Herniated Disc Symptoms
For those with a herniated disc, pain occurs primarily in the lower back but it can also impact the neck as well as the rest of the spine. The location of the herniated disc relates to where the pain occurs. For definitive answers, trust our experienced chiropractor in Montgomery to recommend the right treatment plan. These are common symptoms that may indicate a herniated disc:
- Does your arm or leg hurt? If you have a herniated disc in the lower back, pain may occur along the buttocks, thigh, and calf. In some cases, clients indicate pain in their foot as well. On the other hand, if you have a herniated neck disc, it may affect your arm and shoulder. Also, a herniated neck disc may cause sharp pain during sudden movements such as a sneeze or cough.
- Do you feel numbness or tingling? Our chiropractor can usually treat herniated discs that cause radiating numbness in your extremities.
- What about muscle weakness? With herniated discs, muscles often weaken. This affects your ability to grasp objects and may cause you to stumble.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment for herniated discs. That means the chiropractor doesn't use drugs or surgery during treatment. Our chiropractor can verify the diagnosis and work with you to find the best treatment.
One possible treatment involves focused adjustments using low force to realign your herniated discs. Sometimes, lumbar or cervical traction can open up the joints and release some of the pressure on the herniated disc. Our chiropractor will only recommend procedures that are safe for you based on your physical condition.
