Pain associated with herniated or bulging discs can be very concerning to deal with. The pain associated with a herniated or bulging disc can go down the arms or legs and can even cause numbness and weakness in the extremities. This can lead many to think that they have a serious medical condition and can even lead to people getting surgery. Our office has been helping people who suffer from herniated or bulging discs find relief since 2011.

The Cause of Herniated Discs
There are many reasons why discs can herniate or bulge. It can be from years of wear and tear, and it can also happen with a single traumatic event such as a fall or a car accident. For the vast majority of people, herniated discs and the complications that come with them are treatable and do not suggest the need of serious medical intervention or surgery.
Most bulging discs are caused by what we do on a daily basis. Repetitive bending, lifting and twisting are common ways to injure a disc, and working a job that requires those movements can put you at a higher risk of injury. Disc issues can give you pain, numbness or tingling into the hands or legs depending on the location of the issue. A disc issue is usually more painful in the morning and gets better as the day goes on. People with a disc herniation may have trouble putting on shoes in the morning. Pain with a cough or sneeze or while using the restroom is another sign of a disc herniation. If you notice any of these symptoms, you likely have a disc that is bulging and irritating the nerves of your spine.
While many people with disc issues have a high level of pain, it’s important to know that it is still safe to treat someone with a disc issue even while they are in pain. Chiropractic care like what we provide in our office has been shown to be safe and effective at treating pain associated with a disc herniation.
