Without intervertebral discs, you couldn’t bend, twist or turn your back. Your discs absorb shocks between vertebrae while keeping them connected and allowing the nerves to pass from the spinal cord to the rest of your body. A protruding or bulging disc injury can cause back pain, sciatica and other pains. Fortunately, chiropractic care provides great bulging disc pain relief treatment. Schedule an appointment today with the chiropractor San Antonio trusts for natural, effective bulging disc relief.
Imagine a doughnut-shaped balloon with a tough, fibrous outer covering encasing a gelatinous filling (nucleus). The outer covering also acts as a ligament holding adjacent vertebrae in place while providing spinal flexibility. The nucleus cushions vertebrae and nerves. Uneven wear from poor posture, repetitive motion, or sudden injury causes small tears in the covering, allowing nucleus material to push outward—like when you squeeze a balloon just enough to make it bulge without popping. This protruding nucleus bulge pinches nerves, causing back pain, leg pain, sciatica, numbness, tingling and other symptoms depending on the location of the disc injury. Without treatment, the disc covering cracks open, with the nucleus protruding even more (a herniated disc).
Regular chiropractic care and supportive therapies with your Pinnacle Wellness chiropractors in San Antonio provide excellent treatment for, and prevention of bulging disc pain and injury:
