There are many causes of lumbar disc herniation

Disc herniation of the lumbar spine is an often debilitating condition caused by various factors related to wear and tear on the discs of the lower back. These can include degeneration due to aging, trauma to these discs, decreased blood supply, or a combination of all three. Treatment for disc herniation may be recommended by chiropractors, physiotherapists, and massage therapists to reduce pain and inflammation. Physical exercises such as stretching and strengthening can also be beneficial in treating this condition.

Lumbar disc herniation is a condition caused by the displacement of the soft nucleus, or spongy center, of a spinal disc located in the lumbar region of the back. Depending on the size and location of herniation, this can result in sciatica—pain, weakness, or numbness that radiates down one or both legs.

Common symptoms of lumbar disc herniation include pain or numbness radiating down one or both legs, muscular weakness in the area of the affected nerve root, difficulty walking or standing, localized pain when sitting for long periods of time, and shooting pains when changing positions. These symptoms vary between individuals based on the location of the herniated disc, as well as its size and content.

Treatment for lumbar disc herniation is typically non-invasive. Most people experience noticeable improvement with chiropractic spinal manipulation, physiotherapy and massage therapy. Adjustments of the spine often exceeds pain relief levels as chiropractors collaborate with the patient to optimize movement and posture. Physiotherapy modifications to both activities of daily life and recreational activities help speed recovery. Massage therapy is generally used for soothing soreness of the deep muscles, ligaments and bursae which are subject to strain when a disc case is present.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
