How to Know if You Have a Disc Herniation

Back pain can be a result of many different types of conditions or injuries. Understanding exactly what is causing your back pain is crucial to getting the correct treatment. At Aloha Wellness, serving North Central San Antonio, TX, and surrounding areas, we provide the diagnostics and treatment you need to treat conditions such as herniated discs. Keep reading to learn more about this condition.

What Is a Herniated Disc?

Between each vertebra of the spine, there is a soft cushion of tissue. This tissue keeps the bones of the disc from rubbing together and also helps to insulate the sensitive nerves of the spine. This tissue can become ruptured or dislodged. This can happen as a result of an injury or because of degenerative disc disease.

Disc Herniation Symptoms 

When a disc has become herniated you may notice a cracking or grinding sound in your neck. This may or may not be associated with pain at first.

Neck and back pain is one of the main symptoms of this condition. The pain will often stay centered in one area. Pain from this condition does not usually radiate in the same way that nerve pain does.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

If you suspect that you have a herniated disc, make an appointment with our local chiropractor. We will be able to perform diagnostics to determine the nature of your injury. A disc herniation will often show up on an x-ray. You cannot determine a herniation through self-diagnosis.

If it is determined that you have a disc herniation, we will develop a treatment plan for you. This treatment plan can include spinal adjustment and decompression therapy.
