Corrective Chiropractic Care for Disc Injury in Boca Raton, Florida

Discs are located between the vertebrae of your spine and when they are working properly, you are able to move freely, in all directions and without pain. If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain or a tingling or numbness sensation in your arms or legs, we invite you to Boca Chiropractic for a complete evaluation with our chiropractor.  Our Boca Raton chiropractors, Dr. Lee Smith and Dr. Noah Riegel use motion x-rays along with manual and visual evaluation to identify any disc concerns in your spine. Some disc injuries happen instantly during a car accident, work injury or while playing sports, while others can worsen gradually over time if you have poor posture or a previous injury that did not properly heal. Whether you can identify the situation that created a disc concern or it is a mystery, our chiropractor identifies the location of the disc issue and then completes a chiropractic care plan to reduce your symptoms and allow your discs to heal.

Disc Concerns and Chiropractic Care

If you live in the Boca Raton area and are seeking natural, no surgery and drug free relief for your back or neck pain, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible. Our Boca Raton chiropractors provide a complete evaluation to determine the cause of your pain. Some common disc concerns our chiropractic plan cares for include:

  • Bulging disc- if the gel that is typically contained inside of the disc, begins to bulge out of the center, it interferes with disc placement and may also interrupt  healthy nerve signals. Bulging discs are also known as protruding discs.
  • Herniated disc- if the disc gel has slipped out of the protective disc covering, it is known as a herniated disc or herniation. The gel slip may interfere with your movements since the vertebrae cushioning is reduced. This may also result in the numbness or tingling sensations in your arms and legs, depending on the location of the herniated disc.
  • Disc extrusion- when the disc is extremely dehydrated and excessively bulges, part of it may break off and interfere with your pain-free motion.
  • Disc degeneration- wear and tear and the aging process may result in a flattening of the discs. This may also occur from years of poor posture.
