Intervertebral Disc Herniation
Intervertebral disc issues can be categorized into disc herniations, disc ruptures or disc degeneration. In the case of disc herniations and ruptures the disc is creating mechanical pressure against spinal nerve roots or the sensitive spinal cord itself.
This pressure on the sensitive spinal cord and spinal nerves causes not only pain creation but can be also causing chronic muscle spasm that can create skeletal imbalance, additional pressure on peripheral nerves, blood vessels, and other intervertebral discs.
Loss of Proper Alignment Between the Head & Neck
In many cases disc problems are often related to spinal misalignments, body imbalance, a loss of proper curvature, and symmetry in the spinal column. A loss of proper alignment & proper body balance is likely to be indicative of misalignments in the upper cervical vertebral column that can cause stress or pressure on the very sensitive brainstem, spinal cord and spinal nerves.
Your disc pain is understood, and using precise spinal corrective procedures we can create a physical environment that can allow the disc retract back into its normal position which can allow pressure to be relieved from the spinal cord, relieve the acute pain symptoms , allowing muscle spasms to cease, and prevent further disc damage and degeneration from occurring.
