Damage to a spinal disc can create local inflammation or put pressure on surrounding nerves which can cause the pain in the neck or back region, or even produce radiating pain to an arm or leg. If your chiropractor determines that the pain is the result of a disc issue, Spinal Decompression is an extremely effective treatment for injured discs and may be the ideal solution to help alleviate or eliminate your pain.
When a disc herniates, the outer fibrous rings break down or tear, allowing the gel-like center of the disc to protrude out beyond its designed limits. This is typically a very painful condition. Injured disc symptoms may include lower back pain, sharp buttock pain, a burning sensation or pain in the thighs/legs, numbness in legs or feet, hip pain, neck pain and radiating pain into the arms.
Pain may be limited to the direct area of the disc (like low back or neck), or often it may affect a nearby nerve that radiates pain into an arm or leg.
Bulging, herniating, extruding, torn, ruptured, and prolapsed are all varying designations of a damaged disc, and are all conditions that may benefit from our spinal decompression therapy.
Sciatica is caused by the compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often due to the degeneration of an intervertebral disc. Sciatic pain tends to affect the back, hip, and outer side of the leg and radiates down the back of the thigh and leg and possibly into the foot.
Spinal Decompression can relieve pressure on the affected discs, alleviating the uncomfortable symptoms of sciatica.
Pain in one's neck, back, arm or leg may be the result of various issues. A thorough examination and evaluation by a chiropractor are often needed to uncover the source of the problem.
Damage to a spinal disc can create local inflammation or put pressure on surrounding nerves which likely causes the pain in the affected neck or back region, or even produce radiating pain to an arm or leg.
If your chiropractor determines that the pain is a result of disc issues, then Spinal Decompression could be the best and most appropriate therapy for you.
Spinal Stenosis is an abnormal narrowing (stenosis) of the spinal canal that may occur in any of the regions of the spine. This narrowing causes a restriction to the spinal canal or spinal cord or nerves, resulting in a neurological deficit.
Spinal stenosis symptoms can include one or more of the following:
- Pain running down leg or arm
- Pain in the neck or back
- Burning sensation in legs or arms
- Numbness or cramping in the thighs or feet
- Abnormal bladder and/or bowel functions
- Loss of sexual function
Damage to a spinal disc can create local inflammation or swell into the spinal canal and put pressure on the spinal cord or nerve root. Pressure to this nerve tissue likely causes the pain in the affected regions.
If your chiropractor determines that the pain is discogenic, that is, resulting from a problem with the disc, then Spinal Decompression therapy may very well be the best and most appropriate approach to eliminating your pain and correcting the problem.
The medical term for numbness and tingling is paresthesia. The most common reason for lingering paresthesia is a problem with nerve function, either because the nerve itself is injured, or something is pressing on the nerve.
A herniated disc or a pinched nerve in your back are common causes because they put extra pressure on the nerves in your back that run parallel to your spine, resulting in pain as well as paresthesia.
Spinal Decompression is an extremely effective treatment for injured discs and can help alleviate your pain and restore healthy movement.
