Welcome to Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center: Disc Problems

man with back painAt Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center, we understand that when it comes to your spine, knowledge is power. While there’s no such thing as a “slipped disc,” we want to provide you with valuable information about common disc problems such as herniation, protrusion, and prolapse. We also want to introduce you to the effective and natural solution that chiropractic care can offer for addressing these issues.


Understanding Disc Problems

Each spinal disc is a remarkable structure consisting of a jelly-like center surrounded and contained by bands of fibrous tissue. Healthy discs provide your spine with flexibility, allowing you to move, turn, and bend with ease. However, various factors like improper lifting, slips, falls, and car accidents can disrupt the balance within these discs, leading to the following problems:


Herniation occurs when the central portion of a spinal disc ruptures. This can result in intense pain and discomfort as the inner material pushes against surrounding nerves.


Protrusion is a common cause of back pain. It happens when a disc bulges at its weakest point, creating pressure on nearby nerves and causing pain, numbness, or tingling sensations.


A prolapsed disc involves a spinal disc escaping from between the vertebrae of the spine, potentially causing severe pain and affecting your ability to move comfortably.

Chiropractic Care: Your First Choice

Chiropractic care offers a remarkably effective and natural solution to address a variety of disc problems. Our drug-free approach focuses on improving joint mechanics, enhancing spinal motion, and reducing inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments can play a crucial role in your journey towards better spinal health.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does chiropractic help address disc problems?

Chiropractic adjustments may effectively help restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones. When addressed before permanent damage occurs, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape, alleviating pain and discomfort.

Aren’t disc problems simply due to the normal aging process?

No, disc problems are not solely a result of aging. However, many disc issues can develop over time due to neglect and poor spinal health. It’s important to note that individuals who maintain their spine throughout their lives can enjoy optimal spinal health and function well into their later years.

Could chiropractic help me avoid surgery?

Possibly. The effectiveness of chiropractic care depends on the severity of your disc condition. However, it’s a wise choice to explore chiropractic care as a natural and non-invasive option before considering surgical interventions.
