HERNIATED OR BULGING DISCS

Giving your spine a cushiony embrace, spinal discs are like built-in shock absorbers that keep you agile and comfortable. These discs have an outer layer as tough as cartilage to protect the squishier interior – similar to jelly hidden in doughnuts! Be careful though – too much pressure on these versatile gems can cause them to bulge or herniate – just like pushing down on a delicious treat.

HOW DOES A HERNIATED DISC OCCUR?

Our spinal discs are our body’s protectors, but they can be vulnerable to unexpected movements. Bending the wrong way when picking something up from the floor puts them at risk of a disc herniation: liquid inside one of these discs pushes through its external fibers and presses against nearby nerves which leads to swelling as there is not enough space in our spine for both nerves and increased pressure! The combination of constriction by tight spaces plus amplified discomfort makes this condition unpleasant – so it pays off to take extra care with your posture.

WHAT CAUSES THE SYMPTOMS OF A HERNIATED DISC?

A herniated disc is a painful condition caused by the unnatural movement of gelatinous discs between your vertebrae, pressing on and pinching nerves. This may cause shooting pains or tingling in the arms and legs as well as numbness in hands or feet – so if you feel any kind of strange discomfort coming from your spine, it should be checked out.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF A HERNIATED DISC?

When the spinal cord or spinal nerves become compressed, they don’t work properly. This means that abnormal signals may get passed from the compressed nerves, or signals may not get passed at all. Common symptoms of a herniated disc include:

Electric, Stabbing, Shooting or Burning Pain, Tingling & Numbness and Muscle Weakness

HOW DOES SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY HELP A HERNIATED DISC?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates a vacuum inside the discs that helps to reposition bulging discs and draw extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to healing.

Why Get Spinal Decompression Treatment?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is not only effective and affordable but is also non-invasive and safe.

For those suffering from chronic back pain, spinal decompression treatments are a promising option! Over the span of six weeks, patients reported an average 50% reduction in their pain scores. By the end of treatment, 88.9% were experiencing significant relief – proving that this therapy is truly transformative for many individuals with persistent aches and pains.
