Herniated or slipped disc

A Herniated or Slipped disc is a severe injury or weakness which can cause the inner portion of the disc to protrude through the outer ring of the annulus fibrosus of an intervertebral disk. The intervertebral disc is a pad between two vertebras. It is a shock absorbing system which protects the back bones from damage (osteoarthritis). It also allows the nerves to send information to the muscles, joints, tendons or skin.

A herniated disc can occur in the cervical (neck), thoracic (upper) or lumbar (lower) spine. They tend to be most common in the lower back because it bears the most force on a daily basis. This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disk compresses one of the spinal nerves, one may also experience numbness and pain along the affected nerve.

It is a very common injury and one of the main reason of medical and chiropractic consultation in the world.

Effective treatment

3C doctor will analyze in detail the history of the pain and might recommend complementary tests such as X-rays or MRI. These tests allow to accurately evaluate the level and severity of the herniated disc.

Herniated or slipped disc is effectively treated by chiropractic and physiotherapy without using drugs or surgery. The most traditional treatment chiropractic uses is called “spinal adjustment”. It is a manual manipulation which consists at returning mobility to a vertebra or joint. The adjustment helps to reduce the pressure inside the disc and on the nerves to effectively reduce the pain. It also decreases muscle tension, improves posture and allow the body to enter into a healing phase.

Our doctors utilize the most successful and effective treatment methods from America and Europe.
