Tulsa Disc Injury Chiropractor

LONGEVITY EFFECT

Longevity Effect is proud to serve as your local Tulsa disc injury chiropractor. For those who’ve suffered a disc injury, you can improve your pain symptoms through chiropractic treatment. Your spine comprises various vertebrae, joints, nerves, muscles, and soft tissue between vertebrae, also known as discs. These spinal discs protect your spine by absorbing shock, holding your vertebrae together, and are cartilaginous joints that allow for a slight mobility range. They help you to walk, lift with, and twist your spine daily. You have a total of 23 spinal discs, which, if injured, can cause various symptoms. 

 

When you damage a disc, the softer inner part of the disc can protrude through the disc’s outer ring. This is known as a slipped, herniated, or prolapsed disc. In addition to pain, a slipped disc can sometimes pinch or compress a nerve, which can cause you to feel numbness and pain. In some severe cases, you may need surgery to remove or repair the herniated disc. That’s why it can be essential to seek chiropractic treatment if you’ve suffered a disc injury.

What Causes Disc Injuries?

A slipped disc will occur when the disc’s outer ring becomes weak or torn and allows the inner portion to leak or slip out. Specific movements can cause you to slip a disc. For example, if you’re bending, twisting, or turning to lift an object, you can hurt yourself and end up with a herniated disc, especially if you’re lifting anything heavy or oversized. In addition, lifting can cause you to strain your lower back. If you have a physically demanding job or you happen to be lifting, ensure that you use proper lifting techniques, so you don’t increase your chances of injuring a disc. 

 

In addition to injuries, as you age, your spinal discs will deteriorate. This can sometimes be painful for some individuals. The process of degenerating can cause micromotion instability and inflammation of various nerves. If you’re overweight, you also increase your chances of disc injury. A sedentary lifestyle and weak muscles may also contribute.

Common Symptoms of Disc Injuries

You’re more likely to experience a slipped disc in your lower back. Symptoms of a herniated or slipped disc include:

  • Pain or numbness often experienced on one side of the body
  • Pain that extends to your extremities
  • Pain that worsens with specific movements or at night 
  • Pain that worsens after sitting or standing
  • Pain when walking short distances
  • Unexplained muscle weakness
  • Aching, tingling, or burning sensations in the affected area

The pain experienced when you slip a disc varies from each individual. Seeing a Tulsa disc injury chiropractor can help to maintain and treat your pain symptoms!
