When you suffer from a slipped disc, chiropractic care may serve as an excellent way to obtain greater comfort from your condition. In fact, this is a non-invasive and safe treatment option that can be effective in addressing such health issue. Find out more about this condition and what chiropractors can do for you.

Causes and Treatment

Slipped or herniated disc is a medical condition where the disc or soft cushion between individual vertebrae in the spine ruptures or splits. This arises from the natural process of degeneration of discs over time when these become brittle and dehydrated.

Manual adjustments or manipulation can do so much to address this health concern. Through chiropractic care, stiffness, tingling sensation or weakness in your back and neck can be resolved. Various procedures are done to help people who suffer from herniated or degenerative disk issues.

For instance, manual manipulation can prove to be effective for this condition. With this technique, chiropractors use their hands in flexing and manipulating spinal joints that are affected. Then, surrounding tissues and nerve that cause pain are also manipulated. This action promotes better circulation and range of motion while minimizing the amount of pain linked with disc issues. As you go about the treatment process, you will notice much improvement in your condition over time, and this can result to better health and general well-being.

In addition to conducting spinal manipulations and adjustments, a chiropractor may recommend a more suitable diet that will promote quicker and better recovery. For instance, your current nutrition will be assessed, so that your chiropractor can have a better understanding of how to improve your condition. Lifestyle and stress management are also enhanced, as these all contribute to your healing and recovery. Thus, not only your physical aspect is addressed, but every facet of your life is improved to attain balance and wellness.
