What Is a Herniated Disc, and What Causes Them?

In between your spinal bones are discs, which are filled with a jelly-like substance that acts as a cushion. A herniated disc is one that has developed a tear in the outer casing, which allows the filling to emerge from the disc.

The reason that some people notice no symptoms is because the inner filling hasn’t compressed or impacted anything. However, in many cases, it spills onto a nerve. This leads to various symptoms, including sharp shooting pains, burning sensations, weakness, tingling, and numbness.

Tears typically develop because something has put too much pressure on the disc, such as a misalignment. However, it can also occur suddenly, such as in the event of an auto accident or sports injury.

Chiropractic Treatment for Herniated Discs

Effective relief from herniated discs and the related symptoms begins with relieving the pressure on the discs. Spinal adjustments and manipulation do this by restoring alignment to the spine.

It’s also important to address the soft tissues, as they are often impacted by or cause issues with the discs. Therapeutic massage and cold laser therapy help relieve tension, restore blood flow, improve range of motion, relieve nerve compression, and stimulate healing of damaged tissues. Acupuncture can prove effective by stimulating the nerves and blocking pain signals to the brain.

Physical therapy is another technique used in the treatment of herniated discs. It helps restore range of motion, stretch tense areas, and strengthen the core to provide better support for the spinal column.
