Disc Herniation: How Chiropractic Treatment and Soft Tissue Mobilization Can Help

Disc herniation is a condition in which a portion of the intervertebral disc becomes displaced and presses on the adjacent nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs and other parts of the body. This condition can cause considerable pain and discomfort, and can even limit mobility and mobility-related activities. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments available to help manage and even resolve the symptoms associated with disc herniation. One of these treatments is chiropractic care, which can involve the use of spinal adjustments, soft tissue mobilization, and exercise prescription.

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health care that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its ability to affect overall health and well-being. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to help relieve pain and restore normal function. For disc herniation, they typically use manual adjustments to realign the spine, soft tissue mobilization to reduce muscle spasms and help release tight muscles, and exercise prescription to strengthen the muscles that support the spine.

Spinal adjustments are typically done by hand and involve the chiropractor manipulating the spine in order to realign the vertebrae. This helps to reduce pain and improve range of motion. Soft tissue mobilization is another technique used to reduce muscle spasms and to help release tight muscles. This can be done by hand or with instruments. Finally, exercise prescription is used to strengthen the muscles that support the spine and help maintain proper posture. This includes stretching, strengthening, and balance exercises.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to manage and even resolve the symptoms of disc herniation. Our doctors are highly skilled in treating this condition through the use of adjustments, soft tissue mobilization, and exercise prescription.
