Chiropractor Herniated Disc Therapy

for the Numbness, Tingling, or Burning Back and Neck Pain

Relieve your lower back pain without prescription medications

Chiropractic care for a herniated disc involves non-surgical treatment to help you return to normal as quickly as possible. Herniated discs are not only called slipped discs, but also “bulging” or “ruptured” discs.

When cracks form in the outer layer of a disc, it’s no longer able to fully perform its function of providing flexibility to the spine, as well as acting as a shock absorber and shock distributor. This cracking can lead to numbness, tingling, or major pain due to bulging of the material inside the disc into the surrounding tissue or onto the nerves in the area.

Your first visit for chiropractor herniated disc therapy will include a check to see if your reflexes are working properly, and whether there are any signs that you have lost muscle strength in the area. We’ll then check for any loss of sensation and possibly suggest an MRI or X-ray so we can examine the area further.

Once we know the exact nature of the problem, we will recommend a course of herniated disc treatment. This could include spinal manipulation of the spine and other techniques designed to eliminate your symptoms and relieve your pain, such as spinal decompression for herniated discs. Each patient’s situation is unique, and will require a unique treatment plan. Factors that go into determining what type of chiropractor disc herniation therapy include your age, pain level, overall health and your activity level.
