Lumbar Herniated Disc Pain Relief
Chiropractic treatment of lumbar herniated disc pain relief is very safe and effective.
What is a herniated lumbar disc? The bones in our spine are called vertebrae. The vertebrae of the lower back are the lumbar vertebrae. Between each vertebra are lumbar intervertebral discs which are basically cushions that act as shock absorbers.
The lowest of the two lumbar intervertebral discs are the most susceptible to injury. The rear portion of the disc may bulge or protrude backward onto the spinal cord or a spinal nerve. This is called a herniated disc. When a disc problem occurs, it causes lower back pain and often causes pain to radiate down the leg due to the disc’s pressure on the sciatic nerve.
Chiropractors are trained to diagnose lumbar disc and sciatic nerve problems. They are also trained in spinal manipulation, which helps realign and restore proper movement to the lumbar vertebrae, reducing the amount of lumbar disc pressure upon the sciatic nerve. This gives you pain relief.
Campanella Chiropractic & Wellness also uses spinal decompression to treat herniated disc pain. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine, changing the force and position of the spine. This takes pressure off the discs, allowing them to retract and promoting healing.
