What is Disc Herniation?

If diagnosed with a herniated disc, this is an injury to a cushion located in between the vertebrae in the spine. This particular condition means the contents of the disc began to seep into the spinal column through a tear. However, this tear isn't usually the source of the pain. The contents seeping out of the disc is what is irritating the nearby nerves and causing the pain. The irritation may cause pain or weakness in the legs or arms.

A herniated disc in the lumbar region, which is the abdominal region of your spine, may apply pressure to the sciatic nerve. This leads to numbness, pain, and weakness that may radiate down your legs and extend to your toes.

Causes of Disc Herniation

Disc herniation occurs from repeat wear and tear to the discs, which weaken their integrity. If you play sports, you may injure a disc from repeatedly stressing the disc or moving with a sudden twisting motion. Once the discs become compromised, people with the condition are more at risk of a tear. Heavy strain or excess pressure may put too much stress on the already-fragile disc.

Treatment of a Herniated Disc

The first step to disc herniation treatment in Murfreesboro consists of our local chiropractor taking a detailed medical history. Our chiropractor will ask questions regarding your employment and current physical activity level, so we understand what contributed to your herniated disc. Our chiropractor will recommend a combination of the following treatments.

Spinal adjustment - Also known as a chiropractic alignment, is comprised of our specialist realigning the spine manually. Realigning the spine will take pressure off of the injured disc in an effort to reduce pain and discomfort.

Traction - Also known as spinal decompression therapy takes the pressure off the discs in the spine. Our Murfreesboro chiropractor will situate you on a table. A motorized or manual device will gently stretch your spine in order to take pressure off the herniated disc.

Lifestyle changes – This can help with the healing process. Our chiropractor may recommend weight loss to put less stress on the discs in the back.

Improving posture - Our chiropractor may guide you through exercises to assist with correcting your posture and allow you to move more effectively.

Heat or cold therapy - For nerve pain relief.
