Understanding Disc Problems

In Montgomery, New York, Cornerstone Chiropractic offers comprehensive care for individuals struggling with disc issues. While the term “slipped disc” is a misnomer, conditions like bulging, protruding, and herniated discs can significantly impact your quality of life.

Types of Disc Problems:

  • Herniation: Occurs when the central portion of the disc ruptures.
  • Protrusion: Results in bulging of the disc, often exerting pressure on nearby nerves.
  • Prolapse: Involves a disc escaping from between the vertebrae of the spine.

Chiropractic First Approach

Chiropractic care stands as a natural and effective solution for addressing various disc problems. By focusing on restoring proper joint mechanics, improving spinal motion, and reducing inflammation without the use of drugs, chiropractic treatment offers relief and promotes healing.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does chiropractic help address disc problems?

Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones, often leading to the return of disc tissue to a more normal size and shape, especially if addressed before permanent damage occurs.

Are disc problems simply due to aging?

While aging can contribute to disc issues, many are a result of years of neglect. Optimal spinal health and function can be maintained throughout life with proper care.

Could chiropractic help me avoid surgery?

Chiropractic care offers a natural and non-invasive approach to addressing disc conditions, potentially helping patients avoid surgery, depending on the severity of their condition.

What types of techniques do you find successful for treating disc problems?

At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we often employ Cox-flexion distraction technique to effectively treat disc problems.

How long until patients typically notice relief?

Relief can often be noticed quite quickly, although it may vary from patient to patient initially.

How does spinal decompression help address disk problems?

Spinal decompression techniques, such as Cox flexion distraction, promote healing by facilitating a pumping motion called imbibition, which helps to maintain disc health and heal herniated discs naturally.

How does AllCore help?

AllCore is not a technique we utilize at Cornerstone Chiropractic.

How does laser therapy help me heal?

Laser therapy provides temporary relief by stimulating healing in injured soft tissues through deep-tissue lasers. While it may relax tight muscles, it does not directly heal the disc.
