The proper chiropractic care can alleviate pain and address issues that are keeping you from operating at your best. One of our experienced doctors will examine you prior to your adjustment, to see which methods are best suited to your needs. Be sure to inform the doctor about any areas that are giving you trouble. Adjustments help our joints and bones get back into alignment, which allows our nervous system to properly work throughout our body. Read on to learn more about what can cause misalignment and pain, and why getting regular chiropractic adjustments is an excellent step in overall wellness.
DISC BULGES AND HERNIATIONS
Disc bulges and herniations are conditions in which the outer edges of the discs, located between the vertebrae, are damaged. This causes the jelly-like center to bulge or be pushed out. This is a surprisingly common issue and it is often, but not always, very painful. Many people who have this condition feel nothing at all. The quality and intensity of it, for those who experience pain, depends on the type and position of the herniation. If the damaged disc is irritating a surrounding nerve, shooting or stabbing pain along with weakness in the legs is often severe.
It is important that this issue is properly identified and promptly treated to avoid further damage. Our chiropractors will thoroughly assess your back to determine the extent of the issue and the appropriate treatment to prevent worsening of the herniation, and help provide relief from the associated pain.
Subluxation is a medical term describing a misalignment in the vertebral column. There are a wide variety of causes, including physical stress, trauma, and toxins. Subluxations are often quite painful and can disrupt normal movement. Subluxations are one of the most commonly overlooked contributors to back pain. Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct this issue using non-invasive adjustment techniques. Getting adjusted can help minimize these subluxations, and provide a better communication pathway for your nervous system. This means you can feel and operate better throughout your day.
