Slipped Disc

Slipped Disc

Spinal discs are soft tissues between vertebrae that act as shock absorbers for the spine. Although there is not much chance for these firmly-placed discs to move between vertebrae, a slipped disc occurs when the disc bulges and herniates, which causes a tremendous amount of pain in the back.

When a slipped disc happens, it releases a substance that causes the surrounding nerves and muscles to swell and become irritated, pushing painful symptoms out to other parts of the body. Slipped discs can be closely related to poor disc health, which can be caused by poor posture, lack of exercise, and inadequate nutrition. Mild cases of slipped disc may be treated by simply stretching and exercise.

Advanced cases may require other types of treatments, including decompression and other extensive procedures. However, before considering surgery, visit The Advanced Pain Relief Institute and consult with Dr. Jeffrey Wells, DC. to see if our treatments can help you recover from your slipped disc. Our treatments have helped thousands of people recover from slipped disc symptoms and pain by helping them relieve pressure on the nerves and allowing the body to heal naturally.
