Spinal Disc Injuries

Someone with a spinal disc injury usually has had previous episodes of neck or lower back pain. However, this injury can be sudden, causing local seizing muscle spasms and can lead to accompanying radiating pain. This pain can occur in the neck or back and may accompany pain down the arm or leg.

What is a Herniated Disc

Abnormal intervertebral discs can be classified as dehydrated, bulged (bulging) or herniated (herniation). Herniated discs are commonly broken down into degrees of severity and are classified as:

  • Protruded (protrusion)
  • Extruded (extrusion)
  • Sequestered (sequestration)
  • In addition, aged and degenerated discs can be considered desiccated, meaning they have hardened and dried up. 

How Our Doctors Can Help You

Our treatments for disc conditions vary according to the degree of the injury.

  • Chiropractic manipulation (adjustments) of the region to restore segmental motion, circulation of nutrients via blood flow, and to improve healing of the disc 
  • Evidence suggests chiropractic manipulation (adjustments) combined with therapeutic exercise can help manage disc conditions
  • Our doctors may utilize the Leander Flexion Distraction Table, which aids in relief of spinal disc conditions.  Flexion-Distraction is designed to separate the joint surfaces and elongate the surrounding soft tissues
  • We also utilize physical modalities such as Interferential Current, Ultrasound Therapy, and specific spinal healing exercises (rehabilitation).
  • Additionally, our doctors can prescribe lumbar orthosis (back braces), TEN’s units, topical lotions and nutritional supplements.
