Herniated discs can cause pain and discomfort for those afflicted with this health issue. Herniated cervical land lumbar discs cause various symptoms, from mild to nearly debilitating, depending on where the herniation occurs. Some common symptoms include numbness, pain, and tingling throughout the body. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, the professionals at California Chiropractic are ready to assist you. We have been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with residents of Los Angeles, Simi Valley, and Chatsworth for many years.
Do You Have a Herniated Disc?
Herniated discs can be hard to diagnose because the symptoms vary based on where the herniated disc is located. When herniation occurs, the disc slips out of place and presses on nerves causing nearly debilitating pain. This scenario can occur in any part of the spine but is most common in the lower lumbar spine. It can also occur in the neck, but this is less common. Chiropractic care is a natural solution to reduce the symptoms of lumbar and cervical disk pain. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine whether or not you have experienced a herniated disc and provide treatment accordingly.
What Causes Herniated Discs?
The spine is very strong as it holds up our entire body. Herniated discs can occur due to strain, injury, twisting, or moving in an unfamiliar manner. Herniated discs can occur in many areas along the spine. Reports have also found that the occurrence of herniated discs can be hereditary, with many people in the same family suffering from the same problem.
How Will I Know if I Have a Herniated Disc?
The symptoms of herniated discs vary greatly based on which disc is affected and the degree of the herniation. If the disk isn’t pressing on a nerve, the sufferer may not even know they have the condition. If it is pressing on a nerve, the patient may have numbness of the limbs, weakness, and intense pain.
