Does your body feel like a car with bad shocks? Do you feel like one more jolt will make you fall apart? Chances are your body’s “shock absorbers” may not be functioning properly! Chiropractic can help disc problems without the risks of pain-killing drugs or surgery.

You may not realize it, but you could be going about your daily life with a disc herniation! Unfortunately, your disc problem could eventually catch up with you. That’s why it’s important to take steps now to combat disc injury and degeneration. If your spine has been well-maintained, you can move, bend and twist freely.

Each vertebra is separated and cushioned by healthy, pliable discs, enabling you to absorb the bumps you encounter every day. But if your discs are unhealthy, you may be experiencing pain because of pressure on the nerves within your discs and in surrounding areas. Untreated spinal misalignments (subluxations), sudden movements, or repetitive wear and tear can cause excessive pressure on your discs. If the pressure continues, the outer layer of your discs can stretch or eventually tear. Symptoms such as tingling, numbness or weakness are often caused by nerve compression. And that could be a warning signal for trouble ahead if you don’t seek help now!

If you’re in pain and wondering whether chiropractic is right for you, let me assure you that Dr. Miller has helped many sufferers of disc problems. That’s because spinal adjustments have been proven safe and effective in treating a variety of disc problems. Scientific studies showed that chiropractic offered up to 80% relief from symptoms related to herniated discs. Chiropractic patients often report full recovery from disc problems…without drugs or surgery. How did you damage your disc when you “were only doing laundry” or “just reaching into the back seat of the car?” When it comes to the health of your discs what you just did isn’t nearly as important as what you’ve been doing! Discs can become weakened by a lack of exercise, improper lifting, bad posture, or a poorly healed injury. Contact us today to find out how we can help you feel great again!

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How does chiropractic help disc problems?
    The purpose of chiropractic care is to locate and correct areas of the spine interfering with the proper nervous system control of your body. Because the intervertebral discs are so close to the spinal cord and nerve roots, disc involvement is quite common in chiropractic cases. Chiropractic adjustments help restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones, reducing nervous system involvement. If caught before permanent damage, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape by restoring proper motion and position of affected spinal joints.
  • Aren’t disc problems simply the normal aging process?
    No. However, many disc problems are the result of years of neglect. Many spinal problems are nonsymptomatic until the advanced stages of degeneration. There are many cases of elderly patients who have maintained their spine throughout their lives who enjoy excellent spinal health and function.
  • I didn’t do anything so how can a disc be involved?
    This is a common refrain. Because our bodies are unusually adaptive, we can often accommodate a variety of stresses for years. Finally, like the “straw that broke the camel’s back,” we turn or bend funny and suddenly our spine succumbs to the accumulation of stress.
