Treatment of Disc Problems in Gold Coast

Reviewing xraysAt Gold Coast Chiropractic Centre, we understand how disc issues can disrupt your everyday life with pain and discomfort, and our goal is to provide you with natural care options to help provide relief and restore your mobility.

Your Spine, Vertebrae, and Disc Problems

Your spine is a complex structure made of vertebrae separated by intervertebral discs, which act as shock absorbers and allow for flexible movement. However, when these discs become damaged, they can cause significant discomfort. Common disc problems include herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease.

Recognising the Symptoms

Disc problems can manifest in various ways, including persistent pain in the back or neck, radiating pain to the arms or legs, tingling or numbness in the limbs, muscle weakness, and difficulty moving due to pain.

Disc problems can stem from various factors like

  • Aging
  • Injury from accidents or lifting
  • Poor posture
  • Obesity
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Our Diagnostic Approach

    There are three types of disc issues: herniation – when the central portion of the disc ruptures; protrusion – a common cause of back pain, where the disc bulges at its weakest point, putting pressure on nearby nerves; and prolapse – involves a spinal disc escaping from between the vertebrae.

    We offer a holistic approach to managing and addressing disc problems. Our cares are personalised to your needs, focusing on relieving pain, restoring function, and preventing further injury through chiropractic adjustments. These spinal manipulations help realign your spine, improve mobility, and reduce pain.

    Our chiropractors also provide advice on lifestyle modifications, postural corrections, and exercise recommendations for faster recovery and future prevention. We offer ergonomic advice to improve your work or home environment and reduce strain on your spine.

    How Chiropractic May Help

    Chiropractic care is a remarkably beneficial and natural solution to address various disc problems. Drug-free chiropractic care helps improve joint mechanics by enhancing spinal motion and reducing inflammation.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How does chiropractic help address disc problems?

    Chiropractic adjustments help restore proper motion and position of malfunctioning spinal bones. If addressed early, disc tissue can often return to a more normal size and shape.

    Aren’t disc problems simply due to the normal aging process?

    No. Many disc problems result from years of neglect, and people often don’t experience symptoms until they’re in an advanced stage of degeneration. Many seniors have maintained their spine throughout their lives and still enjoy optimal spinal health and function.

    Could chiropractic help me avoid surgery?

    Possibly. It depends on the severity of your disc conditions. It’s a good idea to start with chiropractic first, as it’s natural and non-invasive.
