Slipped / Bulging Disc

Pain running down your leg? Is your slipped/bulging disc making it unbearable to get out of bed in the morning?

A disc injury can occur anywhere along the spine, but most often occurs in the lower back. It is sometimes called a disc bulge, herniation, protrusion, slipped or ruptured disk. It is one of the more common causes of lower back pain, as well as referred pain to the leg known as “sciatica.” Anyone who has had an injured disc can tell you how painful it is! Some women have even compared the pain to childbirth.

A vast majority of back pain is caused by one of the vertebral discs. Sometimes it can come out of no where and ‘Bang’ excruciating back pain that can take your breath away or even just progress slowly over time. We often see patients with muscle spasms, shooting pain, pins and needles, numbness, leg or groin pain and severe inflammation. It is really important to identify exactly which disc is causing your pain, because this is not normal or healthy especially if it continues to return.

The exciting thing is that discs can heal with time and care. It’s something we see all time in practice. Chiropractors have a special interest in the spine and nerves, being highly skilled at identifying disc injuries. At Unlock Health we pride ourselves in getting to the underlying cause of all health issues, especially disc injuries, to give you a straight answer on what is causing your pain and how to achieve a solution in the long term.
