Chiropractic and Herniated Discs
Here at Bourdage Chiropractic we see all different types of conditions. One of my favorite conditions to work with is herniated discs. Chiropractic and herniated discs go together like peanut butter and jelly. As soon as you hear, “you have a herniated disc” the first thing you should think about is seeing your chiropractor.
Herniated discs can be extremely painful. Many of my patients who come in with herniated discs are often times carried into the office by their significant other. If you have a lower back herniated disc the pain travels or shoots into your leg making it very difficult to walk or even stand. Because of the intensity of the pain, some feel chiropractic may not be helpful. This could not be further from the truth! When I see a patient being carried into my office I get excited! I’m not excited because the person is in so much pain, I am excited to know this person is about to get a whole lot of relief!
A simple, specific, adjustment to the spine can offer immense relief and pressure. Many times this relief is instantaneous! I had one patient once tell me “That was magic!” I love that, but it was not magic…it’s CHIROPRACTIC!
My role in treating those with herniated discs, is not to make the disc go back in place. The adjustment is designed to relieve pressure and misalignments to the spine so the body can begin to heal itself better!
If you, or someone you know has been suffering from a herniated disc, I’d love the opportunity to help you heal and feel better! Please give us a call at 773-545-9379.
