The disc has an important function for your spine. It is a sponge-like cushion that rests between the vertebrae. This provides protection when you move your spine so the bones do not rub against each other. A disc may slip out of its proper space and into space which is typically occupied by the nerves. This is known as a herniated disc. You feel pain and discomfort from the nerve signal interference. You may also feel arm or leg weakness, numbness or tingling depending on the location of the herniated disc.
Your disc herniated may occur in your upper, middle or lower back, so Dr. Darcey examines your spine to determine where the concern is located. Once identified, your services to heal your herniated disc may include:
If you notice, our treatment options are designed to work with your body. We do not use medications and strive to eliminate your herniated disc in a natural way. You will notice an improvement after your initial visit. As your treatments continue, you begin to feel a dramatic increase in your pain relief and also a reduction in the chances that you will endure another herniated disc.
A herniated disc may happen suddenly if you are involved in an auto accident, a sports incident or if you lift a heavy object. You may also not notice any immediate pain, but instead may feel the odd sensations in your arms or legs. Please let our Charlotte chiropractor examine your discomfort so you receive the correct treatment and not cover up your symptoms with medications. Our health team knows the importance of beginning treatment quickly so you do not have to worry about future complications. Chiropractic care for herniated discs is safe for those of all ages, so if you or a family member are in pain, please reach out to us today at (704) 392-9999.
