Disc Bulges

An intervertebral disc separates the vertebra in your spine. The purpose of the intervertebral disc is to act as a shock absorber and provide a cushion for each vertebra. When the disc is damaged conditions such as disc bulges and herniation arise. These conditions cause the jelly-like center to be pushed out. This is very common and sometimes not associated with any pain. If the disc material is being pushed upon a surrounding nerve then moderate to severe pain and weakness in your legs or arms may result. A chiropractor can perform an exam on your back to determine the extent of the injury and determine the best course of care. Pammer Chiropractic can often determine the proper treatment, prevent worsening of the herniation, and provide relief of pain.
