Herniated Disc

Herniated Disc Treatment at Chiro Idaho Chiropractic

A herniated disc can cause debilitating pain that impacts your day-to-day life if left untreated. This condition occurs when the soft inner gel of the disc pushes out through a weak spot in the exterior, causing back pain, numbness, and weakness in the arms or legs. Fortunately, your chiropractor near you at Chiro Idaho Chiropractic in Meridian, ID, offers holistic and non-invasive herniated disc treatment to help you feel like yourself again. Learn more about herniated discs and how chiropractic care can help them below.

What Causes a Herniated Disc?

The most frequent cause of herniated discs is general wear and tear due to aging. Your discs become less flexible and more prone to tearing as you age. Repeated straining or lifting can also weaken the outer layer of your disc. Twisting or bending forcefully can then cause the inner portion to bulge or rupture. Weak core muscles also contribute to herniated discs. Since the spine receives less support from weakened muscles, your discs are more likely to herniate. Genetics, smoking, and being overweight also increase your risk of herniation.

Our Herniated Disc Treatment Approach

Our chiropractor will first perform a physical exam and review your medical history to determine the underlying cause of your herniated disc. Once they identify the culprit, our chiropractor will create a customized herniated disc treatment plan tailored to your needs and preferences. This plan may include:

  • Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy*
  • Spinal adjustments to improve mobility and realign vertebrae
  • Targeted exercises to strengthen core muscles for added support
  • Deep tissue laser therapy to stimulate healing

*Non-surgical spinal decompression uses controlled, gradual force to gently stretch the spine. Doing this creates a vacuum effect within the disc to draw the bulging portion back inward and relieve pressure on the nerve.
