Get Safe Herniated Disc Relief

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

Back pain and the herniated disc is one of the most common medical problems reported. It is a disorder suffered by millions of people all over the world and many right here in the USA. It is costly in terms of medical care, as well as lost wages and productivity.

Employees suffering from herniated discs cost businesses millions of dollars each year and have to deal with their own nightmare of diminished wages when they cannot work due to pain or incapacitation.

Back pain is a symptom of some other problem. For instance, a common injury leading to back pain is a slipped disc. A slipped disc can happen at any time and be caused by the most innocuous events.

Seemingly healthy people who regularly exercise and look after their health suddenly break down in agony with back problems. This injury can strike at any time, as a result of a rigorous sneeze or a missed step, and becomes more likely with age. A chiropractor offers completely natural and holistic methods to successfully alleviate the pain and suffering caused by slipped discs.

The spine is a highly complex mixture of many bones. Vertebrae lock together forming a protective casing for the spinal cord. Each vertebra is separated by a flexible disc acting as a shock absorption system.

Many parts of the body begin to lose water content with age and spinal discs are no different. They can become brittle and rigid. In this state they become far more susceptible to sliding out of position and protruding outwards. The many nerves running along the length of the spine can become pinched when this happens. In addition to back pain, sciatica (or pain in the legs) is a common symptom of this type of injury.

Traditional medicine generally treats back pain with medication and surgery hoping to alleviate the symptoms. Chiropractors take a more aggressive, positive and holistic approach to treating the core problem by administering a series of manipulations and therapies in an effort to rectify the disc’s position.

A chiropractor will perform a full investigation of any injury, including detailed discussions on lifestyle and medical history. A full examination will then be scheduled to acquire the most accurate information possible. Once the diagnostics are complete, an individualized care plan will be designed to strengthen the patient’s musculoskeletal system and allow their body to deal with the problem naturally.

Slipped or herniated disc sufferers can find relief at the hands of a chiropractor. These health care professionals use gentle and holistic treatment methods.
