Bloomington Herniated Discs

Disc injuries can be agonizing  and debilitating.   Here at  our Chiropractic Clinic, we have a team of doctors with over 50 years combined experience in the diagnosis and treatment of herniated discs.   We also have state of the art equipment and facilities for treatment and pain relief.

Disc injuries can vary in the form and severeness  of symptoms.   A disc injury can be associated to a number of disc conditions.   A disc bulge can push onto nerves in the spine, resulting in a lot of pain and limited movement.  However,  some people can have disc bulges and experience little to no pain, or referred pain elsewhere in the body.   For this reason, it is important to be assessed by the experts, Dr. Craig Morrow and Dr. Greg Morrow, for the underlying cause of disc pain, to ensure that treatment matches the injury.

The spine is made up of bones called vertebrae which are separated by discs that act like shock absorbers. Discs are made of very tough cartilage, with a soft, jelly-like fluid inside. The discs between your vertebrae allow the flexibility of motion in the spine. The discs also allow an exit and entry point for spinal nerves that carry messages to the brain and body.

Quite often, disc injuries are caused by a build-up of minor damage, rather than a single major incident.   Minor occurrences include bad posture, bad  lifting and bending techniques, or a repetitive action. These occurrences can put pressure on the disc that accumulates until  just  a minute movement, like bending or standing, triggers painful symptoms.

Most of these disc injuries differ  in the type and severeness  of symptoms.   A disc bulge can push onto nerves in the spine, resulting in a lot of pain and limited movement. On the other hand, people can have disc bulges and experience little to no pain, or referred pain elsewhere in the body. For this reason, it is important to be assessed for the underlying cause of disc pain, to ensure that treatment matches the injury.

Chiropractic Care and Treatment

Most disk injuries will respond well to chiropractic care and treatment.  It is a holistic option that examines the entire musculoskeletal system, rather than focusing on only the symptoms of disc injury. This method identifies area of weakness in the spine that may contribute to any disc problems, as well as targeting the site of the disc pain. At the Bloomington Neurospinal Chiropractic Clinic treatment for disc injuries usually involves specific muscle release, flexion distraction and spinal adjustments.   Step by step ,  as the condition improves, rehabilitation exercises will be given.  These exercises involve stretches and strengthening in order to stabilize the status.
