Disc Problems in Butler

man with painful back painDid you know that chiropractic is a remarkably effective and natural solution that can address various disc problems? Not only has Dr. Brian helped patients with disc issues, but he’s also experienced the positive effects of care.

“I can empathize with patients suffering from disc-related low back pain. I have successfully managed my own herniated disc condition through chiropractic care for years,” said Dr. Brian. He understands the impact that back pain can have on your daily life, as it often can be debilitating.

What Are Common Issues?

Improper lifting, slips, falls, and auto accidents can cause the core to shift, and the following disc issues to arise:

Herniation – This occurs when the central portion of the disc ruptures.

Protrusion – A common cause of back pain, protrusion is when the disc bulges where it is the weakest, resulting in pressure to nearby nerves.

Prolapse – A prolapsed disc involves a spinal disc escaping from between the vertebrae of the spine.

How Chiropractic Could Help You

If you’re suffering from a disc problem, drug-free chiropractic care can help improve joint mechanics by improving spinal motion and reducing inflammation.

Dr. Brian will help you better understand your disc problem. He then provides treatment and tools to manage your pain and maximize your quality of life. Our chiropractor uses light force, low impact techniques combined with therapy, mobilization, and core strengthening to get you the best possible results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does chiropractic help address disc problems?

Chiropractic adjustments can effectively restore proper motion and position of spinal bones that aren’t functioning properly. If addressed before permanent damage, disc tissue often returns to a more normal size and shape.

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

No. However, many such problems are due to years of neglect. Many people with spinal problems won’t experience symptoms until they’re in an advanced stage of degeneration. The good news is that many elderly individuals who have maintained their spine throughout their lives still enjoy maximum spinal health and function.

Could chiropractic help me avoid surgery?

Possibly, but it depends on how severe your disc condition is. We always recommend starting with chiropractic first, as it’s natural and non-invasive.

When should I start to feel better?

We find that most patients notice improvement within the first two weeks.
