Diagnosing and Treating Herniated Discs

Diagnosing and Treating Herniated Discs at Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A. in Orlando, FL

Our chiropractor, here at Rumley Family Chiropractic P.A. in Orlando, FL can diagnose your herniated disc and provide you with natural treatment options that do not involve invasive procedures, like steroid injections and surgery.

The Anatomy of a Herniated Disc

Your discs reside between your vertebrae to help cushion them. They consist of a spongy or jelly-like middle and a tougher outer area. Through injury or ailment, like arthritis or degenerative joint disease, the outer part of the disc weakens, allowing the inner disc to bulge, which can put pressure on the surrounding soft tissues and nerve roots.

Chiropractic Care for Herniated Discs from our Chiropractor in Orlando

Our chiropractor in Orlando can design a treatment program that can help reduce your back pain and heal your disc herniation. A few of our treatment options include spinal adjustments, mechanical traction or spinal decompression and massage therapy.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments help restore the proper alignment of your vertebrae. When they are out of alignment, they can put pressure on your nerves and soft tissues, which can exasperate your pain.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression, also called mechanical traction, is designed to help heal your disc herniation by gently stretching your spine. This subtly increases the spaces between your vertebrae and gives your disc the extra room it needs to refill with fluid and retract.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy helps alleviate muscle pain while loosening tight muscles, ligaments and tendons. Massage is often combined with chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression in order to provide more complete pain relief.

During your treatment, we may also recommend certain lifestyle adjustments so that you do not reinjure your back or aggravate your healing disc. This could include giving you advice on how to perform every day tasks without putting extra stress on your back.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I got into a car accident. My first one ever in fact. I wasn't really sure where to turn or what to do, but I knew my back and neck were pretty messed up and I needed some help. I did a quick Google search and found exactly what I needed. The Rumley Family website was very professional appearing and they got back to me quickly. I started my treatment and felt like a part of the family from the get go. Treatment was consistent and they paid deep attention to where I actually hurt unlike some doctors that tell you what hurts when it doesn't. Im very satisfied and I would come back again"

  • ""They are very nice family and very generous"

    This year I recently got into a car accident with my boyfriend and we were referred to Rumley Family Chiropractic for treatment. They took great care of us each visit we went to and helped us get better over the months. They are a very nice family and very generous. We recommend this place better than any other place!"
