Disc Injury //
What is it?
The spine is comprised of bones shaped like blocks alternated with disc in between these bones. The reason that our spines have the great range of motion that they do, is in part because of this feature. The discs are circular and have a jelly like center called the nucleus. However, in some cases injury can occur to these structures allowing the nucleus to escape and irritate the spinal nerves. Chiropractic care has shown great results with treating disc herniations conservatively.
What are the Symptoms?
Dull pain in the low back, sensation changes and pain that radiates to the legs, painful range of motions.
