Herniated Discs

Your spine is the focal point of your central nervous system, and it plays a major role in your overall health. Due to an injury or degenerative condition, the soft tissues inside the spine can be forced outwards and press against nearby nerves, leading to a condition known as a herniated disc. This complex condition affects adults of all ages and can produce debilitating symptoms that alter your everyday life. Rest assured that no matter what health challenges you’re facing, our team at Maximum Health Clinic of Chiropractic can help. We provide holistic services to keep your entire family healthy. Our innovative treatments are designed to solve herniated discs and other spinal conditions, so learn more about our non-invasive procedures at a private wellness consultation.

What is a Herniated Disc? 

A spinal disc is made of soft, jelly-like tissues inside a tougher exterior. Certain health conditions, such as an injury or age-related degeneration, can damage the spinal bones. When the disc ruptures, the soft inside tissues are pushed out and compress nearby nerves. This can occur at any place in the spine and result in significant pain, tingling and numbness that extends down the arm or leg. 

While some individuals have no symptoms, herniated discs sometimes cause pain that impacts your ability to function. Symptoms often occur in the lower back and can lead to problems in other regions, including shooting pain in the leg or buttocks. Fortunately, it’s possible to find relief through chiropractic.

How Chiropractic Can Help

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to health. Navigating chronic pain is easier with a chiropractor’s guidance since we can help you find solutions that work specifically for you. Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for herniated discs. It’s a popular choice for managing pain, especially conditions afflicting the lower back. 

  • Safe and Effective. Many patients ultimately feel better in less time using chiropractic care. Studies point to chiropractic as an effective technique due to its gentle nature. Patients with chronic pain wish to avoid additional discomfort generated by side effects, and holistic treatments allow them to do exactly that.  
  • Whole Body Approach. Chiropractic relieves tension in the spine and helps to promote the body’s natural healing capabilities. Expect long-term benefits from your chiropractic care, as we can help you address various lifestyle factors affecting your condition as well, including poor posture, physical inactivity and stress.     
  • Long Term Relief. Herniated discs can be treated using certain chiropractic techniques, such as the diversified technique, activator method and more. These hands-on adjustments provide lasting relief, especially when done over the course of several weeks. Herniated discs often respond positively to chiropractic treatment, and patients achieve boosted mobility.
