Disc Problems in Serangoon

chiropractor adjusting patients lower back

Disc pain can be excruciating, and the condition is not well understood yet. Although there’s no such thing as a slipped disc, bulging, protruding and herniated discs are very real.

Discs are doughnut-shaped structures between the bones of the vertebrae. They act as spacers to keep the bones from grinding against each other, as well as shock absorbers. Each spinal disc has a jelly-like centre contained by bands of fibrous tissue. Healthy discs allow you to turn and bend with ease. Improper lifting, slips, falls, and car accidents can cause the core to shift and disc issues arise.

However, disc problems seem to arise spontaneously, with no precipitating injury. And spontaneous remission can also occur. Research has not been able to identify the reasons for disc issues, but what we know is that a healthy, mobile, strong and stable spine is better able to recover from injuries. And when your spine is healthier, you can also experience better overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does chiropractic help address disc problems?

Chiropractic adjustments can effectively restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones. If addressed before permanent damage takes place, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape.

Aren’t disc problems simply due to the normal ageing process?

No. However, many disc problems are due to years of neglect. Many people with spinal problems won’t experience symptoms until they’re in an advanced stage of degeneration. Many senior citizens have maintained their spine throughout their lives, who still enjoy optimal spinal health and function.
