Ann Arbor Chiropractor Helps with Bulging Disc Pain
By: Pivotal Chiropractic
Whether this occurs from an injury or trauma, the result is weakness in the disc's annular fibers, causing it to bulge or herniate.
Most often, people feel this pain as stiffness or achiness and dismiss it as muscular. However, most of the time the pain you feel in these cases isn't due to muscle soreness.
The disc is the source of pain in up to 90% of overall neck and back pain conditions. Symptoms include general tightness and achiness, to severe, unrelenting pain that radiates down the arms and legs, numbness and tingling, or even muscle atrophy or weakness.
We are living in a world where our body is in a constant state of flexion. We sit at a desk flexing our hips and lumbar spine while at the same time flexing our neck as we work on our computer. We sit in our car driving to and from work with our hips and low back in a flexed position. We look down at our phone, tablet or laptop with our neck in a forward flexed position.
It's no wonder our normal everyday life is wearing out our spines! Patients that are "career sitters" have just as much disc and spinal damage as those that have done manual labor their whole life.
