Herniated discs occur when a disc cushioning the vertebrae in the spine becomes damaged. This type of degenerative disc disease puts strain on nearby nerves and the spinal cord, causing pain.
Fortunately, non-invasive methods through chiropractic treatment and our regenerative medicine protocol can relieve the symptoms of this disease.
Symptoms of a Herniated Disc
Most herniated disks occur in the lower back, but they can also occur in the neck. Signs and symptoms depend on where the disk is situated and whether the disk is pressing on a nerve. Herniated disks usually affect one side of the body.
- Arm or leg pain.
- Numbness or tingling.
Common Causes of a Herniated Disc
Disk herniation is most often the result of gradual, aging-related wear and tear called disk degeneration. As people age, the disks become less flexible and more prone to tearing or rupturing with even a minor strain or twist.
Most people can’t pinpoint the cause of their herniated disk. Sometimes, using the back muscles instead of the leg and thigh muscles to lift heavy objects can lead to a herniated disk, as can twisting and turning while lifting. Rarely, a traumatic event such as a fall or a blow to the back is the cause.
How We Help
Manual and gentle adjustments are commonly used to realign the vertebrae in your spine or joints that are out of place. This can happen for many reasons such as trauma, car accidents, slip and falls, or just regular daily activities.
We are proud to be the only clinic in Florida to have the Anti-Gravity Decompression Chair. While in an anti-gravity position, we can reduce the pressure on your disc and nerves and increase your mobility.
Physical therapists are movement experts. They help people improve or restore mobility and reduce their pain. Through hands-on care and patient education, our Physical Therapist will improve the quality of your life.
benefits of chiropractic
Patients can experience immediate and long-term relief from pain and discomfort with chiropractic care and by making small lifestyle changes.
An immediate decrease in pain through adjustment, spinal decompression, and physical therapy helps reduce inflammation and tension so the body has an opportunity to heal.
Enhance Quality of Life
Sudden, sporadic, or chronic back pain can keep us from living our best lives. The right treatment can get you back to your natural, healthy state.
Trigger Point Injection
Trigger point injections involve the precise insertion of medication into muscle knots, commonly found in areas like the neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and lower back, to alleviate pain, relax muscles, and improve mobility.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP harnesses healing platelets and growth factors from a patient's blood. When injected into specific areas, PRP stimulates tissue repair, reduces inflammation, and accelerates natural healing processes.
A regenerative medicine treatment protocol combining PRP and MSCs to enhance the potential for tissue healing, reducing inflammation, and promoting the regeneration of damaged and injured tissue.
Physical Therapy Treatment
Cold Laser Therapy
Low-intensity laser therapyaiding in the repair of annular disc tears.
Reduces muscle spasms and improves range of motion.
