How a Chiropractor Can Help Provide Herniated Disc Treatment

Herniated Disc Center Point AL

Lower back pain can be caused by herniated discs. Here at Gremmels Chiropractic Center Inc., our Center Point chiropractors can provide treatment for a slipped disc (also known as ruptured disc) that will help them retract and provide you with pain relief.


Symptoms of a Herniated Disc
Herniated discs occur when a portion of the inner disc slips past the outer layer. This can put pressure on the nerve roots that exit from the base of each vertebra, causing pain and stiffness. In severe cases, a herniated disc can even cause pain in the buttocks and legs.

  • Back and/or Leg Pain
  • Loss of Range of Motion
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Numbness or Tingling in the Arms or Legs

Treatment with Our Center Point Chiropractors
Our chiropractors in Center Point AL offer several treatments to help reduce your pain and heal your herniated disc. Common treatments include chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression and therapeutic exercises. These treatments can be used on their own or as part of a total wellness package.


Chiropractic Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce herniated disc pain by ensuring each vertebra is in its proper position. When a vertebra is out of alignment, it can put pressure on the disc, causing an increase in your symptoms. By correcting the misalignment, we are helping to take the pressure off your disc and the surrounding nerves and soft tissues.


Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression helps increase the spaces between your discs. The discs in the spine do not have blood in them. Instead, they are filled with a clear fluid that contains nutrients. By increases the spaces between your vertebrae, we are giving your discs room to retract and refill with fluid so they can heal.


Therapeutic Exercises
There are certain exercises and stretches you can perform to help lessen the pain caused by a disc that is pressing on a nerve root, which can provide relief for when your symptoms flare.
