Most people don’t give much thought to the discs in their spine until they start causing pain—and then they might be all you’re able to think about. Discs act as a cushion between each of the vertebrae in your spine. When one or more of these discs start to degenerate or is injured, the spine can no longer function properly. Common symptoms of disc issues include:
As we move throughout the day, this movement keeps the spine and discs healthy. If movement is either lost or limited for an extended amount of time, it places an increased amount of pressure on the discs, which makes them spill out from between the vertebrae. This is known as disc bulge.
When disc bulge is left untreated, it can progress into a herniated disc. Treatment options are limited once disc issues get to this stage, but timely chiropractic care can help you avoid surgery. At Palmercare, we treat compromised discs with adjustments, traction, and a series of at-home stretches and exercises to help restore your spine to proper alignment and function.
