What is a disc herniation?


What is non-surgical spinal decompression?

Non-surgical lumbar decompression is a treatment that has been shown to be quite effective in treating back pain due to spinal injuries, bulging discs, slipped discs, and other issues such as disc herniation. This technique consists of the gentle stretching of the spine which results in the re-positioning of the vertebrae.

There are several varieties of herniated discs that are possible in the human spine. However, most people tend to use the same term (slipped disc) to refer to the different types of spine injuries. You will hear people referring to a herniated disc as a 'slipped disc,' but these are two distinct terms. A 'slipped disc’ can be a bit misleading because it could mean a lot of things including a bulged disc, prolapsed disc or even a herniated disc.

Exercise and Chiropractic Therapy

Cardiovascular and strengthening exercises combined with chiropractic care are important in the management of low back pain.

best mattress to avoid back pain

Sleeping on the wrong mattress can cause sleeplessness, back pain, and overall aches and pains. The right mattress can really help one have a good night's sleep and wake up feeling rested and refreshed. For people with a back problem, a mattress that isn't a good fit can make the pain worse.

Back pain is one of the most common work-related injuries and is often caused by ordinary work activities such as sitting in an office chair or heavy lifting. Applying ergonomic principles - the study of the workplace as it relates to the worker - can help prevent work-related back pain and back injury and help maintain a healthy back.

Ice/Heat Therapy

Heat or cold therapy can provide a surprising amount of pain relief for most types of back and neck pain. Muscle strains and pulls are some of the most common causes of back pain, and can be soothed with heat and cold therapy. Cold packs help reduce inflammation and numb a painful area while heat packs help increase circulation to a specific area of the body and can promote healing.
