Disc Problems in Palm Beach Gardens

disc chartDisc problems refer to any medical issues that affect the intervertebral discs of the spinal column. These discs provide cushioning between each vertebra, helping aid movement and protect sensitive nerve structures. Disc problems can range from mild pain and discomfort to severe cases that restrict mobility and cause longer-term disability. At Preferred Chiropractic, our doctor is ready to assist you with all your chiropractic care needs.

Types of Disc Issues

When your discs are healthy, you have the flexibility to turn and bend easily. Improper lifting, falls, and auto accidents can cause the core to shift, and the following disc issues arise:

Herniation – a condition where there is a TEAR in the disc. Generally, the symptoms are the same as a bulge, but these are more serious and many of our daily activities must be immediately restricted.

Bulge – a condition of the spine where one or more discs between the vertebrae bulge outward, pushing against nerves or other structures in the spine. Pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, and other issues can result, depending on which nerve is affected.

Prolapse – a condition that is out of the scope of practice for a Chiropractor. These conditions; which are much more rare typically require surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

This method requires treatment over 12 consecutive days and takes about 20 to 30 minutes each day.

Is SOT blocking painful?

No, not at all. This method is safe, and there’s no force or cracking involved.

Aren’t disc problems simply because of the normal aging process?

No. However, many such problems are due to years of neglect. Many individuals with spinal problems won’t experience symptoms until they’re in an advanced stage of degeneration. The good news is that many seniors still enjoy optimal spinal health and function because they’ve maintained their spine throughout their lives.
