Slipped Disc, Bulging Disc or Herniated Disc Treatment

Slipped Disc, Bulging Disc or Herniated Disc Treatment

Slipped Disc, Bulging Disc or Herniated Disc TreatmentDisc problems: bulging disc, slipped disc, herniated disc, ruptured disc, etc.; they go by various names.

Despite the confusion about different terms, the underlying causes of most disc problems are usually very similar.

Growing pressure around a disc and poor posture are two common reasons why discs can start to bulge.

A slipped disc can be symptom-free. However, when pain does occur, it is due to the pressure placed on the spinal cord or nerve roots.

What is a Slipped Disc?

The term ‘slipped disc’ has been used incorrectly for years. ‘Slipped disc’ should be more correctly described as a spinal misalignment or ‘subluxation’ in chiropractic.

The pressure of a subluxation can result in feeling muscle spasm, paralysed muscles, disturbed feelings in the limbs like pain or numbness.

Chiropractic Care Can Help with ‘Slipped Disc’

Chiropractic care is one of the most popular treatments used to treat bulging disc, ‘slipped disc’ or herniated disc and its symptoms.

Chiropractic care is non-invasive, does not involve pills, injections, or surgery.

Chiropractic adjustments have been well-researched for treating symptoms of ‘slipped disc’, bulging disc, including sciatic nerve pain, stiff neck and chronic lower back pain.

Adjustments remove subluxations (when one or more of the bones in your spine move out of position) allowing the disc the ability to heal itself.

ExerciseA study published in the Official Journal of the North American Spinal Society found that chiropractic adjustments helped adults with sciatic nerve pain feel less local pain, have fewer number of days with pain, and fewer cases of moderate or severe pain compared to people who didn’t receive adjustments.

Our patients share their success stories with us all the time:

PatrickScanlon“I can now walk my dogs!”

“My name is Patrick Scanlon, I found Optimal Chiropractic through my wife who is already a patient. I have been under care since April 2013. I came to seek chiropractic care following a car accident when I was suffering with severe back pain.

There were a lot of everyday things that suddenly became very difficult for me. I could barely carry a bag of shopping I was in so much pain. I noticed an improvement after a few visits. I can now do so much more than I could in the past, I now walk my dogs for a few miles every day. I also noticed headaches, which had been a problem for me, have disappeared. I feel so much better!
Dr Ben spent a lot of time and care in explaining the adjustments and how he was going to do it. I would recommend Optimal Chiropractic to everyone. They are very friendly, great at explaining care and great to make a person feel comfortable.”


“I am now pain free!”

“Hello there, my name is Orla O’Dwyer I have been a patient of Dr. Ben Martin, who has been my main support for any healthcare problems that have cropped up over the last number of years.

Many years ago, I approached the office for problems with very bad sciatica. I had been using medication for my condition and knew I had to do something as the thought of using meds for the rest of my life was bothersome.

As a result of regular care I am delighted to tell you that I am now pain free!!

Within 3 months I experienced a total change. Being pain free means I can get on with my life and enjoy myself to the full.

Staff are kind, good humoured, and with a commitment to patient health. Sometimes in healthcare, that combination can be a welcome bonus, but crucially is so important in assisting anyone in regaining their health.

I know that Optimal Chiropractic is most definitely an asset to Ballincollig, and the Cork area.

I am so glad that I opened the golden pages to find a chiropractor and know I found the right one. So pleased that other family members also attend and also reap the rewards.”
