Find out how chiropractic treatment could improve your herniated disc symptoms.
If you’ve been diagnosed with a herniated disc chances are pretty good that you are looking for the best way to manage and even eliminate your discomfort. If you’ve tried other treatments without much success maybe it’s time you turned to your Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg, MD chiropractor for nonsurgical ways to treat your back pain.
What is a slipped disc?
Throughout most of the spine, there are discs that separate and cushion each vertebrae. The purpose of these discs is to absorb shock and offer the spine more flexibility. Without discs your spine wouldn’t work properly. When you hear the term slipped disc it doesn’t really mean that it has slipped, but rather it refers to a herniated or bulging disc. When cracks start to happen on the outer layers of the discs due to trauma, aging or a disease, the softer center of the disc begins to bulge out.
How can my chiropractor in Clarksburg, Urbana, Potomac and Gaithersburg help?
When you come in for an evaluation we will examine your entire spine to study its overall function and health. Since an issue in one part of the spine can affect other areas we need to look at the spine as a whole.
Once we’ve discussed your symptoms, your health and performed a physical exam we can determine whether or not your symptoms are due to a disc injury. The type of disc problem you are having will influence the type of treatment plan we ultimately create for you. Some of the treatment options may include:
- Spinal manipulation/adjustment
- Manual therapy
- Therapeutic exercises
While this is just a general overview of what your chiropractor may use to treat your problems, during your consultation we will be able to create a more specialized and detailed plan that is designed to address your pain, activity level and general health.
