Have you ever had back pain? It may be caused by a herniated disc. A doctor may be able to resolve this with treatments to help relieve your symptoms and get the things that make life worth living again in no time.
A herniated disc is when the soft center of an intervertebral disc protrudes through a tear in its surrounding cartilage end plate and into the spinal canal. This can cause pressure on nearby nerves, resulting in severe pain that radiates throughout your body. The good news is there are treatments available to help relieve your symptoms and get you back to doing the things you love most.
Achieving this goal is dependent on the level and severity of pain, as well as symptoms that a patient may be experiencing. Each individualized treatment plan should take these factors into account in order for it to meet their needs.
In most cases, the treatment involves more non-invasive conservative treatment options. Chiropractic treatment for herniated discs along with exercise are primary examples of this.
More aggressive types of treatment for disc herniations include surgical intervention. This is usually only considered once a patient has attempted and failed at conservative treatments.
Certainly, there are cases in which the patient can manage their own pain, home care is possible.
