Natural Disc Pain Treatment With Chiropractic
Millions of Americans suffer from some degree of disc pain. The sad truth is that our lifestyles contribute greatly to this epidemic: frequent sitting, slouching, and poor posture are recipes for developing mid and low back pain. The good news is that disc pain is treatable by both doctors and chiropractors alike.
Chiropractors at Caputo Chiropractic Center in Suwanee, GA, are experts at treating disc pain and improving your condition in the long-term.
What Is Disc Pain and Why Am I Suffering From It?
Disc pain originates anywhere along the spine, typically in the middle or lower back. Patients who suffer from this condition report a range of symptoms. Some patients experience tingling or numbness, while others report a sharp pain. Many people confuse disc pain with muscle issues, but disc pain is skeletal in nature. This means that it deals with your spine, not your muscles.
There are many reasons why a person can develop disc pain, ranging from a strain to aging. In many cases, the culprit is a herniated disc. This is when the nucleus of a spinal disc pushes through a tear in the annulus (exterior section of the spine). A herniated disc puts pressure on the nerves in your spine, causing the discomfort and pain sensations that so many patients report.
Other activities can also cause disc pain:
- Auto accident
- Workplace injury
- Physically demanding work
How Chiropractors Treat Disc Pain
Chiropractors are experts in treating not only disc pain, but an array of spinal issues. Chiropractors are experts in the spine, back and neck, which means they are a great place to start when it comes to alleviating your pain.
A visit to our chiropractic office in Suwanee starts with a thorough examination of your condition. Dr. Caputo will evaluate if your issue has to do with your discs. If so, we will then perform the necessary adjustments and spinal manipulations to move the disc back into place. Depending on the severity of your condition, many patients report that their condition improves after just a few short visits.
