Synergy Rehab & Physiotherapy Offers Help for Slipped, Bulging & Herniated Discs
The spine is composed of an intricate system of bones, discs, tendons, ligaments, and muscles that function together to provide a smooth action for everyday movement. Discs are rubbery pads filled with gel-like material that acts as a cushion between the spinal vertebrae. These discs can experience a variety of problems from injury, or even from normal wear and tear. Synergy Rehab & Physiotherapy offers a number of treatments to help relieve back pain from disc problems.
Types of Disc Problems
In a “bulging” disc, the disc that cushions the spinal bones may become damaged and press on the spinal canal, either to one side or the other. The result is pain or tingling on one side of the body. A “herniated disc” is one in which the gel-like substance inside a disc is pushed out through a crack in the material. Herniation is a disc of the lower back can cause arm or leg pain, numbness or weakness in the extremities. A “slipped” disc is another term for a herniated disc. Other types of disc problems can occur from degenerative conditions.
Chiropractic Treatment of Disc Disorders
Your Vaughan chiropractor can offer a variety of treatments to reduce the pain from disc disorders, so you can enjoy normal function.
