Herniated Disc

Relief from Herniated Disc Pain at Generations Chiropractic Wellness

If you've ever experienced back pain, you know how debilitating it can be. One common cause of back pain is a herniated disc, which can be painful and stop you from performing daily activities. Although, chiropractic care can help.


At Generations Chiropractic Wellness in Belvidere, IL, Dr. Sam is passionate about chiropractic care for patients of all ages. She utilizes techniques best suited to each patient and ensures that patients are good candidates for chiropractic adjustments before proceeding.

Understand the Complex Structure of the Spine

The spinal discs that cushion the vertebrae in our backs can degenerate over time, causing the nucleus to push out of the annulus and into the spinal canal. When this happens, the disc can press on spinal nerves, leading to severe pain and numbness. Additionally, the spinal cord runs through the vertebral spaces, providing nerve signals to the rest of the body.

Various factors can affect this delicate balance of moving and non-moving parts. For example, even minor joint imbalances, known as subluxations, can restrict joint movement, leading to neck or back pain.

Displaced or herniated discs can also compress nerve roots, resulting in neurological discomfort or limb muscle weakness. Also, an imbalanced spine can throw the rest of the body out of alignment, causing chronic discomfort and pain.

While herniated discs can occur anywhere along the spine, they are most common in the lumbar (lower back) region. However, they can also occur in the cervical (neck) region, causing pain and discomfort in the upper body.

Treat Herniated Discs with Chiropractic Care

A chiropractic adjustment can be a safe but effective way to treat herniated discs. Our chiropractor can alleviate pressure on the affected nerves by performing spinal adjustments and helping realign the spine. This alignment can lead to substantial relief from pain and discomfort, even in the immediate aftermath of treatment.
