Effectively Treating Your Bulging or Herniated Disc
A herniated disc or bulging disc can be the cause of a workplace injury, car accident, a slip and fall, a sports injury or simply the aging process. Regardless of the cause, a herniated disc can trigger severe and chronic pain and discomfort -- the kind that keeps you from sleeping, concentrating, working, playing with your kids or grandkids and getting on with your life.
That’s why your chiropractor at Metro Denver Accident & Injury Centers is here to diagnose your herniated disc symptoms and provide a range of carefully considered treatment options. You’ll find chiropractic doctors Ronald Losiewicz, Paul Endriss and Christopher Higgins at offices conveniently located in Westminster, Lakewood and Aurora and receive non-invasive, surgery-free relief for all of your disc and spine problems.
First, let’s take a quick look at these two related spinal conditions.
Bulging Disc or Herniated Disc?
Discs fit between the vertebrae of your spine, cushioning the impact of day-to-day life. But they can be damaged by accident or deteriorate with age. They can dry out so that the cartilage surface grows brittle. When the disc is weakened like this, it can get squeezed out of place along your spinal column by your weight pressing down on it.
A disc herniates, or ruptured, on the other hand, by actually splitting open due to an injury or the aging process. This can be even more painful than a bulging disc because the damage rubs and irritates the now-exposed nerve root.
Treating Your Disc Problems
We’ll start your first appointment with a thorough exam, including X-rays. With that, we can gauge the full scope of your spinal problems and make sure your condition isn’t impacting your body elsewhere.
Once we have an accurate diagnosis of a bulging or herniated disc, we can formulate an effective treatment plan, which we’ll carefully explain before proceeding. We’ll use appropriate non-surgical treatment techniques, such as various methods of spinal realignment, to ease the symptoms of your disc problems and alleviate your pain.
