Spinal health plays a major role in our overall well-being. Many conditions impact the spine, and one of the most common is known as a herniated disc. The spinal discs contain a soft center that is covered by a tougher exterior. When the soft internal tissues are forcibly pushed outward, they can press on nearby nerves and muscles, creating pain and numbness. But since these symptoms can indicate other health problems, it’s not always easy to tell if your symptoms indicate a herniated disc.
Motus Integrative Health uses chiropractic techniques to relieve pain and symptoms associated with a herniated disc. If you have the following signs, be sure to call our team right away for a wellness evaluation.
Back pain of all kinds can impact your everyday life. While minor aches are often attributed to strains that go away over the course of days to weeks, some people have chronic back issues that generate long-term pain and stiffness. Herniated discs are among the most common, and they present several hallmark symptoms you should be aware of. Typically, a herniated disc occurs in the lower back, although it can affect the neck, too, and they usually only affect one side.
Pay attention to these symptoms:
Symptoms can come on quickly and linger for a long time. A herniated disc can worsen when you are sitting, bending or lifting a heavy object. Nerve pain is indicated by pain or numbness in the leg.
In some cases, a herniated disc may cause no symptoms at all, and you won’t know until you’ve had imaging taken of your spine. If you do have symptoms, you will want to talk to a doctor or healthcare specialist about your condition so it can be treated.
A herniated disc can impact your everyday life, so treatment is vital to your well-being. Motus Integrative Health treats herniated discs holistically. Contact our knowledgeable chiropractors today to discuss your symptoms. We are excited to help you along the healing journey.
