Herniations, Bulges and More
A disc herniates when a portion of the inner disc(nucleus pulposa) breaks through the outer cartilage. Most individuals may not realize they have herniated disc until the onset of pain. Unless a patient had a trauma, herniated discs occur because of overuse and not maintaining a spine for years.
A disc bulges when a portion of the entire disc presses outwards. Most often this will not cause pain, however the disc is weakened and left untreated, it will worsen over time.
If you have already been diagnosed with a herniated, bulging or degenerative disc, do not wait. The disc continues to breakdown without specialized Chiropractic care. Dr. Harris and his staff are leaders in identifying and preventing further damage to the discs with Chiropractic treatment and without the use of drugs or surgery.
