Herniated Disc Treatment

If you're suffering from a herniated disc, you may be in a great deal of pain. There's a silver lining, however: you can contact Dr. Nicole Rodriguez and Dr. José Lorenzo at Bensa Chiropractic and Wellness for herniated disc treatment in Bradenton, FL. Both doctors excel at treating aches and pains and chiropractic care can be highly effective for addressing herniated discs.

Understanding Herniated Discs

Your spine is quite amazing when you stop to think about it. On one hand, the spine is very durable and provides a lot of protection for the sensitive nerves and soft tissues that make up your spinal cord.  On the other hand, the spine is quite flexible, and when healthy, allows for ample mobility.

The spine balances durability and flexibility because it is made up of small, interconnected bones called vertebrae. The joints between vertebrae make it possible for the spine to bend relatively easily. The vertebrae are cushioned by discs made of a soft, gel-like material. Sometimes the interior of the discs will bulge out, however, resulting in a herniated disc. Once pinched between the vertebrae or put under pressure, this can cause a lot of pain.

Fortunately, herniated discs are treatable. Chiropractic care, with its emphasis on whole-body care, is arguably the best approach for addressing bulging and herniated discs. You can work with Dr. Rodriguez and Dr. Lorenzo at Bensa Chiropractic and Wellness to secure herniated disc treatment in Bradenton, FL.

How Chiropractors Treat Herniated Discs

First, a chiropractor will work with you to better understand your condition and the source of your pains. From there, it’s possible to develop a customized treatment plan. Ultimately, customized treatment is often the most effective, especially with complicated issues like herniated discs.

Spinal manipulation can be used to ensure better alignment of the spine and to reduce pressure. This could help the discs get back into proper form. Soft tissue massage can reduce muscle strain on the spine, which may be contributing to your condition. The right therapeutic exercises can both reduce the risk of suffering a herniated disc and provide relief for existing disc issues.

Traction treatment is especially effective for disc issues. This treatment emphasizes slowly and gently stretching the spine out, which can encourage healing and help your discs get back into proper shape. Chiropractors can perform traction treatments manually with the use of their hands. Mechanical traction, meanwhile, uses specialized tables and pulleys guided by advanced computer software to slowly and gently stretch the spine. These treatments take several sessions but help resolve the underlying problem.
