Dealing with Disc Pain in Metairie, LA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Disc Pain

If you have lower back pain that keeps coming back, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, it could be an indication that you have a slipped disc.
Also known as a herniated disc, the pain triggered by this condition can be extreme and in many cases debilitating.

Pain Triggered By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. In some cases, symptoms will die down in 6 weeks or less. This is the case in about 90% of herniated disc occurrences.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps recurring over a period of several months or years, this could be a sign that it may not go away by itself. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Causes Discs to Slip?

Your spine is composed of a chain of bones known as the vertebrae. The front section of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, named the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what allow the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body back and forth. Our discs also soak up impacts that are transferred to the spine while running or jumping, for example,.

When you have a slipped disc, it means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it. There are three types of slipped discs:.

  • Prolapsed Disc – This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still whole.
  • Extruding Disc – This means there is a rip in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. But the tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration – This is the most serious type of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly attached to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs may be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

If you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc, you should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals.

Left worse then when I entered. First visit in extreme pain, unable to stand or sit normally. Was adjusted and pain... increased to the point I required an ice treatment just so I could leave. MRI ordered same day, the MRI facility instructed me to return when pain free. After two weeks of medication and bed rest, scheduled 2nd visit for adjustment. Adjstment was refused. Why? Because of my level of pain. Charged full visit. They adjusted me when in debiliating pain without MRI (1st visit) but would not without MRI with constant ache level pain(2nd visit). Looking for another chiropractor Pain reduced to a constant ache and I regained full mobility. I was told they would not adjust me until MRI completed.read more

For almost a year, I've gone to this Chiropractic Center for neck and back pain. During my last and final service, my... unmasked provider coughed near me in the small, enclosed room. I immediately opened my eyes and pulled away from the provider and blurted out, "Did you just cough on me?" Then I heard, "if you are uncomfortable, you can leave." This was repeated to me several times. I asked the provider for a moment. I felt so bad, because of how upset I thought the provider was, that I apologized and continued the service. Now it's a week later and I have a sore throat and a cough.read more
