When too much stress is placed on your spine, the chances that a protruding disc will emerge increase. A bulging disc is a common spinal disorder suffered by many people for a variety of reasons. For people who have a history of spinal problems, they may be at a greater risk for bulging discs. For others, protrusions in their discs usually manifest because of unhealthy habits like smoking and imbalanced poor posture.

A bulging disk occurs when a disk in your spinal column bulges out of its normal place.   Whether it’s stress or physical trauma that causes a bulging disk, the result is limited and painful spinal movement. In addition, symptoms such as swelling, numbness, and weakness may also occur.

Chiropractic care is a safe and noninvasive treatment option for spinal disorders such as bulging discs. Because it does not require medication or surgical procedures, patients can receive high quality treatment without worrying about possible risks and complications. Though this type of treatment may take longer than surgery to effectively correct a protruding disc, you don’t have to worry about unintended negative consequences because it is risk-free and safe.

Prior to proper treatment, diagnostic procedures are necessary for the chiropractor to identify the location of the bulging disc and the level of protrusion. Several tests may be required for the chiropractor to learn more and evaluate the proper treatment for addressing the bulging disc. Since each chiropractic treatment is unique for each patient, chiropractors need to do a physical assessment of the patient be briefed on the patient’s medical history, so treatments are more specific.

Despite the initial tests and examinations, however, the overall cost of chiropractic is much less than the costs associated with going through surgery. Chiropractic treatments take place over several session, but it still ends up being much more cost-effective than expensive surgeries or even buying prescription medicine that does not always guarantee the desired results.

NY Chiropractic offers several kinds of treatment for bulging discs. Each treatment is specific to the needs of the patient, and patients are treated with utmost care to ensure rapid recovery.
