Herniated Disc Relief: FAQ

Herniated discs cause pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling sensations in the neck and back. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, you may have a herniated disc, and it is time to see a chiropractor. If you live in or around Birmingham, Hoover, Mountain Brook, Homewood, or Vestavia Hills, contact Dr. Duca at Back on Track Chiropractic for herniated disc relief. Let’s look at a few of the questions we run into regarding herniated discs.

What is a Herniated Disc?

The spine is supported by spinal discs, made up of a cushiony gel-like material enclosed in an outer casing. The spinal discs cushion between spinal bones, acting as shock absorbers. When a disc becomes herniated, the liquid inside leaks out through the ruptured outer layer, the ruptured disc puts pressure on the spinal nerve roots, which can be very painful.

Common causes of a herniated disc include car accidents, sports injuries/collisions, and other traumatic accidents causing injury to the spinal discs. Herniated disc symptoms include numbness in the back, a tingling sensation, and muscle weakness. Some people also suffer from muscle spasms associated with herniation.

How Can a Chiropractor Help with a Herniated Disc?

Chiropractors provide a non-invasive alternative to traditional medicine. For example, seeing a chiropractor for a herniated disc involves spinal decompression and hands-on adjustments. The chiropractor relieves the patient of pain by restoring the spinal alignment and reducing inflammation. Chiropractic care provides the body a chance to heal independently without the need for surgery or pain medications.

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"
