Are you experiencing low back pain? If so and you live in Frankfort, low back pain help is closer than you think. Our Illinois chiropractor treats people in town and surrounding areas, and always brings you the highest quality of natural, holistic care. If you’re looking for a safe, non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical answer to your back pain or bulging disc, we’re here to help.
Between each of the bones in your vertebrae sits a little round, jelly-filled sac. This sac, or disc, cushions your vertebrae, keeping them mobile and preventing them from rubbing against one another. When your discs are healthy and working properly, your spine is functional and pain-free (assuming no other causes of pain, of course). But when your discs get injured, the results can be excruciating.
Sometimes a disc gets damaged. This can happen from a car accident or other traumatic injury, from a chronic use injury (such as lifting or sitting), or as the result of a degenerative disease or simple aging. Whatever the case, when the outer casing of the disc is ruptured, some of the inner fluid can leak out. When it does, it presses on nerves, muscles, connective tissues and other structures in your spine and surrounding areas, causing pain and other symptoms.
Aside from pain ranging from mild to excruciating, a bulging or herniated disc can cause symptoms such as:
… and even headaches, if the disc is located toward the top of the spine rather than the lower part.
The goal of chiropractic care is to put your spine back in alignment and relieve pressure on the bulging disc. Treatments such as manual adjustments or spinal decompression take some of the pressure off of the disc, allowing it to resorb the jelly-like filling and perform its job once more. Our treatments may also be tailored toward limiting pain, physical therapy to help you heal at home and more.
