Bulges right through to disc prolpase. Your Chiropractic disc bulge solution begins at Transitions Chiropractic.
What is a disc injury?
This might sound a little simple. Yet discs are the soft, connective tissue between the vertebrae or bones of the spine. The connection of two vertebrae (the one above & the one below) together with the disc form what is known as the vertebral complex. The discs act as shock absorbers in this complex and their ability to shock absorb is finite. If the vertebrae are misaligned, pressure builds up on the disc weakening it and predisposing it to bulge.
The instant the bulge occurs may be the result of an acute injury ie when lifting and twisting, or a car accident or at the gym. It may also be caused due to repeated chronic overuse for example in the runner, desk worker or labourer constantly exposing their discs to the same stressors day in day out.
The extent of the damage is often graded with simple, outer disc bulges requiring less treatment and time off compared to complex disc prolpases or sequestered disc lesions.
What can you do?
Self care is the first and often best place to start any style of treatment. When it comes to Self care of a disc bulge there’s a few things to consider. Have a look into P.E.A.C.E & L.O.V.E. These are the guidelines for helping all injuries recover.
You’ll notice heat and movement is a big part of all of this. Try some of these simple mobility exercises and stretches and see if they help too.
