What Causes Slipped Discs?

Back pain

Back pain can be your first sign of a slipped disc.

A nerve becomes irritated by pressure or swelling of disc material against the nerve. It can also result from a stretching of the nerve.

Your first sign would be back or neck pain.

  • With back pain, you might have pain, tingling, or numbness going down your legs.
  • With neck pain, you may experience pain, tingling or numbness in your arms.

These symptoms will help us to trace the cause of your issue.

What We Can Do

X-rays will be taken to determine whether decompression or stretching has caused your problem. We then work to target the specific cause leading to your pain through chiropractic care or therapies.

Could these symptoms be what you are experiencing? Call our office today to book an appointment.
