A herniated disc is a painful condition affecting the spinal disc in the vertebrae. A spinal disc is much like a jelly donut. There is soft matter inside the disc, while the tough exterior encases and protects the softer matter, called the nucleus pulpolsus. A herniated disc occurs when some of the jelly, or nucleus pulpolsus, pushes out through the tough exterior and the leaked jelly puts pressure on the nerve of the spinal column, causing pain. A chiropractor who uses Spinal Decompression therapy helps relieve the pressure put on the nerve and helps bring the nucleus pulpolsus back to its original position. To find out if spinal decompression therapy is right for you, please call our Charlotte chiropractor today for a consultation.
