Slipped Discs: Understanding and Managing with Chiropractic Care
What are Slipped Discs?
Slipped discs can cause significant discomfort and debilitation. These discs act as cushions in your spine, absorbing shocks and facilitating movement.
They're sensitive structures housing numerous nerves that help control motion, posture, and protect your spinal cord and nerve roots.
Causes and Symptoms of Slipped Discs
Poor posture, degenerative changes, or trauma can injure these discs, causing them to tear. This injury can lead to severe pain, disability, numbness, tingling, and discomfort radiating to your legs or arms.
The Impact of Slipped Discs
The injured disc can bulge and compress the nerves as they leave the spinal column, causing severe pain along the nerve's course. If the nerve supplies an organ, the organ may also be adversely affected.
Why Surgery Should be a Last Resort
While the pain from disc problems can be intense, leading many to consider surgery, these procedures typically don't address the root cause of the issue.
Surgery could lead to further interventions and even spinal fusion surgery, which has a mixed long-term prognosis.
