Herniated Disc Treatment
Many people experience lower back pain at one point or another throughout their lives. Herniated discs are a leading cause of both back pain and sciatica. At NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, we provide top-notch herniated disc treatment in Monmouth County, NJ, and surrounding areas. We are here to help relieve that pain through custom-designed chiropractic treatments and physical therapy plans.
Our team comprised of leading physical therapists, chiropractors, sports medicine doctors, surgeons, physician assistants, and acupuncturists will work with you to relieve symptoms from this condition.
A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like substance in your intervertebral discs, which act as cushions to absorb impact on your spine and allow a proper range of motion, ruptures through the fibrous layer or protrudes. This condition can occur to your discs by an injury to your spine or naturally when aging.
Some people can have herniated discs without even knowing. However, when their protruded discs press on a nerve, people can feel pain, weakness, and numbness. A herniated disc can occur in three regions along the spine:
- Lumbar spine (lower back)
- Thoracic spine (chest)
- Cervical spine (neck)
Herniated discs that occur in the lumbar region send pain down the back and through your legs. Having this condition in the cervical area of your body causes pain in the neck and the arms. Dealing with a herniated disc in the thoracic region can lead to upper back pain.
Options for herniated disc treatment include chiropractic adjustment/treatment, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine, and surgery. Physical therapy is a leading treatment option that includes a mix of different exercises that helps to decrease pain and relieve nerve pressure.
We do more than just develop effective herniated disc treatment options to help heal your condition; we also provide you with useful education.
