Disc disorders, such as degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc, can occur due to degeneration in the discs in the spine. The discs act as a natural cushion between the vertebrae and provide the flexibility that is needed for the spine to twist and bend without the vertebrae contacting each other. When the spinal discs begin to wear or break down, you may experience pain and have limited mobility. At Rainer Sports and Spinal Rehab in Puyallup, WA, we offer treatment that can help alleviate your discomfort and improve your overall health.
Conditions and Treatment
In many cases, disc degeneration develops after many years of movement and work. However, in rare cases, the condition can progress at a young age and may result in the need for spine support or a brace while a child or teen is still developing. Adults may usually notice disc degeneration due to a herniated disc or a bulging disc. These conditions can cause intense pain, which can temporarily be relieved with medicine or a warm and cold compress, however, the pain can often return and you may still have reduced mobility.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor’s approach focuses on helping the body heal, which improves disc function, the condition of the spine, increases mobility, and reduces pain. However, in the case of advanced disc degeneration, we help our patients feel as comfortable as possible. When you visit us, we will perform a thorough evaluation to learn more about your condition and determine the treatment that may be necessary.
