Visit the Chiropractor San Antonio Trusts for Bulging and Herniated Disc Relief
The discs between your vertebrae are natural shock absorbers. Filled with a gelatinous nucleus and covered with a fibrous outer membrane, they cushion vertebrae and protect spinal nerves. A disc injury, often called a slipped, herniated or bulging disc, causes excruciating pain, numbness and tingling in areas controlled by impacted nerves. For lasting, non-surgical relief from disc injury, schedule an appointment with your Pinnacle Wellness chiropractor in San Antonio today.
What is a Slipped Disc?
A slipped disc doesn't actually slip—it protrudes. Uneven pressure from misaligned vertebrae, either from long-term poor posture or a sudden injury, weakens the disc’s outer membrane, causing it to bulge or even herniate. Continued excess pressure then causes a protrusion of the gelatinous nucleus—this protrusion pinches sensitive spinal nerves. Without treatment, bulging, herniated and degenerative discs can cause debilitating pain, numbness, tingling and dysfunction in the form of sciatica, neck pain, numbness and tingling in the arms, etc.
Chiropractic Care Corrects Disc Protrusion for Lasting Pain Relief
Painkillers cannot fix a disc protrusion. And while some turn to surgery for bulging or herniated disc pain relief, many complications can arise. Chiropractic care, however, can safely and effectively alleviate underlying problems causing the nucleus to slip outside of the membrane. At Pinnacle Wellness, your chiropractor can help with:
- Chiropractic Treatment—Realigning your spine to its natural, healthy alignment removes pressure from discs, often providing instant relief. Regular chiropractic care also prevents further damage and helps damaged discs recover.
- Massage Therapy—Bulging and herniated disc pain can also cause muscle spasms, soreness and other soft tissue pains. Holistically realigning the spine and providing massage to rehabilitate the back’s soft tissues provides excellent, natural pain relief.
- Exercise & Ergonomics Coaching—Strong core muscles in the abs, back and sides can help you maintain correct posture to prevent uneven pressure on discs. Your San Antonio chiropractor can coach you on core strengthening exercises and proper form for daily activities.
