Disc bulge refers to the painful condition in which a disc protrudes outsides of the normal radius of the spine. Lately, chiropractic care has become a popular treatment for disc bulge as it has proven to be successful in alleviating the painful symptoms associated with a bulged disc. It is crucial to discuss with your health care practitioner the status of your bulging disc to ensure that chiropractic care is an option for your spine.

Benefits of Chiropractics for Disc Bulge

Seeing a chiropractor for a bulging disc treatment is beneficial to many patients for the following reasons:

  • It does not involve pills or injections;
  • It is non-invasive; and
  • It will help your body as a whole, not necessarily just the disc issue.

Your chiropractor will verify your bulging disc diagnosis, and will examine your symptoms and health history, along with testing your muscle tone, reflexes, and nerves. They may also require you go for radiography to confirm the exact issue.

Chiropractic Treatment of Disc Bulge

Your chiropractor will use a series of several procedures to treat your bulging disc. Treatments may include stretching of the spine to increase space between the vertebrae, which relieves pressure on compressed nerves, and may utilize gravity to balance your pelvis and spinal column using specifically arranged cushions for proper positioning.

Chiropractic care can be extremely beneficial as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for bulging disc pain, helping patients get back to their healthy life. If a bulging disc problem becomes chronic, surgery may become a consideration, especially if the pain persists through weeks or months of treatment with no relief.
