We at Market Place Chiropractic in Lake Stevens, WA, can help treat a range of conditions. One condition we can help treat is a herniated disc. Visit us to get treatment from our chiropractor.
What Is a Herniated Disc?
A herniated disc is a condition that impacts the disks that cushion the bones along your spine. These disks have a rubber but tough exterior that contains a soft and jellylike center. When there is a herniation of the disc, the jelly pushes through the tough exterior. This can happen at any place along the spine, but most often in the lower portion of the back. This condition can cause pain, along with weakness and numbness in the legs or arms. If you have back pain and think it may be a herniated disc in the Lake Stevens, WA, area, contact us at Market Place Chiropractic.
What Are the Symptoms?
While the typical symptom of a herniated disc is back pain, you may also experience neck, arm, or leg pain. The pain is dependent on where the disk is and if it is pressing on a nerve. Most often, only one side is impacted. However, it is possible to have pain going into your buttocks, thighs, and into your foot. You may experience a sharp or burning pain. Herniated discs can also cause you to have tingling or numbness that radiates into the impacted part of the body. Experiencing muscle weakness is also common with a herniated disc.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor can help with back pain and other symptoms related to a herniated disc. Our chiropractor can provide a chiropractic adjustment, which might also be called spinal manipulation, to help reduce the symptoms you feel. This adjustment can help relieve the pressure the disc is putting on the spine and other areas of the body. The treatment plan is specific to you based on your health, level of pain, and lifestyle. However, this is a safe and effective treatment for almost everyone. Our chiropractor will determine what type of treatment you require.
