Herniated, Degnerative and Bulging Disc Relief in Chattanooga

If you're experiencing pain in your back or neck, a problem with one or a few spinal discs is the likely culprit. Your discs might be bulging, herniated or even degenerative. These problems can even extend to your arms and legs.

So what can you do about bulging, herniated or degenerative discs, Chattanooga residents? Fortunately, chiropractors specialize in the spine. Our local True Wellness Chiropractic chiropractors practice many techniques that successfully handle these types of disc problems. The first step is to come in for an evaluation. Then, you can decide if you'd like to work with us and we can set up a customized treatment plan just for you. Call one of our offices in Chattanooga or Cleveland if you're ready to let the pain go from your life.

 

What Are Bulging, Herniated and Degenerative Discs?

First, we need to discuss the discs themselves. Your spinal discs work to cushion your spinal vertebrae, which are the bones in your spine and neck, with a gelatinous substance inside an outer membrane. The gelatinous substance takes impact from daily activities away from your vertebrae and the surrounding nerves. They also help your spine move well.

When you have a problem with your spinal discs, it affects the vertebrae and the nerves around those discs, and that's where the real problem comes in. When pressure is put on the nerves, they send pain signals to your brain.

  • A bulging disc is just what its name implies: the disc is bulging. This can take up extra space and pinch nerves.
  • A herniated disc involves an opening in the outer membrane that allows some of the gelatinous substance to leave the disc. This interferes with the disc's cushioning ability and puts pressure on surrounding nerves.
  • A degenerative disc happens when the disc becomes smaller and less hydrated over time. This affects its ability to absorb shock for the vertebrae.

You might have one of these disc problems, or you can even get a combination of two or three! Discover the condition of your back by setting up an appointment today at one of our local offices.

 

Do I Need Surgery?

Fortunately, chiropractic care can often eliminate the need for painkillers and surgery. These temporary solutions generally do not fix the underlying problem, and they can add side effects to your pain. Many people end up needing multiple surgeries. But with chiropractic care, you can skip these ineffective "solutions". We go to the root of the problem -- the spine -- and we use specialized techniques to put it back into its normal and healthy state.

So what kinds of treatments might you expect? At True Wellness Chiropractic, we treat bulging, degenerative and herniated discs in Chattanooga in a few ways. Your customized treatment plan could include one or a combination of treatments like adjustments of the spine to align the vertebrae, spinal decompression therapy and progressive rehabilitation, which you can learn more about on our site.
