Back or neck pain is often caused by the spongy cartilage protecting your vertebrae rupturing or tearing. The cartilage in your spine acts as a shock absorber and protects your vertebrae, but if the disc moves out of place it can press on a nerve, causing intense pain.
A herniated disc can occur anywhere along your spine, but it’s most commonly seen in your lower back and lumbar spine, because of the intense pressure and range of motion that your lower back is responsible for on a day-to-day basis. In rare cases, a herniated disc in your upper spine can put pressure on your nerves that potentially results in migraines, luckily our team can specialized a chiropractic treatment plan for migraines as well as your slipped disc.
If you’re searching for a chiropractor for a herniated disc, our team at Quantum Care can ensure that your back pain is put to rest. Through diagnostic procedures regarding your body mechanics such as neurological, reflex, and strength tests, we’ll get an overall understanding of your complete spine health to customize your chiropractic treatment plan for a herniated disk in your lower back.
In order to relieve the pressure that your herniated disc is placing on other nerve endings and your vertebrae, we’ll conduct spinal manipulation therapy, apply the Graston Technique, stretching exercises, and low-force techniques that can coax your vertebrae back to their proper alignment.
In rare cases of degenerative disc disease, where the cartilage gradually disintegrates on it’s own, we can work with you to create a plan that improves motion in your spine and greatly reduces inflammation. Meanwhile we’re committed to working on an overall wellness plan that will get back your flexibility, improve your range of motion, and greatly reduce your back pain.
