Have You Injured a Disc?

chiropractic care for disc injuries

Have you been told that you have a slipped disc or a disc injury in Lexington? Injured discs can vary from ever so slight to severe. Most disc problems require the attention of a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Nemastil at LifeStyle Chiropractic can help you understand your condition, and also discuss with you your best treatment option(s).


Disc Injury Lexington

The cartilage pads that lie between your vertebrae are called the intervertebral discs. Each of these discs has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. These discs serve as a cushions or shock absorbers, so that the bones don’t make contact with each other as you move.

If you've been diagnosed with a protruding disc, it means that the disc fibers have become weak or injured in an area and an area of the disc is "bulging". This may result in pinching and irritation of the adjacent nerve root.

A herniated disc happens when the inner jelly-like disc material ruptures through the outer disc material. This is typically a worse situation that a bulge or protrusion, and can cause extreme back pain and even leg pain and numbness.

A disc extrusion is the worst type of disc injury. An extrusion is when the inner disc gel balloons extensively into the area outside the vertebra or breaks off from the disc. This tends to result in considerable back pain and limitation of range of motion.

If you think you're suffering from a disc injury in Lexington, call our team at LifeStyle Chiropractic today. We typically have same-day appointments. Dr. Nemastil has over 20 years experience helping folks with disc problems.

"Dr. Mike examined me for back pain. He discovered an aortic aneurysm that required emergency surgery. I'm alive and well thanks to Dr. Mike's expertise!"

Arnold M.

"I landed hard on the garage floor and the fall left me unable to straighten up. I called this office and the staff were so nice. They got me right in that day and Dr. Mike was super about getting me back to where I could walk again."

Lucy

"Dr. Mike took x-rays to see what was going on and was able to determine the cause of my pain. He started treating me the same day and I was able to sleep that night. Today after my follow up appointment I am much improved."
