Frequently Asked Questions and Answers from Our West Boca Raton Chiropractor

Back pain and associated symptoms may be caused by a slipped or herniated disc. Our chiropractor can evaluate your spine and determine the root cause of your pain in order to alleviate your pain for the long-term. Below are a few commonly fielded questions about slipped discs:


What is a slipped disc?

The terms "slipped disc," herniated disc" and "bulging disc" all refer to the shifting of part of a vertebral disc out of its proper position within the spinal column. The disc wall may balloon out on one side, or a tear in the disc lining can cause just the inner cartilage material to protrude.


Why do discs slip in the first place?

This condition commonly accompanies a traumatic accident that jolts or compresses the spinal column. Auto accidents, for instance, often cause disc bulges and herniation by throwing the vertebrae out of alignment. Other cases may occur due to chronic degenerative spinal ailment such as facet joint arthritis. The aging process alone can allow discs to lose their cushioning ability and flatten out, pressing on nearby nerves.


What symptoms would a herniated disc cause?

You may have a disc problem for years without experiencing any symptoms, or you may experience acute symptoms instantly. These symptoms typically include pain in the neck or lower back and pain or other odd sensations in the limbs, hand or feet. Patients may also experience numbness or muscle weakness in the extremities.


What kind of treatment do I need?

It depends on the precise nature of your disc condition, and we can obtain that information only through a careful examination. The good news is that many patients can resolve their pain and other symptoms through conservative, non-surgical treatment. One method that we have enjoyed particular success with is the Cox technique, in which we use a device called an activator to make tiny, gentle spinal adjustments as needed.
