Common disc injury is a small crack or micro tear in the outer cartilage of the disc called annular fibers. This allows the fluid to start leaking out and the disc starts to wear thin.
The most common misconception is a disc slip. But in actuality a disc cannot slip but they can bulge, herniate, prolaspe and dessicate.
A soft jelly-like material in the middle of the disc pushes side-to-side and swelling occurs and can cause pressure and painful symptoms.
While results cannot be guaranteed many clients have avoided surgery and pain medication by choosing chiropractic care for the healing process.
