Disc herniations are when your disc from between your vertebrae protrude out and pinch the nerves from your spinal cord. This usually occurs when your low back is flexing and twisting, such as when you lift something heavy and twist to set it down somewhere.
Treatments We Provide For Disc Herniations
To help with disc herniations we utilize chiropractic adjustments, rehab exercises (McKenzie Method), and flexion distraction. The treatment you'll receive is based on your symptoms. A combination of all of these is usually best for long term results.
