Herniated Disc

Herniated discs can cause debilitating pain. If you think that you may have a herniated disc, it's important that you reach out for chiropractic care. At Spine Pain Center in North Myrtle Beach, SC, our chiropractic care team is here to help you get the pain relief you need. Here, we'll take a look at what can cause a herniated disc, symptoms that can indicate a herniated disc, and how chiropractic care can provide fast and lasting pain relief. 


Herniated Disc Causes

Spinal discs are small, soft cushions in between each vertebra. Discs have a tough exterior and a soft, jelly-like interior. Sometimes, the interior of the disc slips ruptures out of the tough exterior, causing a herniated disc. In some cases, herniated discs occur due to normal wear and tear of the body with age although twisting and turning while lifting something heavy can also cause the condition to occur.

Herniated Disc Symptoms

Symptoms of a herniated disc can differ from person to person. Commonly experienced symptoms include: 

  • Sharp pain in the leg, hip, or lower back
  • Pain that only occurs on one side of the body
  • Numbness or tingling in the affected area

Herniated discs may or may not cause back pain and may or may not be related to an acute injury.

Treatment for a Herniated Disc

A chiropractor on our team will talk with you about your symptoms and examine your spine to determine whether you have a herniated disc. If you do have a herniated disc, a personalized treatment plan will be designed to help meet your needs. 

Depending on your injury and medical history, your treatment plan may include several different therapeutic modalities to support your body's natural healing process, including chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression, soft tissue mobilization, nutritional counseling, and more.
