Disc Injury Relief
Spinal discs are small structures, but they can cause significant problems when they’re bulging. It causes pain and decreases a person’s mobility. And the worst part is that they can strike anyone at any time. Back and neck pain are quite common complaints among those who visit us at Stone Bridge Wellness in Elkins Park for disc injuries.
Most back and neck pain is insignificant, and regular chiropractic adjustments can provide some relief. Herniated discs are a common cause of back and neck pain but are a more severe issue. Herniated discs occur when the rubber pad supporting the spinal disc slips out of place.
What Can Cause Disc Injuries?
A herniated disc, or bulging disc, is a condition that causes a disc to bulge outside of the average radius in the spine. When this happens, a person may not even know anything is wrong until the bulging disc is pressing up against the nerve in the spinal column, causing pain.
Depending on its location on the spine, a herniated disc can cause pain and loss of range of motion. At Stone Bridge Wellness, Dr. Beth Snyder, DC understands just how painful and difficult it can be to suffer from this unbearable spine condition.
