There are many causes of herniated discs

Common causes of a herniated disc can include poor posture, excessive amounts of weightlifting, or traumatic injury. Over time, people with repeated trunk flexion activity can suffer from herniated discs as lumbar muscles weaken and cannot support these activities. A chiropractor may help reduce pressure on disc tissue in the spine by implement manipulative techniques to detect misalignment, realigning joints and vertebrae for even distribution. Additionally, massage therapy can accelerate healing for those that suffer from herniated discs by increasing circulation to affected areas and providing stability to weak muscle groups in surrounding areas. For optimal results, it is important to find a licensed physiotherapist or chiropractic professional who utilizes appropriate techniques in order to treat a herniated disc properly.

What are herniated discs?

A herniated disc is an injury often caused by overexertion or continuous strain on the spine. It occurs when a disc’s spongy-like cushioning, which sits between vertebrae, weakens and the gelatinous nucleus in the middle of the disc bulges outwards. This can then cause pressure to be placed on nearby nerves, ultimately resulting in pain, muscle weakness, numbness or tingling depending on the affected area. In some cases it can also lead to issues such as difficulty walking and maintaining steady balance due to muscle weakness.

What are the symptoms of herniated discs?

Herniated discs can cause a range of different symptoms, depending on the severity of the injury. Depending on where the herniation occurs and how it affects surrounding nerves, patients may experience anything from mild pain in the affected area to more severe pain radiating through the extremities. Symptoms can also include numbness and tingling in parts of the body related to nerve compression caused by the herniation. Muscle weakness or spasms may also occur due to pressure on the nerve root which can interfere with normal muscle control functions. Finally, some patients with herniated discs have reported changes in bladder or bowel function due to pressure on areas near spinal cord components that affect these activities.
