Back Pain and Disc Injuries

Whether it’s a result of a labor-intensive job, pregnancy, a wrong move at the gym, or even just discomfort after a long day of working around the house, back pain is one of the first and most important signs signifying a problem that needs attention.

Dr. Jodi Kinney at Intrinsic Chiropractic Center offers a therapy system that manipulates joints to fix pressure and tension issues.  An adjustment is often quick, pain-free, non-invasive, and does not involve medications.  After the adjustment, many patients report feeling better than they had before they even had the back ailment.  Your individual care plan will address your unique issues and will lead you to the best solution for back pain.

We also Help With Slipped Discs

A slipped, or prolapsed, is a medical conditions affecting the spine that can cause severe lower back pain.  The bone that makes up the spine - the vertebrae - have cartilage discs between them, connected by a gel-like tissue.  A slipped disc is cause when the soft part of the disc bulges through the circle of the connective tissue.  The disc does not actually slip out of place, but rather it bulges, causing a push on the spinal cord. 

A slipped disc can many times be symptom-free.  However, when pain does occur, it is due to the pressure placed on the spinal cord or nerve roots.  This type of pressure can result in feeling muscle spasm, paralyzed muscles, disturbed feelings in the limbs, and problems controlling the bladder.  

How Chiropractic Can Help Slipped Discs

Dr. Jodi Kinney will develop a care plan that may include spinal manipulation and other chiropractic techniques to ease the slipped disc symptoms.  Adjustments to remove subluxation (when one or more of the bones in your spine move out of position) are also helpful for a slipped disc.  The adjustments decompress the vertebrae, allowing the disc the ability to heal itself.
