actually refers to a disc herniation. This injury causes dysfunction and pain across the body, depending on where the disc injury is—the lower, mid or upper back. Non-invasive chiropractic care resolves bulging and slipped (herniated) disc pain. If you live in Wheat Ridge, Lakewood or Edgewater, schedule an appointment with your Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health chiropractor for effective, natural pain relief treatment today.
What is a Bulging, Slipped or Herniated Disc Injury?
The flexible, shock-absorbing discs between your vertebrae are firmly attached to the bones on either end—so they don’t slip, but they can break open. The disc’s tough outer membrane can weaken by sudden car accident or sports injury, or from long-term poor posture:
- Bulging disc—Uneven pressure causes small tears in the membrane, allowing the gelatinous nucleus to bulge outward.
- Herniated disc—The disc’s outer membrane cracks open, allowing the nucleus to extrude out, pinching nerves.
Many people have bulging discs without realizing it. Without chiropractic treatment to relieve stress on a bulging disc, it can suddenly herniate, causing severe upper, lower or mid back pain, sciatica, or numbness and tingling in the arms and other symptoms depending on which nerves are pinched.
How Do You Get a Bulging or Herniated Disc Injury?
Athletes can get a bulging or herniated disc from sudden injury or poor training habits. An auto accident can injure discs. Falling, dancing and pregnancy can stress and injure discs. A sneeze or bending over to pick up a toy can cause a sudden disc herniation from a long-term bulge. In addition to regular chiropractic care to check posture, pay attention to daily spinal ergonomics like:
- Sitting correctly at your desk
- Not slouching
- Using your mobile device ergonomically
- Using good form during exercise
