If you are suffering from a disc injury affecting your neck or back, whether it’s recent, or you’ve been told to ‘live with it’, we will likely be able to help you. Chiropractic can help almost all people with disc injuries, both mild and severe, and is a very common reason for visiting us. Chiropractic care of disc injuries is safe, comfortable and effective.
You might be familiar with some of these symptoms – neck, mid or low back pain, stiffness, loss of use and movement, which might spread into your arm, chest or legs. What you feel can vary in how bad it is and where you feel it! It is quite common for disc problems to be felt in the spine, causing neck, mid back and low back problems. Also, disc problems often cause trapped nerves sand result in sciatica and muscle spasms, which can trigger pain in the arms and legs.
Usually you will find that some things make you worse – often using the affected area in certain ways, staying in the same position for too long – or it can just bother you all of the time, whilst some may give you temporary relief – general movement and changing position often. We understand how difficult it is when these problems stop you living and enjoying a normal life.
There are many types of disc injury that we can help you with. The most common cause is that one or more of the bones in your spine can become stuck and out of position. This places pressure on the discs causing them to become damaged (sometimes called bulged, prolapsed or slipping) This also interferes with the nerves that live in your spine and come out of it and into almost every part of your body. Sometimes this can be felt as trapped nerves. Because many of the muscles in your spine fasten to these bones, you may also experience muscle spasm.
Other problems may also add to your disc problem, including pinched/compressed nerves spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, facet joint problems, sacroiliac joint problems and stenosis. These too can usually be helped with Chiropractic care.
