Boyd Chiropractic Center in Castle Rock understands how debilitating the pain of a herniated disk can be. We treat a wide range of conditions that cause back pain to patients, including spinal decompression, bulging disk, and herniated disk. When your disk injuries and weighing you down, we can offer practical, actionable solutions that help you find relief from your pain.
What is a Herniated Disk?
Also referred to as a ruptured disk, bulging disk, or a slipped disk, a herniated disk occurs when the jelly-like substance at the center of your spinal disk (the nucleus) pushes out through a tiny tear in the rubbery exterior of the disk (called the annulus). While this can occur at any location on the spine, when it occurs in specific areas, it causes irritation to nearby nerves that may result in pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in one of your arms or legs.
Fortunately, surgery is rarely necessary to create a bulging disk or herniated disk though some physicians may recommend surgery. Before considering such invasive methods for treating a condition that will often correct itself over time, consider working with a chiropractor who performs spinal decompression therapy to address the problem, relieve the pain, and promote natural healing.
Non-surgical spinal decompression under chiropractor care can deliver astonishing results without drugs and without the long recovery time or enormous risks spinal surgery represents for patients. Even with surgery, results are never guaranteed.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
The other benefit of working with a chiropractor to treat a bulging disk is the preventative exercises and movement you will learn to help you avoid experiencing this pain again in the future. It’s not enough to learn the proper movements. You must practice them daily until they become the natural way you move in order to experience the full benefit they offer.
At Boyd Chiropractic Center, we offer a wide range of treatment options that go beyond spinal decompression therapy and include electrical muscle stimulation, cold laser treatment, and table treatments to address different types of back and spine pain. We will work with you to identify the precise cause of your pain whether it is a disk injury, something external, soft tissue damage, and more. So, we can treat your pain more effectively.
