Spinal Disc Problems
Spinal disc problems have commonly been described as a "slipped" disc. Because the disc's position within the spine, the disc can not "slip"!
The "disc" is a cartilage that connects and cushions each vertebrae of your spine. In addition to its shock absorbing cushion property, it also provides height for the spinal nerve to exit the spinal column.
A disc can not "slip", but it can wear thin, bulge, protrude, tear, and even herniate. Each condition of the spinal disc can happen due to a one-time trauma or degenerative wear and tear over time. Disc problems can range from minor discomfort to severe debilitating pain rendering a person totally incapacitated. The sooner a disc condition can be addressed, often the better and quicker the recovery process.
The obvious cause of spinal disc problems is trauma. A one-time injury such as a slip/fall, sporting injury, improper lifting, and motor vehicle accident.
Other common causes are repetitive stresses such as prolong sitting, poor ergonomics, weak standing posture, deconditioned muscles, and repetitive sports like golf.
The Chiropractic approach is focused on addressing the root cause of the spinal disc condition. A thorough consultation, examination, and x-rays of the lumbosacral spine (lower back and tailbone area), will determine your spinal health and Chiropractic care. A program of Chiropractic adjustments complimented with a stretching and strengthening program will aid in the resolution of spinal disc problems.
