The gel-like substance in a disc may sometimes bulge through a sudden trauma to the disc or by repetitive trauma over a period of many years. Forward bending, coupled with rotation, the spine is the most common mechanism of injury to the disc due to the extreme forces of compression created. For example, lifting a heavy suitcase out of the trunk of a car, or trying to start an old lawnmower.
While traditional chiropractic care may be of benefit for uncomplicated back and disc pain, conditions stemming from dic herniations may not respond. We created our proprietary Disc Revitalization Protocol to help people with complicated and unresponsive beck and/or leg symptoms.
