CHIROPRACTOR IN Peoria EXPLAINS HERNIATED DISCS

chiropractic clinic discusses herniated discs

Chance are you probably have heard one of a number of different terms to describe injuries related to discs in the spine. However, the worst one by far to experience is a herniated disc. Luckily, you have a chiropractor in Peoria who has the experience necessary to provide effective care for disc injuries.

The discs in your back are bony structures with jelly-like filled centers that fit in between your vertebrae to provide support, flexibility, and shock absorption. Unfortunately, when placed in an awkward position or in cases of extreme trauma, a disc can rupture and spill it’s liquid on the surrounding area.

When this occurs, the fluid inside of the disc can irritate the nerves that surround it. In the most severe cases this fluid can even interfere with the nerves that extend out of from your spine, resulting in debilitating pain.

Your chiropractic team in Peoria can help by first assessing the extent of the damage and working to put together an effective rehabilitation plan. Afterwards, your chiropractor will perform a variety of exams and therapy to ensure you are progressing satisfactorily.

A disc that becomes herniated should be treated with care because any mistake can lead to long-lasting issues. Your chiropractor will not hesitate to refer you to a surgeon if necessary, however conservative care should always be tried first when dealing with injuries of this magnitude.


How Can Chiropractic in Peoria Treat Herniated Discs?

It is a common misconception that a chiropractor will work to ‘pop’ your disc back into position, that would be careless and dangerous. Another misconception is that your herniated disc can be repaired overnight. The fact is that treating a herniated disc takes time and expert care.
