A bulged disc is a common spinal injury. It can occur in your lumbar spine (lower back), thoracic spine (upper and mid back) or your cervical spine (neck).
A bulging disc can commonly be referred to as a slipped disc or a protruding disc. However, when the disc bulge is significant enough for the disc nucleus to come out of the annulus, it is known as a herniated disc.
A herniated disc can present in two ways, the nucealus can either be spill out on the side of the vertebrae (Lateral canal stenosis) or at the back of the vertebrae (central cancal stenosis). Once our chiropractors have finished their examination, they will be able to distinguish between the two.
This injury is commonly seen at a chiropractic clinic.
Our Chiropractors will assess the lower back pain with a detailed history, followed up by a postural, neurological and orthopaedic testing to eliminate any neurological changes.
Our chiropractors will then discuss the reasoning behind the lower back pain, and once determined safe, our chiropractor will use a series of treatments which includes but is not limited to gentle spinal manipulations, soft tissues treatment, muscle rehab and corrective exercises.
Our clinic's philosophy is based on one simple idea and that is information is to be shared. If you want more information reach out and allow us to share your healing journey.
