A slipped disc, also known as a disc herniation or rupture, can cause back pain, tingling in your arms or legs, and problems with mobility. If you have a slipped disc, our chiropractors can provide spinal decompression therapy, which can be effective in healing. Spine Pain Center features six clinics in North Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, Surfside Beach, Irmo, Columbia, and North Myrtle Beach, SC, with a team of chiropractors that will assess your back pain and create a treatment plan that is going to provide you relief.
Symptoms of a Slipped Disc
Some symptoms of a slipped disc include sharp or shooting pain in an arm or leg that is not from an injury, numbness or tingling in your legs, feet, arms, or hands, neck pain, and lower back pain. The site of the symptom depends on the location of the disc that is not working correctly. You may also be experiencing discomfort in the buttocks as well as muscle weakness. If you have neck pain, arm or leg pain, lower back pain, or chronic pain in your back, it could be due to a slipped disc, and spinal decompression therapy may be necessary to help reduce the discomfort.
Slipped Disc Treatments
If you need surgery for a slipped disc, you might consider therapy from our chiropractors. The procedure involves opening up the space between vertebrae where there is compression. This provides the disc the space it needs to heal. If you have a herniated disc that is being compressed, it will not be able to heal naturally. The pain you feel can be caused from the disc pressing down on a nerve ending. Treatment with spinal decompression therapy is progressive. Gentle stretching, chiropractic adjustments, hot or cold therapy, and an ultrasound may all be part of your treatment plan in managing a slipped disc.
