Scottsdale Disc Herniation Relief
Have you ever herniated, ruptured, or slipped a disc? In most cases, people don’t even realize that they have—they experience pain, a pulling sensation, and a loss of flexibility, but don’t realize that this could be the result of a significant imbalance that now exists in the spine.
How Disc Herniation Affects Your Life
A disc herniates, ruptures, or slips when the soft, cushy material between the spinal joints slips out of its normal place and pushes out of the spinal cavity. This causes the disc to press against nearby nerves, causing inflammation and often, sharp pain.
Disc herniation can make life difficult by limiting the types of activities an individual is able to conduct in their daily life. Any sort of movement can become painful, causing what were once normal activities to become unpleasant.
Disc herniation is most often the result of an injury. Car accidents, falls, and lifting objects that are too heavy (or with improper form) can all lead to a slipped, herniated, and ruptured disc.
Our Disc Herniation Treatment in Scottsdale
Chiropractic care is one of the most effective forms of treatment for disc herniation. An expert chiropractor can help massage and manually shift a disc back toward ideal alignment, as well as correct the posture and spinal curve if it is compounding or worsening the slippage.
At Functional Wellness Center of Scottsdale, Arizona, our expert chiropractors are trained in Chiropractic BioPhysics®, a form of care that uses gravity and physics to help shift the spine and relieve tension and pain. Dr. Sarah Little and Dr. Andrew Kellog are prepared to create a customized treatment plan that takes into account any spinal injury and discomfort and treats it at the root cause.
