A herniated disc can bring on symptoms such as neck
Dr. John Pispidikis advises having an evaluation performed at the first sign of pain. This evaluation includes a first visit consultation along with chiropractic, neurological and orthopedic evaluations, any necessary x-rays and a complete report of your test results.
Here are a few causes for a herniated disc:
Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which is needed to heal.
Spinal Decompression Therapyis non-invasive and provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation. This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum between the vertebrae which pulls the disc back into shape.
Much like a repetitive stress injury, the decompression works in very minute increments. But over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself, heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness and future injuries.
