Disc Herniations & Disc Bulges
Pain Relief Partners treats a wide range of conditions including degenerative disc disease and discs that have herniated, slipped, bulged, or ruptured in Vancouver, Washington. This condition can affect the cervical spine (neck), thoracic spine (mid back), or lumbar spine (lower back). Providers at our clinic, Pain Relief Partners, located in Vancouver, Washington, are able to treat this condition with non-invasive therapies that provide optimal results for our patients. A herniated or ruptured disc is the term for when some of the soft, jelly-like center of a spinal disc pushes out through a fissure in the exterior of the disc. Disc herniation doesn’t always cause a problem, but for some people it results in intense pain, numbness or tingling, sciatica, or muscle weakness. Pain Relief Partners has helped many patients with herniated discs through stem cell therapy, trigger point injections, non-surgical spinal decompression, and chiropractic care.
Degenerative disc disease, or age-related disc degeneration, often contributes to disc herniation, though it can be difficult to identify the cause of a herniated disc. Disc herniation can be the result of the trauma of a fall or blow to the back or by something as simple as sneezing or improper lifting or bending. Overweight or middle-aged patients and patients who have physically demanding jobs that require bending, lifting, reaching, or carrying are at higher risk for disc degeneration.
In Vancouver, Washington patients suffering from a herniated disc can trust the medical professionals at Pain Relief Partners.
