Disc injuries are a serious concern which you should seek immediate treatment for from Regenerate Chiropractic.
Herniation’s of spinal discs are very common in day to day life and both at work and on the sporting field. A herniated disc will occur more often when the spinal column is stressed in forward flexion and rotation, tearing the outer fibres of the disc, causing the central nucleus to protrude into the outer wall causing a ‘’protrusion or bulge’’. This protrusion will then possibly touch or compress the spinal nerve root and or the spinal cord producing moderate to severe pain with or without radiation into the lower limbs. The degree of protrusion will determine the severity of the condition.
