What Are Herniated Discs?
Your spine has soft tissue known as "discs" between the vertebrae. These intervertebral discs are cushion-like structures that sit between the vertebrae of the spine, providing shock absorption and allowing flexibility and movement. A herniated disc is a common spinal condition that occurs when an intervertebral disc's soft, gel-like center pushes out through a tear in the tough outer layer. When this happens, it can cause severe pain. It may also make it difficult for you to bend over or turn your head.
Herniated discs can occur in either your neck or your back. This situation often gets worse if the condition is not treated. Traditional physicians often struggle to treat herniated discs with any treatment method besides surgery.
How Can We Treat Herniated Discs?
The treatment for herniated discs depends on the severity of the condition and the extent of nerve compression. Herniated discs can often be effectively managed with conservative, non-surgical treatments. If your herniated discs are treated at our practice, you won't have to worry about painful or expensive surgery.
We treat herniated discs with a safe and proven process called spinal decompression. This treatment involves a motorized table to stretch the spine gently. Spinal decompression is a painless process to relieve pressure on your discs and provide immediate relief. The negative pressure will allow vital fluids to flow back into your disc. This negative pressure will increase the healing process.
