Natural Relief for Disc Pain
Are you suffering from chronic disc pain? This common condition typically begins to affect people in their forties and fifties, but has been known to present itself in younger adults as well. It’s not unheard of for less severe cases to go away on their own, but most disc problems require advanced treatment and rehabilitation to fully heal.
At Chapman Health Group in Leesburg, FL, our resident chiropractor has extensive experience treating patients with disc pain.
The Science Behind Disc Pain
The vertebrae in your spine are composed of two main parts: the nucleus and the annulus. The nucleus is the gel-like center of the disc, and the annulus is the hard outer layer. A ruptured or herniated disc is formed when part of the nucleus is able to spill through a tear in the annulus.
This protrusion can press down on the surrounding nerves, causing pain and inflammation. Any vertebrae in the spine can become herniated, whether it’s located in the lumbar, thoracic, or cervical portions.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Typical treatments for disc pain usually involve invasive surgeries and a laundry list of pain-relieving medications. These methods may alleviate the symptoms of disc pain, but rarely address the core issue. Without focusing on the root of your pain, these treatments are only a band-aid solution. Chiropractic care gets to the source.
With a series of gentle adjustments that correct spinal misalignments, pressure is taken off of your damaged disc. Chiropractic is non-invasive and drug-free, so you can relieve your pain the natural way.
