Bulging or herniated discs are a relatively well known problems people experience in their back. Some people may experience these issues frequently and eventually undergo a surgical procedure to treat the issue. But, chiropractic care may offer an alternative to going under the knife.
Herniated or bulging dics refer to two separate issues
The terms herniated and bulging discs may often be used interchangeably. But, they are two separate issues, though both can cause pain in patients who are afflicted. The disc, refers to the cushions between the bones in your back. These are tough on the outside but are usually softer and gel like in the middle.
People seeking chiropractic for a herniated disc, have experienced a crack in the exterior of the disc. The inside gel like substance may then start to protrude out. This can pinch the nerves as it protrudes out and can occur in both the neck and the back. Common signs on herniated discs are pain, numbing, and tingling in the arms and hands. If the problem is present in discs in the lower back, people may experience pain and numbness in the arms and legs.
Bulging discs, another common problem for people seeking chiropractic care, refer to the cushion extending beyond its normal space. While this isn’t always a painful injury, it can put pressure on the spinal nerves which may cause pain.
