Let Us Help With Your Herniated Disc

Chiropractic care can provide you with long-term back pain relief
Even though spinal discs may seem small they certainly don’t feel small when they are causing pain. Everything from lifting heavy objects to a bad fall can lead to a herniated disc. If you notice pain that radiates to your arms and legs, pain that occurs with activity, or numbness or tingling on one side of the body, these could be signs of a herniated disc. Dr. Alan Barthen can help.
Before we can treat the problem, we need to first evaluate your spine as a whole and determine which areas of the spine are impacted by herniated discs. When back pain and stiffness are so severe that they're impacting your daily routine and quality of life then you may have considered turning to back surgery.
Before getting surgery for your herniated disc, you should talk with our Cary, IL, chiropractor about spinal adjustments and other nonsurgical options that could provide you with the relief you’re looking for.
How Chiropractor Care Helps
The goals of chiropractic care are to reduce pain and other problems while improving mobility and healing the parts of the spine that are damaged or injured through non-invasive and non-surgical chiropractic techniques. Each treatment plan that we create is tailor-made to fit you and your needs. We will look at everything from your professional and medical history to your activity level to decide which treatments will help you most.
One of the most common ways to alleviate herniated discs is through regular spinal adjustments. When the spine is out of alignment this can exacerbate herniated discs. By realigning the spine, we can reduce inflammation and irritation in and around the discs.
We also offer Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, which provides decompression of the spine and discs. This takes the pressure off of the herniated disc and creates a vacuum-like pressure to promote healing by increasing blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the disc. This negative pressure also pulls the herniation back into place and off of the spinal cord and nerves.
Don’t let a herniated or bulging disc affect your mobility and quality of life. Our chiropractic team at Cary Disc Center can help get your pain under control through nonsurgical and noninvasive treatment options. To schedule an evaluation, call us at (847) 639-0010.
