Chiropractic Treatment for Disc Herniation
Back pain is an unfortunately common ailment for many adults, and there are many causes. Understanding the cause is important to finding the most effective treatment. Lower back pain is often caused by disc displacement in the spine, making daily activities nearly impossible.
Any stage of disc derangement can cause pain.
How much pain depends upon the individual and the location of the derangement. Extrusion and sequestration pose the most serious risk of the four. Anytime nucleus pulposus has left its confinement, it can cause impingement and pain.
In rare cases, disc derangement actually pinches a nerve causing pain. Usually, the pain associated with disc derangement comes from the inflammatory response of the body to the change in structure. Inflammation occurs around the deranged disc, causing the nerve to become irritated. This in turn causes pain.
An MRI can tell show the location and what type of disc derangement is present.
