Dealing with an Injured Disc?

disc injury can be helped by a chiropractor

Have you been diagnosed with a disc injury or a slipped disc? The severity of a disc injury can depend heavily on the circumstances surrounding how it was sustained. The complexity and pain associated with the injury necessitate the care of an experienced chiropractor. The chiropractic team in Northbrook has the training to allow you to overcome your injury and return to living your life pain-free.

The thin cushions that space your vertebrae and allow them to function at their best are known as discs. These little discs have a rigid layer around their circumference and a more spongy center to cushion your spinal column. There are discs in between each one of your vertebrae and they are important in maintaining your flexibility and nerve function. If these discs were absent, movement would be impossible.


Disc Injury Northbrook

If there is a slipped disc in your back then the cushiony substance inside your disc has leaked partially out from underneath the vertebrae. This condition often results in the inflammation of the surrounding nerves and severe pain.

A more serious condition is when the disc becomes herniated. A herniated disc results in the internal fluid of the disc being pushed out even more so. This results in even more pain and at times partial paralysis of the nerves in the area.


DISC EXTRUSION

On the most extreme end of the disc injury spectrum, there is a disc extrusion. This condition results in the internal fluid of the disc popping nearly entirely out from underneath the disc or even bursting out completely. This often results in excruciating pain and a significant reduction in flexibility.
