Disc Herniation Treatment in York, PA
Discs are integral to the health of your spine. Acting as a cushion for the spinal bones (vertebrae), discs are composed of a hard exterior and a soft interior. If the disc becomes injured or damaged in some way, this could cause the interior contents to bulge. In cases where the herniated disc presses on the nerves in the spine, this can cause serious pain.
Herniated or bulging discs can cause a number of symptoms, including:
- arm, leg and back pain;
- muscle weakness.
At Chiropractic Medical Center, we offer a number of therapy options to treat disc herniations and bulges. During your first appointment, a member of our healthcare team will perform a physical examination and run a diagnostic assessment to locate the source of the pain. Next, he or she will recommend a treatment plan designed to safely and effectively alleviate your pain.
Potential treatment plans for herniated or bulging discs include spinal decompression, chiropractic care and physiotherapy. As one of our most important goals is providing patient education, we can also offer advice on lifestyle plans that can be implemented to expedite recovery.
