Disc Disorders

Your Sebastian Chiropractor Provides Pain Relieving Treatment for Disc Disorders

Discs separating each of your vertebrae are spongy pads of tough tissue essential to keeping your spine flexible and healthy. The exterior of vertebral discs is made of fibrous tissues while the interior is more gelatinous. Vertebral discs also connect vertebrae to each other so that your spine remains remarkably flexible and in alignment from your neck to your tailbone.When a disc disorder prevents these gel-like cushions from protecting vertebrae during movement, you may start feeling a dull ache that quickly develops into chronic back pain and stiffness. Disc degenerative disorders are frequently diagnosed by your Sebastian chiropractor as herniated, bulging or slipped discs. Chiropractic care can relieve disc degeneration pain by aligning the spine to remove pressure off discs and spinal nerves without drugs or surgery.disc disorders treatment from your sebastian chiropractor

What is a Bulging Disc?

When a disc bulges, this means the disc is protruding out from between vertebrae. Normal discs should remain evenly aligned with vertebrae to provide maximum protection of the spine. Unfortunately, unless a bulging disc is pressing against sensitive spinal nerves, the only way to know for certain if you have a bulging disc is by having your Vero Beach FL chiropractors examine your spine and possibly order diagnostic imaging tests, such as MRIs.  Magnetic resonance imaging uses injectable contrast techniques to provide x-ray images of specific body tissues so your chiropractor can make an accurate diagnosis. MRI scans of bulging discs will show bulging tissue as lighter areas compared to normal tissues.

What are Herniated and Slipped Discs?

Herniated discs are discs that develop tears in their outer layers. These tears can allow some of the gelatinous fluid to protrude outside the disc and reduce the ability of the disc to protect vertebrae. In addition, protruding disc tissues may press on nerves and cause pain, weakness, and numbness in the legs. Herniated discs are sometimes referred to as slipped or ruptured discs, although discs may not be entirely ruptured or moved out of place. By listening to you describe your symptoms and giving you a chiropractic examination, your Palm Bay chiropractors can develop an effective treatment plan for restoring disc health and relieving pain.

Chiropractic Treatments for Degenerative Disc Disorders

Spinal adjustments, decompression therapy, and physiotherapy are all excellent methods for treating degenerative disc disorders without surgery or drugs. Adjustments involve your Sebastian chiropractor manually manipulating your spine to restore normal positioning of discs and eliminate nerve compression. Spinal decompression complements adjustment treatments by further decreasing pressure on spinal nerves using a traction table to gently and therapeutically stretch your spine.  In addition, spinal decompression therapy reduces disc pressure to allow nutrients and oxygenated blood to flow freely into damaged discs.

Realigning your spine not only relieves back, neck and shoulder pain but may also treat other conditions such as migraines, whiplash, and fibromyalgia. Vero Beach chiropractors recommend periodic adjustments to reduce your risk of suffering disorders worsened by a misaligned spine and to keep all body systems operating at peak efficiency.
