Herniated Disc Treatment in Carrollwood FL
Have you been diagnosed with a herniated disc or bulging disc? Our unique approach will help.
A herniated disc, also known as a bulging disc, slipped or ruptured disc, is a condition that affects the spine, causing a range of symptoms from mild discomfort to severe pain. The spine is made up of a series of bones called vertebrae, separated by intervertebral discs. These discs act as cushions, providing flexibility and shock absorption. A herniated disc occurs when the soft, gel-like center of a disc protrudes through a tear in its tough, outer layer. This protrusion can irritate nearby nerves, leading to symptoms like pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area, which can extend to the arms or legs depending on the location of the herniated disc. While herniated discs can happen in any part of the spine, they are most common in the lower back (lumbar) and neck (cervical) regions.
What Causes a Herniated Disc?
Various factors contribute to the development of a herniated disc. Aging is a primary risk factor, as discs naturally degenerate over time, losing their flexibility and becoming more prone to tearing. Other factors include obesity, heavy lifting, and traumatic injury.
Fixing a Herniated Disc
Dr. Jacob Goldberg is Carrollwood’s expert chiropractor when it comes to addressing a herniated or bulging disc. The root of the problem, which is a compressed disc, requires vertebrae to be pulled apart to alleviate pain on the delicate nerves. Dr. Jacob Goldberg addresses this through lumbar extension traction therapy — a painless and therapeutic process that gently and effectively reduces stress on the disc allowing patients to experience significant pain relief.
While some doctors and back specialists in Carrollwood and Tampa are quick to recommend spine surgery for a herniated disc, patients are urged to take a closer look at corrective chiropractic care. In most cases, our patients who were told they needed surgery were able to have their herniated discs repaired naturally without any surgical intervention at all.
