Have you ever known someone to complain of pain, numbness, or tingling in their back? Have you ever heard someone refer to a herniated disc or a pinched nerve? Herniated discs are a common cause of back pain, and often result in surgery, a very serious procedure. What many people do not know is that the surgery may be preventable. According to The Mayo Clinic: 

“Back pain is extremely common, and surgery often fails to relieve it,” and “Back surgery can help reduce some causes of back pain, but it’s rarely necessary.”

Imagine the relief of healing by natural means. No surgery, no drugs, no side effects and dramatically less expensive. Even when pain medication brings relief, they only cover the problem temporarily. Without fixing the cause, the pain almost always returns and the condition causing the pain worsens over time.

So, what is back pain? What is a herniated disc? What is a pinched nerve?

They’re symptoms. The body’s way of alerting us that something is wrong. Since back pain can prevent most daily activities, people often over-do it with pain medications which is dangerous because they’re highly addictive and in recent news have been leading people down a road of dependency. Pain is not the problem. It is the result. The actual problem begins with stress. To understand how, let’s have a quick anatomy lesson.

Between each vertebra is a disc and each of these discs are fluid filled. Their job is to provide spinal flexibility and act as shock absorbers. Chronic stress leads to an absorption of the disc’s fluid, which causes the disc to thin. This diminishing of fluid leads to degeneration of the disc. The road to spinal degeneration has now begun. When discs lose this fluid, arthritis develops, as does compression of nerves, and shooting paints can result.

What’s a herniated disc

A: When the spinal disc fluid hardens
B: When the spinal disc fluid leaks
C: When the spinal disc fluid becomes hot

The answer is B. A herniated disc occurs when the disc’s fluid has leaked through rips or tears in the disc. That fluid now puts pressure on and/or chemically irritates the nerves. It is often called a slipped disc, although the disc has not actually slipped. A spinal disc is susceptible to ripping when the disc becomes rigid, the result of uncorrected spinal subluxations. 

Subluxation? What’s that? A subluxation is a condition in which a spinal segment is out of alignment with the adjacent segment, and the nervous system no longer properly works. Where does a subluxation come from? Stress.

Stress comes in 3 main types: chemical, physical, and emotional.

What’s a pinched nerve? 

This is a term used to describe a compressed nerve. What does chiropractic have to do with this? Chiropractic adjustments do one thing that neither drugs nor surgery can ever do. They restore motion to the spine. Spinal discs depend entirely upon motion to receive their fluid and to stay plump. Herniated discs can be avoided naturally.
