Chiropractic Care for Herniated Degenerative Discs
Studies reveal a 90% success rate where herniated disc patients reported considerable improvements within months of receiving chiropractic adjustment.
The chiropractic treatment for disc problems is designed to restore optimal position and motion to the spinal joints. Spinal joints have jelly-like discs between them that keep the spine flexible. These discs have to rely on joint fluid and a poor supply of blood to remain supple and functional. Problems occur when these spinal discs tear, wear out, or herniate – causing an excruciating pain in the back, neck, shoulders, and the legs.
We at Comfort Chiropractic & Acupuncture use a combination of different chiropractic techniques to make targeted adjustments to your spine. These adjustments allow the discs to heal better, decreasing the pain and inflammation they cause.
You can visit us for the treatment of the following disc problems.
A Disc Tear
This is a small tear or crack in the disc’s outer cartilage that allows the disc fluid to leak out. It speeds up disc deterioration.
A Bulging Disc
The supple jelly-like substance in the disc clusters to one side and causes the disc to swell. This causes pressure on the spinal joint and can be painful.
The Herniated Disc
The jelly-like substance in the disc splits through the tough outer cartilage causing pain and pressure.
The Prolapsed Disc
A fragment of the disc separates from it and floats free.
The disc fluid runs out leaving it rough, inflexible, and susceptible to greater damage.
Even though the results cannot be guaranteed, an increasing number of people are successfully avoiding unnecessary pain killers and surgeries by opting for a chiropractor in Raleigh, NC to treat their disc problems.
