Houston, TX Herniated Discs
Anyone who has experiences a herniated disc knows it is a painful condition. According to the Mayoclinic website in the article, “Herniated Disc: Definition,” the herniated disc occurs when the soft layer pads found inside the disc push through the hard outer layer to the spinal canal. When this happens, the person is left with pain in the back, as well as numbness and weakness in the arm or leg.
In more severe cases, surgery may be required, although most herniated disc will heal with regular chiropractic treatment. According to the article, “Severe Pain from a Herniated Disc: What are Your Treatment Options?” accessed from the Wellsphere website, chiropractic care for a herniated disc is very important because the chiropractor can determine whether there is a misalignment in the spine. If there is, the chiropractor can then utilize mobilization techniques and manipulation of the spine to help correct the misalignment.
