Herniated Disc Treatment

Chiropractic Treatments of Herniated Discs without Surgery

Dr. Bearden has successfully treated nearly 500 patients with diagnosed herniated discs. Chiropractic treatments can cure a plethora of physiological conditions. Many musculoskeletal problems can be remedied without surgery. Chiropractic treatments are nonsurgical and hence noninvasive. Other than Fibromyalgia, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and pinched nerve in various parts of the body, chiropractic treatment can cure herniated discs.
Herniated discs are very common among kids and adults. Injury, obesity, poor posture and weakening bone density are some of the many reasons behind herniated discs. Let us explore the causes, symptoms and chiropractic treatment of herniated discs in detail.

What are Herniated Discs?

Herniated discs are often referred to as slipped discs. The vertebrae which form our backbone have several discs.

These are known as inter-vertebral discs. The discs form a cushion between two vertebrae of the spine. These discs function to absorb shock, distribute the pressure and also help us have the natural posture. These discs have a hard outer layer and a gel like inner layer known as annulus fibrosus and nucleus pulposus respectively. When annulus fibrosus (the harder outer layer) cracks or incurs damaged due to injury or obesity or other factor, the gel like center or nucleus pulposus pushes outward and the gelatin like material tends to flow out. This is the condition that is known as herniated disc. Excluding the first two vertebrae, all vertebrae have discs and patients can have one or more herniated discs simultaneously.

Causes of Herniated Discs

Herniated discs primarily result from an injury of some sort. Patients who have a history of skeletal problems are more vulnerable to the condition. Being overweight, having poor posture, prolonged sitting, walking or even improper exercise can cause herniated discs. Spinal problems such as misalignment or irregular curvature of the spine can also cause herniated discs.

Symptoms of Herniated Discs

Initially, when the discs start to degenerate, one may not feel much pain and may not even realize there is something wrong. With time, there would be neck pain and back pain. Gradually, one would struggle to sit properly, stand straight and there will be strange sensations in the area around the disc at the back or neck or lower back. As the condition worsens, the pain will become unbearable. Treatment is recommended at an earlier stage so the situation can be prevented from worsening.

Chiropractic Treatment of Herniated Discs

Non-surgical and non-invasive therapy for herniated discs by chiropractors has shown excellent results. Dr. Bearden creates an individual personalized treatment plan for each patient. The individualized therapy plan is designed based on the exact condition of herniated discs, medical history of the patient and the type of remedy that will work for the patient’s lifestyle. Treatment options include spinal decompression, spinal lasers, chiropractic adjustments and more. From holistic physiotherapy to localized massages, posture correction to spinal manipulation or adjustment, there are several ways to treat herniated discs with chiropractic care.

My sciatica was bothering me so bad it was making it very difficult to live a normal life, at least to move normally without pretty bad pain. It was limiting the things I could do and even making it hard to do my job at times. After About three months of going to Action, Spine and Joint regularly (2 to 3 times weekly), the pain is now gone! The staff there is super friendly and accommodating and the Dr. Casey and Dr. Josh are amazing! I see why they were voted the Best Chiropractic office in Nashville for many years. Would highly recommend them!

I came to Action with significant disc compression between L5 & S1, with steady pain 8/10 and stabs way past 10. I went from not being able to walk the day after my injury to able to walk without significant pain in less than a week. Dr. Bearden & Dr. Joshua are both experts at their craft, they listened when I told them what was working, what wasn't, and what I could afford, and they worked with me to get me on a treatment plan that has helped me regain mobility & reduce pain in a short amount of time. The front of house staff is helpful, kind & generally lovely. If you're thinking about chiropractic care, look mo further than Action!

After being involved in an auto accident I had major pain to my lower back from a bulged disk, and other joint pains. The pain was constant and went on for months. Due to a pinched nerve and misalignment. After orthopedic appointments and MRIs my Dr. Referred me to these guys for help. I have noticed a major improvement since my first visit and feeling better and better every time I go. I have more energy, less pain, I am able to do things without the pain I was feeling before without the need for surgery! My blood psi is back to normal, and much more! I would highly recommend Action Spine and Joint to anyone needing to alleviate pain in their body! The physical therapy and chiropractic care is on point! And everyone is very friendly and professional.

I had a very positive experience with the staff and provider each time I have a session. I have pain and spinal issues and treatment they are providing puts me on a path for healing. Dr. Casey and Dr. Joshs’ knowledge reflects in my care. They are empathetic and respectful to my concerns and needs for my back pain. So glad I found them.

Love Dr. Josh and Dr. Casey. When I have needed adjustment, they have always straightened me out! I especially appreciate their approach to post-injury care. They carefully assess to rule out fractures or other serious complications, including using X ray on site if needed, before performing a chiropractic adjustment. They also have excellent therapists on staff and a diverse array of equipment that can help correct posture, relieve inflammation, treat pain, and promote healing. My family and I have trusted them for years.
