How to Know if You Have a Disc Herniation

Have you been feeling pain in your back, and it doesn't seem to go away? While there may be many potential causes for that, one major potential culprit is disc herniation. At Back On Track Chiropractic, our chiropractor provides the testing and treatment you need for herniated discs. We serve the residents of Birmingham, Hoover, Mountain Brook, Homewood, and Vestavia Hills, AL.

What Is Disc Herniation?

Disc herniation occurs when the inner gel-like material of a spinal disc bulges out. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the back and extremities. The condition can be caused by many things such as age, injury, or repetitive motions. Disc herniation is not a life-threatening condition, but it can be debilitating. The good news is that most cases can be treated without surgery.

Disc Herniation Symptoms - How To Know if you have a Disc Herniation

There are many disc herniation symptoms. If you are experiencing pain, numbness, and tingling around the spine, this may be a sign of a herniated disc. You may also experience muscle weakness, problems with bowel or bladder function, and spinal cord compression. If you have any of these symptoms, it is essential to see our chiropractor as soon as possible.

Chiropractic Care for Disc Herniation Treatment

A chiropractor can perform a comprehensive exam to determine if you have a disc herniation. If it's detected, the doctor will determine the best treatment for you through spinal adjustments, exercises, and other therapies. Many people with disc herniation experience relief of their symptoms with chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care for disc herniation has many benefits. One, surgery is not required to treat most cases of this condition. Two, chiropractic care can improve nervous system function by removing nerve interference caused by the herniated disc. And three, performing therapeutic exercises with a professional can help you recover your range of motion and strength more quickly.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Was traveling through from Texas and these wonderful people worked me in to their schedule. I have been to many chiropractors and can tell you the good Dr. knew what he was doing here! He adjusted me at a price that was only a percentage of what I would have been willing to pay for relief and I left with my neck turning again. The locals are lucky to have y'all!!!
    Thanks"
