Herniated Disc Pain Relief Treatment in Placentia

A herniated disc (sometimes called a slipped disc) is usually worse than a bulging disc. Discs herniate when the fibrous outer covering of an intervertebral disc (the annulus) splits open, allowing the shock-absorbing center filling (the nucleus pulposus) to extrude outside of the disc. This extruded material pinches nerves and can even put pressure on the spinal cord, causing pain to radiate from the back or neck where the disc is located and out to the arms or legs. Fortunately, chiropractic treatment with Dr. Julie Stewart and her associate here in Placentia often provides lasting relief for herniated discs.
