Exploring Chiropractic Treatment For Bulging Disc

When discs in your spine begin to bulge out of place, you may experience debilitating symptoms, which may include shooting pain, burning discomfort or severe numbness. The pain may centralize around the bulging discs or shoot from your back all the way down your limbs. The symptoms develop as the disc and bony portions of your spine compress the soft tissues and nerves. Thankfully, treatment that removes the nerve pressure can eliminate the symptoms just as quickly as they develop.

Exploring Chiropractic Bulging Disc Treatments

Surgical spine repairs often have a high failure rate, so it is always wise to begin the treatment process with less invasive techniques. Chiropractors can evaluate your condition and develop a treatment plan designed to bring your spine back into alignment naturally.

The first stage of the treatment plan revolves around identifying and eliminating the cause. Chiropractors will consider your lifestyle, career, weight, muscle tone, medical conditions, prior injuries and lifting techniques to find the main cause of the bulging discs. Oftentimes, chiropractors identify a combination of factors leading to your spinal damage. You must eliminate the cause, if possible, to keep the discs from bulging out of place in the future.

From there, chiropractors will look at the overall condition of the affected discs to verify they have not yet herniated. If the outer portion of the bulging discs separates and allows fluid to leak out, practitioners consider the discs herniated. If the discs are bulging out of place, your chiropractor will come up with a treatment plan to reduce the bulge and resolve the pressure on the nerves. Physical therapy, massage, medical pain management,  spinal decompression or other treatments maybe prescribed and custom tailored to your condition.
