Chiropractic Treatment for a Slipped Disc
A slipped or herniated disc is a common spinal condition that can cause excruciating pain and discomfort. This condition occurs when the soft gel-like material within a spinal disk protrudes through a tear in the disc's outer layer. Our chiropractor, Dr. Farah Malik, can provide effective chiropractic treatment if you have a slipped disk and the back pain that comes with it.
Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, IL, offers high-quality chiropractic care to patients suffering from slipped discs and the associated back pain accompanying that condition.
What Are Slipped Disks?
Slipped discs often result in localized pain that can radiate to the surrounding areas. When the protruding disc material compresses nearby nerves, it can lead to debilitating pain, numbness, tingling sensations, and muscle weakness. The specific location of the herniated disc determines where you feel the pain.
Our treatment focuses on the musculoskeletal system, emphasizing the spine's alignment and body mechanics. We use various techniques to alleviate pain caused by slipped discs and promote natural healing. Here are some methods we use:
- We employ gentle spinal manipulations to realign the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the slipped disks and surrounding nerves. This technique helps enhance spinal mobility, decrease inflammation, and alleviate pain.
- We may also use spinal decompression therapy, which involves gentle stretching and traction of the spine using a motorized table. This technique helps create negative pressure, relieving pressure on the slipped disc.
Benefits and Considerations
Our chiropractic care for slipped discs offers several advantages. It is non-invasive and drug-free, reducing the risk of side effects commonly associated with traditional treatment. Secondly, chiropractic treatment focuses on the root cause of pain, rather than undeviating symptoms. That said, our chiropractic care provides effective pain management.
