Slipped Disk

A disk will either bulge or herniate. A bulge is when the inner fibers of the outer portion of the disc tear, allowing the inner material to cause a bulge, kind of like a bad tire. A herniation is when the inner and outer fibers of the outer portion of the disk tear, allowing the inner material to actually "leak" out.  A herniation is worse but often they both cause the same symptoms...back pain, leg and buttock pain, numbness, weakness are the most common. In order to fully diagnose a disk condition, an MRI is a must.  The MRI is definitive in giving us the most accurate picture of what is going on.

Chiropractic has been a natural solution helping people with a variety of disc problems.
