Herniated (or Slipped) disc and Chiropractic

When someone’s suffering from back pain, its only a matter of time until someone drops the dreaded word “hernia”. It a diagnosis no one wants to hear. And yet, with the right treatment even severe herniated discs can recover completely.

What is a herniated disc?

A disc herniates when there is too much unstable movement around it for a long time. Every time a spinal bone (a vertebra) slides on the disc cushioning it from the bone below, the disc will get slightly damaged. When this happens often enough, the outside of the disc can rip, causing the softer centre to stick out. If this pushes on a nerve it can cause immense pain in various body parts, depending on where the nerve goes. A hernia in the neck may push on a nerve going into the arm and hand. In the low back it could cause pain in the leg.

Who can help you when you have a herniated disc?

Once this happens, its crucial that the pressure on the nerve is released. In extreme cases this may require surgery, but most of the time a safer, cheaper and quicker option is preferable. Robert Correll is highly trained in recognising a herniated disc and restoring normal movement to the spine in order to relieve the pressure on the nerve, and hence your pain. He is also trained to recognise a disc which cannot be helped with conservative care. That’s why Quiropractico Promover should be your first stop if you believe that you may have a herniated disc.

    He llevado a mi hija con 12 años con una leve escoliosis. Después de ver con el tacto y la delicadeza que la ha tratado, yo también me he puesto en sus manos. Un excelente profesional. Desde la primera consulta ya notas el cambio.
