Herniated Disc Treatment at Joga Chiropractic Center

Herniated disc, sometimes called a slipped disc, can be extremely painful and debilitating. This condition can cause back pain and loss of flexibility and mobility. Fortunately, your chiropractor in West Los Angeles can assist you with healing treatments that will get you out of pain and on the road to healing.

Man with a hurt back needs chiropractic care in Los Angeles.

A herniated disc refers to the fact that a disc has become compromised. The outer rigid portion has become ruptured, causing the soft inner cushioning to leak out. The herniated portion can then press against the nerves of the spinal cord and cause pain and discomfort.

Symptoms and Causes of A Herniated Disc

The symptoms of a herniated disc often include:

  • Radiating pain in the back
  • Numbness or tingling, usually on just one side of the body
  • Extremity (limb) pain
  • Burning sensation
  • Increase in pain while sitting or standing
  • Pain that increases with movement
  • Pain that becomes worse in the evenings
  • Difficulty walking without pain
  • Muscle weakness

Some of the common causes of a slipped disc include:

  • Sports injury
  • Auto accident
  • Work injury
  • Improper form
  • Slip and fall

The main effects and complications from a herniated disc include back pain and potential loss of feeling in the extremities due to nerve constriction. The chronic pain of a herniated disc compels many to seek relief at our chiropractic offices. In extreme cases, a herniated disc can result in permanent nerve damage. This can severely restrict mobility and quality of life.

Ways To Manage Herniated Discs

Chiropractic care for herniated discs can make a dramatic difference in reducing pain and assisting in the healing process. Chiropractic manipulation and adjustment can ensure the spine and all its components are in proper alignment. The disc is better able to heal and restore itself, preventing the development of further complications down the road.
