Slipped Disc

What is a Slipped Disc?

Technically, “slipped disc” is an incorrect term for what is actually happening within your spine. Your intervertebral discs are cushions made from cartilage that are positioned between your vertebrae. Chiropractic doctors tend to think of them as your spine’s “Shock Absorbers”. They have a soft, jellylike center that is protected by a fibrous casing. Pressure on the spine, subluxations, and other traumas can cause the spine to become inflamed, irritated, bulge, or even rupture. All of these conditions are more generally referred to as a “slipped disc”. Symptoms of a disc problem is numbness through your arms and legs and sharp shooting pains through your spine.

How Chiropractic Can Treat Disc Problems

Your chiropractic doctor will begin with a full body examination to understand the cause of the disc problem. We will do any X-rays or recommend an MRI if necessary. Most disc problems can be directly linked to spinal misalignments which your chiropractor will adjust to ensure proper alignments. We have worked with many patients to repair their disc problems and reduce the pain that they feel. If you are interested in seeing how chiropractic can treat and prevent disc problems, schedule a free consultation with our team today.

“During several months, my back treatment received by Dr. Khayal and all his staff the best attention I could ask. They are very professional, attentive, and really caring health providers. They have the patience and take the time to see what your needs are, and never rush you to get out of the office like other doctors do. You may feel assured that you will be treated the way a human should be treated.” – Emilio C.
