Bulging or Herniated Discs
Schedule a consultation with our Medical staff to correctly diagnosis and formulate a proper treatment protocol that heals the disc and gets you back on your feet. One of the most effective treatments is Spinal Decompression. This, combined with a Rehabilitation program, cold laser therapy and chiropractic adjustments could effectively control the pain and begin the healing process for the disc.
Our treatment of Herniated or a Bulging Disc, begin with a complete wellness exam with diagnostic X-rays. Once diagnosed, our proven treatment options may also include:
- Spinal Decompression
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Trigger Point Therapy
- PRP Injections
- Rehabilitation Therapy
Herniated discs are a medical condition affecting the spine due to trauma, lifting injuries, or idiopathic, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion to bulge out beyond the damaged outer rings. Tears are almost always postero-lateral in nature owing to the presence of the posterior longitudinal ligament in the spinal canal.
This tear in the disc ring may result in the release of inflammatory chemical mediators which may directly cause severe pain, even in the absence of nerve root compression. Disc herniations are normally a further development of a previously existing disc “protrusion”, a condition in which the outermost layers of the annulus fibrosus are still intact, but can bulge when the disc is under pressure. In contrast to a herniation, none of the nucleus pulposus escapes beyond the outer layers.
