Slipped Disc Relief

At The Chiro Lab , we offer a holistic approach to care that may help alleviate the pain and dysfunction associated with bulging discs.

Disc Injury Pain

Spinal discs are spongy, fluid-filled discs that act as cushions or shock absorbers between the vertebrae of your spine. Through trauma, wear and tear or simply the effects of gravity, a disc may become compressed, which causes the fluid filling to bulge, much like when you squeeze a water balloon.

Many people have disc injuries and don’t even know it, because they aren’t causing any pain. But when the disc protrusion presses on nearby nerves, it can result in nerve pain, numbness or muscle weakness anywhere in the body that the compressed nerve runs to.

Disc injuries may heal on their own, although it may take some time for them to resolve.

Our Approach

Our chiropractor, Bentley Woon, will conduct a thorough examination to determine the underlying cause of your pain or dysfunction. He’ll design a customised care plan to correct any spinal alignment issues that may be contributing to your disc herniation. Your care plan may also include soft tissue therapies and rehab exercises, which can stimulate blood flow to the affected area, promoting healing.

Danger Signs

In some cases, disc injuries can press on the spinal cord itself, causing serious symptoms that require immediate medical attention. These symptoms include

  • Severe weakness or loss of muscle control
  • Tingling or numbness between your legs or around your groyne or anus
  • Bowel or bladder dysfunction
  • Altered sexual sensation
