Slipped Disc

A herniated disc can press against a nerve that exits next to the disc. This can cause inflammation of the nerve, which can lead to pain along the path of the nerve into any area of the body, including the back, neck, and leg. Chiropractic works by addressing your pain and other symptoms.

It's a misconception that chiropractors "pop a disc back in place" using forceful adjustments. Another misconception is that chiropractic care involves a few quick treatments, which can "fix" your disc. Instead, chiropractors treat herniated discs using gentle low-force techniques. Your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan for your herniated disc, and if your symptoms do not improve with chiropractic care techniques, your chiropractor may recommend a consultation with a spine surgeon.
