A Herniated Disc is where the gel-like inner substance of the disc breaks through the rubbery outer structure of the intervertebral disc. Most herniated discs occur in the lumbar region of the spine because that part carries most of your weight. As we age, we are more at risk for herniated discs because each year, the elasticity and water content of the disc reduces. Herniated discs can also occur from incorrect lifting or a twisting movement. Bulging Discs are more susceptible to becoming herniated if not treated.
A herniated disc can cause a wide-variety of pain throughout the body. While many traditional medical doctors will jump quickly to evasive surgical procedures, at HealthSource, we look for non-evasive treatments like chiropractic care and spinal decompression therapy before ever recommending surgical alternatives.
