Have You Injured a Disc?

Have you been told that you have a slipped disc or have a disc injury? They can vary from slight to severe, but most require the attention of a trained chiropractor. Our chiropractic care team at New Leaf Chiropractic Wellness Center can help you understand your condition and help to develop the best treatment option for you.

The little pads that lie between your vertebrae are called the inter-vertebral discs; each of which has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. Your discs both join and separate your vertebrae. These discs serve as a cushions or shock absorbers, so that the bones don’t make contact with each other as you move. Without discs we would literally be unable to move our upper torso.


Disc Injury in Lutz

If you are diagnosed with a protruding disc it means that the gel is pushed out or bulging, and is asymmetrical in different places. This may result in pinching and irritation of the nerve roots at that point.

A herniated disc happens when the disc material ruptures to the point that the gel pushes outward. This can also cause pain and numbness due to the irritation of the nerves, and can be very serious in some cases.

A disc extrusion is the worst type of disc injury. What it means is that the gel balloons extensively into the area outside the vertebrae or breaks off from the disc. This tends to result in considerable back pain and limitation of range of motion.

If you’re suffering from a disc injury in call us today. We are here to help.

"I carry my stress in my upper back and was having a particularly painful Monday one week. Dr. Pease went over and above to diagnose the problem and to apply 3 different techniques to be sure that my pain was alleviated. I go to New Leaf Chiropractic regularly for preventive adjustments and am very happy with the results, but this week was particularly relieving. I am grateful for his attention to detail and would recommend him highly."
