What is a Herniated Disc?

Your intervertebral discs have been designed to keep your spine working the way that it should. It is constructed with a softer, gel-like center that is encased in a fibrous shell. This gives your spine the ability to bend and turn with ease. However, when there are subluxations, or slight dislocations, within the spine, this will cause additional pressure on the discs, and it can cause the disc to bulge. If the pressure is not relieved, then the disc will eventually rupture, causing the center of the disc to protrude through the casing. This leads to continuous nerve pain that can radiate throughout your body.

How Chiropractic Can Treat a Herniated Disc

In order for a herniated disc to recover, your nervous system needs to be working properly. Your spine needs to be properly aligned to relieve any stress that is being placed on the disc. This will help nutrients and blood flow to the disc so that it can recover properly. Dr. Khayal will do a full examination of your body and your spine.
