Disc Herniation

Disc Herniation

Chiropractic Clinic in Decatur, GA

Disc herniation, a condition that's often extremely painful, can occur in the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine. Also called a slipped disc, or a ruptured disc, disc herniation is actually the result of some of the soft, jelly-like center of a spinal disc pushing out through a fissure in the exterior of the disc. There are those who do not suffer any ill effects from disk herniation, but many people are deeply affected, experiencing intense pain, numbness or tingling, sciatica, or muscle weakness.

A herniated disc often results from age related disc degeneration, progressing gradually, but it can also have other causes. Sometimes, improper lifting or the trauma of a fall or blow to the back can cause a herniated disk, but it can also result from a physically demanding job. A patient's risk of disc herniation increases if he or she is overweight or middle aged.

Decatur Pain and Rehab uses a variety of therapies to treat degenerative disc disease and herniated discs. After a thorough examination and diagnostic assessment, patients are provided with a customized treatment plan, to address their medical concerns. Holistic therapies, such as chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy, are then utilized to promote optimal wellness.
