Disc problems

Many people assume that any acute lower back pain must be due to a “slipped disc”. However, discs cannot actually slip. Instead, any pain you are experiencing may be a result from a disk bulging, tearing, rupturing, or degenerating.

A spinal disc is like a cushion between the front parts of the vertebrae and just like a cushion they can change shape, tear or bulge, which can then lead discs pressing onto the nerves. This can cause not only back pain but also:

  • Severe leg pain
  • Pins and needles
  • Numbness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Reflex changes

Chiropractic can often make specific adjustments to the spine and rehabilitation exercises that can help to lower inflammation. These techniques, as well as others, aim to reduce pressure on nerves and, as a result, reducing the levels of pain and decreasing any muscle spasms.
