Your spine is composed of spinal bones and discs. The discs are the cartilage pads found in between the spinal bones and act as a cushion the bones of your spinal column. Between each of the vertebrae, they act as shock absorbers and are continually subject to the pull of gravity and the torque from daily movement.
Spinal Disc Pain and Chiropractic Care
Disc problems have a genetic component and can be worsened by the natural "wear and tear" of age and damage from various other sources (i.e. trauma). The role of the disc is greatly influenced by the spine 's orientation. A subluxation or structural imbalance can cause a disc to bulge, protrude, or herniate, which can then lead to nerve contact and cause pain.
When someone comes in with back pain, this popular back issue is often considered. To correct this issue, our goal is to realign the vertebrae and restore the spine to its natural range of motion. This practice is effective and can help to manage/eliminate this disorder, thus reducing the strain on the disc and spinal joints. We also incorporate physical therapy for the abdominal and back muscles as well as strengthening exercises.
Core stabilization is also important for the prevention of subsequent disk problems. We offer chiropractic care for herniated discs or Spinal Decompression. Dr. Raj has provided patients with an outstanding non-surgical approach to their problems. Call us today!
