Millions of Americans suffer from herniated or pinched discs. Our lifestyles promote poor posture and frequent sitting, which puts unneeded pressure on our spinal discs. The good news, however, is that you don’t have to suffer with disc pain. Quality Life Chiropractic & Massage in Rochester, MN, specializes in improving issues with your discs. We have helped thousands of patients get their lives back and relieve pain in their back and spine.

What Is Disc Pain and Why Does It Occur?

Disc pain, a type of back pain, originates anywhere along the spine. Patients suffering from disc pain often report a tingling sensation. Others may feel numbness in their back, or a sharp pain depending on how severe the condition is. It is important to note that disc pain is skeletal in nature rather than muscular, meaning that it has to do with your spine.

In some cases, the pain you feel in your spine could be a result of a herniated disc. This is when a part of the nucleus of a spinal disc pushes through a tear in your annulus. The annulus is the exterior section of your spine. When this occurs, it can put pressure on the nerves in your spine and cause numbness or stinging pain. A lot of patients report pain or numbness in the arms or legs as well.

While disc pain can happen naturally with age or lifestyle, it is often found in individuals who use their back for work or sports. Those who slouch frequently or have poor posture have a greater risk of developing disc pain at some point in their lives.

Can Chiropractors Treat Disc Pain?

Yes! Seeking chiropractic care for disc pain is an excellent first step to improving your condition. If left untreated, disc issues can be seriously debilitating. Not only can they cause life-altering pain, but they can limit your mobility by preventing you from moving in certain ways. That is why you should seek an experienced chiropractor to evaluate your condition.

A visit with Dr. Suntken and Dr. Zett begins with a consult and an evaluation of your spine. This will include questions about your daily lifestyle and a possible referral for imaging to determine the best course of treatment for your disc issue. We then perform a series of spinal adjustments to help realign your spine.

The goal is to move your disc back into place without the use of painkillers or surgery. Many patients report that their conditions improve after just a few adjustments, while others notice they are back to normal after a few short months.
