Disc Bulge Chiropractic Treatment
Spinal discs are shock absorbers for the spine, acting like cushions between the vertebrae or individual bones of the spinal column. It is common to experience neck and back pain due to bulging or herniated discs. Malvern Chiropractic Clinic and Melbourne Spine Clinic who Cox® certified chiropractors who offer disc bulge chiropractic treatment.
According to a chiropractor, a disc bulge occurs when an intervertebral disc (IVD) moves or expands from its set boundaries, commonly known as a slipped disc. While it can cause pain and require bulging disc treatment, not all disc bulges lead to neck or back pain. For example, some patients may only have leg or arm pain.
In more severe cases, a disc bulge may herniate or rupture, causing the material inside the disc to spread into the spine. Herniated disc chiropractic treatment is needed to alleviate the pain, as it can exert tremendous pressure on the spinal column and nerves. This severe medical condition calls for prompt attention.
Malvern Chiropractic Clinic and Melbourne Spine Clinic provide both herniated disc chiropractic decompression treatment and bulging disc chiropractic spinal decompression therapy. The main causes of bulging discs are as follows:
- Poor Posture or Ergonomics
Every time you sit, stand, or work, it adds stress to your spinal discs and joints. Examples of poor posture are when you slouch, bend forward a lot or continuously hunch your shoulders. It places excessive stress on your spine in the long term.
- Load or Trauma
Trauma may be direct or indirect, such as car crashes, falls, or spontaneous actions, such as when you bend, lift, or twist, increasing the intradiscal pressure dramatically
- Lifestyle Choices
You may have a family history of this type of condition or sit behind a desk in an office all day and not exercise enough. Smoking introduces toxins into the body known to degrade the cartilage in your spinal discs, while being overweight or not eating properly are both not good for spinal health.
Malvern Chiropractic Clinic and Melbourne Spine Clinic have chiropractors who are highly educated and trained to help treat and manage spinal disc bulges by means of gentle force as indicated by the Cox® Technic. Your initial consultation consists of a comprehensive medical history and examination to diagnose any suspected spinal disc issues or injuries.
