What Are Bulging, Herniated and Degenerative Discs?
First, we need to discuss the discs themselves. Your spinal discs work
to cushion your spinal vertebrae, which are the bones in your spine and
neck, with a gelatinous substance inside an outer membrane. The gelatinous
substance takes impact from daily activities away from your vertebrae
and the surrounding nerves. They also help your spine move well.
When you have a problem with your spinal discs, it affects the vertebrae
and the nerves around those discs, and that's where the real problem
comes in. When pressure is put on the nerves, they send pain signals to
- A bulging disc is just what its name implies: the disc is bulging. This
can take up extra space and pinch nerves.
- A herniated disc involves an opening in the outer membrane that allows
some of the gelatinous substance to leave the disc. This interferes with
the disc's cushioning ability and puts pressure on surrounding nerves.
- A degenerative disc happens when the disc becomes smaller and less hydrated
over time. This affects its ability to absorb shock for the vertebrae.
You might have one of these disc problems, or you can even get a combination
of two or three! Discover the condition of your back by setting up an
appointment today at one of our local offices.
Do I Need Surgery?
Fortunately, chiropractic care can often eliminate the need for painkillers
and surgery. These temporary solutions generally do not fix the underlying
problem, and they can add side effects to your pain. Many people end up
needing multiple surgeries. But with chiropractic care, you can skip these
ineffective "solutions". We go to the root of the problem --
the spine -- and we use specialized techniques to put it back into its
normal and healthy state.
So what kinds of treatments might you expect? At True Wellness Chiropractic,
we treat bulging, degenerative and herniated discs in Chattanooga in a
few ways. Your customized treatment plan could include one or a combination
of treatments like adjustments of the spine to align the vertebrae, spinal
decompression therapy and progressive rehabilitation, which you can learn
more about on our site.
