Herniated Disc Treatment in Seattle, WA

Effective Chiropractic Care for Herniated Discs

A herniated disc, often referred to as a slipped or ruptured disc, occurs when the soft inner gel of a disc escapes through a tear in the tougher exterior, leading to nerve irritation, inflammation, and pain. This condition can affect any part of the spine but most commonly occurs in the lumbar region (lower back) or the cervical region (neck). At Fremont Spine + Wellness, we focus on non-surgical treatments to alleviate pain and restore mobility.

Symptoms of Herniated Discs:

  • Back or Neck Pain: Intense, sharp pain in the area of the herniated disc.
  • Sciatica: Radiating pain down the legs from the lower back, due to nerve compression in the lumbar area.
  • Arm Pain: When the herniation is in the cervical spine, pain can radiate down the arms and hands.
  • Numbness or Tingling: Patients often experience these sensations in the body areas served by the affected nerves.
  • Weakness: Muscles served by the affected nerves might weaken, affecting your ability to hold items, walk, or perform other daily activities.

Our Chiropractic Treatments for Herniated Discs Include:

  • Spinal Manipulation: Specific chiropractic techniques are employed to realign the spine and reduce the herniated disc’s pressure on nearby nerves.
  • Flexion-Distraction Technique: A gentle, non-thrusting type of spinal manipulation that helps to address disc herniation without applying direct force to the spine.
  • Pelvic Blocking Techniques: Cushions are placed under the pelvis to gently decompress the disc through specific movements, easing disc herniation symptoms.
  • Therapeutic Exercises: We guide patients through specific exercises that strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, which can help prevent further injury.
