The term “slipped disc” is often used to describe a lower back injury. At Spinal Care Clinics, we help people with slipped discs every day and we know how it can stop you doing what you love.
We know how it feels and we know how to help.
A slipped disc occurs when the circle of connective tissue surrounding the disc breaks down and begins to herniate and bulge out from between your bones. This allows the soft, gel-like part of the disc to swell and protrude out.

This can cause severe pain and irritating substances are being released from this tear an can cause severe pain, especially if the fragment touches or compresses a nearby nerve.
Slipped Discs can sometimes be caused by lifetsyle factor which reduce the strength and resilience of your discs and increase the risk of herniation. Some of the most common causes of slipped discs include:
Situations such as these can weaken the disc tissue and can sometimes lead to a slipped disc. If the disc is already weakened, it may herniate with a single movement or strain such as coughing or bending to pick up a light object.
We see slipped discs very regularly here at Spinal Care Clinics.
We can offer you a unique multi-dimensional approach to healing and wellness. This will tackle the different stresses which actually led you to pain, body dysfunction and ill-health.

Thankfully, the majority of disc herniations can be sufficiently treated with stretching exercises, sports massage therapy and chiropractic care. If you suffer from a more advanced case of disc herniation, you may require spinal decompression treatments, such as traction or mechanical decompression, which will subsequently be followed by prolonged chiropractic care. We can talk to you about this and we treat every case as individual.
