Our Austin Auto Accident Chiropractor Discusses Herniated Discs

The discs in your spine exist in the spaces between the vertebrae. These small, fluid-filled sacs absorb impact and reduce friction between your vertebrae when you bend, twist, reach, sit and stand. The discs lose pliability with age and your genes may also contribute to your risk of disc herniation. Occasionally, the discs may leak out of their natural position and are referred to as herniated or bulging discs. When the disc leaks, it interferes with the nerves that exit the spaces between the vertebrae. This interruption causes pain and discomfort. You may also experience limited range of motion, swelling, muscle weakness, tingling or numbness in your arms and legs. Some reasons for herniated discs include:

  • degenerating discs- typically related to aging, the discs compress and may slip out of their space
  • sudden strain- lifting a heavy object while using your back instead of your legs 
  • auto accident- impact from a collision may cause the disc to herniate
  • other injuries- work-related strain or overuse or a sports injury may end in a disc herniation

Chiropractic Care for Herniated Discs

Dr. Roy A Logan examines your condition to determine the most beneficial approach. Manual chiropractic adjustments gently position your vertebrae to increase the space between them. This eases the pressure on the discs to reduce your pain. The more space between the vertebrae, the easier the discs will return to their natural position. Our care for herniated discs extends into your lifestyle as well. We educate you on the importance of weight maintenance to lessen your chances of spinal strain which may lead to a herniated disc. We show you exercises to increase your core strength, lead to weight loss and improve your overall health. Our health team also shows you better lifting techniques to protect your back from further strain. We teach you the advantages of arranging your workstation to support proper posture and keep your back in alignment. We also encourage massage therapy to reduce muscle tension which may be pulling on your spine.
