Herniated Disc Relief FAQs

If you’re suffering from low back pain accompanied by muscle numbness or weakness, you could have a herniated disc. At Aloha Wellness-Chiropractic and Nutrition, we offer pain relief caused by herniated discs through chiropractic care. Here are some frequently asked questions we often receive at our San Antonio clinic about herniated discs.

What is a herniated disc?

Your spinal discs are composed of a thick outer casing that contains a gel-like substance within. This substance helps cushion spinal bones to facilitate movement. A herniated disc is when the outer casing of the disc cracks or ruptures, causing the gel-like substance to leak through. If the damaged disc starts to irritate spinal nerves, you could feel discomfort and pain.

What can cause a herniated disc?

Herniated discs are often caused by gradual wear and tear, known as disc degeneration. Seniors are often at risk of a herniated disc due to spinal wear and tear over the years. If your job puts undue stress on your spine, you’re more susceptible to this condition. Sedentary people are also at risk due to putting excess pressure on spinal bones and nerves for extended periods of time that their body is not used to.

What are the symptoms of a herniated disc? 

Herniated discs can cause neck or back discomfort and pain, numbness in your leg, muscle weakness, muscle spasms, or a tingling sensation due to the disc placing pressure on a nerve. If you experience symptoms that are interfering with your way of life, contact our North Central San Antonio chiropractor for treatment.

Do I need surgery for a herniated disc?

Surgery is an option for treating herniated discs, depending on the severity of your condition. However, most people suffering from herniated discs benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic care works to naturally alleviate the cause of your pain or discomfort without any invasive procedures or medications.  We offer therapies like chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, or corrective exercises for pain relief and healing at our clinic. After a thorough physical examination, our San Antonio chiropractor can determine what chiropractic methods are best for treating your condition.
