Slipped Disc

Discs are the soft but strong cushions that separate the vertebrae in your spine and absorb shock as you move. Repeated strain over time or a sudden forceful movement like bending, lifting, and twisting, can damage discs. This damage can irritate nerves causing pain, numbness, or tingling in your back, legs, neck, and arms.

Your treatment depends on the nature of your disc problem. Gentle spinal adjustments can improve range of motion and relieve irritated nerves. Additional treatment may include ice or heat, massage, electrical stimulation, traction and ultrasound.
