Disc Herniation Treatment

NeuroStructural Chiropractic care is a gentle, conservative, non-invasive treatment for correcting the discomfort and dysfunction associated with herniated spinal discs. A herniated spinal disc occurs when the disc material located between spinal vertebrae protrudes outside of the spine’s normal radius.

This phenomenon may occur as a result of aging and spinal degeneration, physical activity, injury or structural misalignment. Because spinal discs provide cushioning and shock absorption between spinal vertebrae, compromised disc material often results in pain, numbness, tingling, mobility loss and limited range of motion.

At Revolution Chiropractic, we address herniated spinal discs by locating and correcting the underlying source of spinal dysfunction: structural misalignment of the Neuro-spinal and musculoskeletal system. At our Miami, Queensland clinic, Dr. Mark Illguth’s goal is to progressively correct misalignments, reestablish normal disc positioning, alleviate discomfort and restore normal functioning.

What to Expect With Disc Herniation Treatment

NeuroStructural Chiropractic disc herniation treatment uses a variety of techniques to gradually bring the spine back into proper alignment, bringing pain relief and restoring normal system functioning. At Revolution Chiropractic, we perform a full neurostructural examination to locate and correct the root of the problem so that we can provide you with long-term structural improvement and lasting relief.

Your initial examination will involve a full physical examination, including a series of digital structural x-rays, which allows us to locate existing structural abnormalities, plus an extensive NeuroFunctional assessment analysising the effects of the dysfunction so that we are able to objectively monitor your progress. We’ll also discuss your current symptoms, medical history, lifestyle habits and daily practices to provide the most comprehensive diagnosis possible. After we’ve gathered and assessed all necessary information, we’ll formulate a customized treatment plan designed to progressively correct the structure of your spine.

Due to the delicate nature of herniated spinal discs, treatments at Revolution Chiropractic are gentle and conservative in nature. During ongoing treatments, the doctor will perform routine analysis of your spine, make progressive corrections and perform rehabilitation routines to restore normal functioning.

Health Benefits of Disc Herniation Treatment

Corrective chiropractic care addresses disc herniations by progressively correcting structural misalignment of the spine. As we gently bring the spine and musculoskeletal system back into proper alignment, we relieve the discomfort associated with protruding spinal discs and restore normal functioning. If you believe you’re suffering from pain or limited mobility as a result of spinal disc herniation, chiropractic care offers the following benefits:

Pain Relief
When disc material protrudes outside the confines of a spinal disc, it can place pressure on the surrounding nerves that stem from the spine. This pressure puts stress on the nerves, resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness. As we gently and gradually bring vertebrae and spinal discs back into appropriate alignment, we relieve pressure on surrounding nerves. As a result you’ll experience relief from the pain, tingling, and numbness associated with herniated spinal discs.

Improved Mobility
When disc material protrudes outside of its normal location within the spinal disc, it compresses the nerve roots which stem from the spine. In most patients, this compression results in substantial discomfort that can drastically reduce mobility. As we progressively correct the structure of the spine and surrounding musculature, we relieve pressure on compromised nerve roots, which brings significant relief. When movement is no longer painful, patients often experience dramatic improvements in mobility.

Improved Nerve Signaling
When any of the nerves that stem from your spinal cord are compromised, they cannot transmit signals from the spinal cord effectively. Often, this phenomenon compromises the functionality of other systems throughout the body. As we gradually correct abnormal structural shifts and restore normal disc positioning, we relieve pressure on compromised nerves, which reestablishes normal nerve function.

What Conditions Can Benefit from Disc Herniation Treatment?

A variety of painful conditions and secondary symptoms can benefit from chiropractic disc herniation treatment, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Nmbness in the extremities
  • Weakness in the legs or arms
  • Pain in the extremities
  • Loss of mobility
  • Pain with movement

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend taking a brief, five- to 10-minute walk after each treatment to solidify your adjustment and allow the brain and body to integrate the changes that have just been made. We recommend avoiding strenuous physical activity as it can quickly compromise your recent adjustment. Your doctor may also provide you with exercises and stretches that you can perform at home to strengthen your musculoskeletal system, improve mobility and expedite healing.

Typically, disc herniation treatment does not generate discomfort. During treatment, you may feel slight pressure, but it is generally not uncomfortable. After treatment, you may feel increased awareness of your spine and surrounding musculature, and we often liken this process to visiting the gym after a period of inactivity. As your body gradually adjusts to the new changes and progressively improves, you’ll become less aware of the changes after treatment.
