Herniated Disc Treatment

CUnfortunately, a herniated disc could greatly reduce your quality of life. You might find yourself skipping activities you love, such as playing with your kids or grandkids or taking your dog for a walk at the park. The good news is that you can secure lasting pain relief by working with a chiropractor. If you need assistance with a herniated disc and live in or near Decatur, IL, come see Dr. Suzanne Davis.

Chiropractic Care for Herniated Discs

Herniated discs are a common condition, especially as you grow older. Over time, your discs, which are soft gel-like cushions between your vertebrae, will lose fluid and their shape will become distorted. This can increase the risk of suffering a herniated disc, which occurs when the disc ruptures or leaks, resulting in back pain and other issues. Herniated discs are most common in the lower back but can occur anywhere along the spine. 

Chiropractors can use a variety of treatments to address herniated discs, including chiropractic adjustments, traction, stretching, and therapeutic exercises. Stretching out the spine, in particular, can help mitigate herniated discs and reduce the risk of future issues. Besides providing care in the office, a chiropractor can teach you various exercises and stretches you can perform at home to reduce the risk of slipping discs and to address any current issues you have.

The exact approach will depend on your specific condition. A chiropractor can work with you to craft a custom treatment plan for your herniated discs and any related problems you might have.  If you're struggling with a herniated disc and live near Decatur, IL, schedule an appointment with Dr. Davis.

The Advantages of Chiropractic Care

If you’re suffering from herniated discs or other back problems, your first instinct might be to use pain medication. While these medications can provide short-term relief in some cases, they won’t resolve the issues with your discs. This means that the pain will return once the medication wears off. Further, since pain medications only block pain signals, you could aggravate your disc issues.

By working with a chiropractor, you can address the herniated disc itself. This could provide lasting pain relief, which in turn will improve your overall quality of life. Pain medications can be expensive and addictive, so it’s best not to rely on them when longer-lasting treatment is available. If you're looking for lasting relief from a herniated disc and live in the vicinity of Decatur, IL, come see Dr. Davis. You can call (217) 877 2704 to schedule an appointment.
