Common Disc Injuries We Treat
Our Brick pain relief clinic has successfully treated a range of disc injuries, including:
- Herniated Disc: Occurs when the soft inner core of a spinal disc protrudes through its outer shell, putting pressure on nearby nerves and causing pain, numbness, or weakness.
- Bulging Disc: Happens when a disc weakens and protrudes slightly, pressing against spinal nerves and causing discomfort.
- Ruptured Disc: Occurs when the inner core breaks through the outer layer but remains connected to the disc, resulting in significant pain.
- Pinched Nerve: Disc injuries can lead to pinched nerves, causing radiating pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms or legs, known as radicular pain.
- Degenerative Disc Disease: This age-related condition involves the gradual breakdown of spinal discs, leading to reduced disc height, inflammation, and pain.
Diagnosis and Treatment of a Disc Injury
Accurate diagnosis of a disc injury is crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment plan. At our clinic, we offer in-house X-rays and thorough evaluations to pinpoint the source of your pain and tailor a treatment plan to your unique needs.
Our non-surgical treatment options for disc injuries include:
- Chiropractic Care: Dr. Walsh performs spinal adjustments to alleviate pressure on the affected disc and promote natural healing.
- Spinal Decompression: This non-surgical technique gently stretches the spine, relieving pressure on the discs and nerves in the neck or back.
- Acoustic Wave Therapy: High-energy soundwaves stimulate blood flow and promote tissue repair to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and improve overall tissue health.
- Ultrasound Therapy: High-frequency sound waves generate heat deep within the tissues to increase blood flow, relax muscles, and reduce pain and inflammation.
- Regenerative Medicine: For severe or chronic disc injuries, we offer advanced regenerative treatments, including human cellular tissue injections and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. These therapies harness your body’s natural healing mechanisms to address the root causes of pain and promote tissue regeneration.
A herniated disc, also known as a slipped disc or disc protrusion, can be a significant source of back or neck pain, often accompanied by radiating symptoms into the arms or legs. It occurs when the soft inner core of a spinal disc pushes through its tough, outer shell. Common causes include wear and tear, injury, genetics, obesity, or repetitive strain.
Symptoms of a herniated disc may include:
- Pain, tingling, or numbness in the back, neck, arms, or legs.
- Muscle weakness in affected areas.
- Difficulty walking or maintaining balance.
- Radiating pain that worsens with certain movements.
