Bulging or herniated discs not only cause a lot of pain but can worsen without treatment.
Back pain occurs for many reasons, including ruptured, bulging, or herniated discs. Incorrectly known as a slipped disc, a herniated disc develops when cracks occur in the outer layer of the intervertebral disc that’s located between each vertebra of the spine. When these cracks occur, the material inside the disc can begin to push out, compressing nerve roots and leading to inflammation and pain.
Here at Natural Health Houston, we help to diagnose, treat and manage herniated discs and other spinal complaints. Correct diagnosis is key, with our expert team able to address your back pain and other physical symptoms. There are a number of stages to disc herniation, with different treatment plans available depending on the level of degeneration, such as spinal decompression.
Treatment for herniated discs is based on the presented symptoms and level of herniation. Chiropractors conduct nerve reflex and muscle strength tests in order to make an accurate diagnosis, with spinal manipulation, manual therapy, and therapeutic exercises then carried out as a form of treatment. A number of techniques can be used as part of a chiropractic care program, including flexion-distraction, pelvic blocking, and spinal manipulation.
