Herniated Discs Nashville, TN
Nashville Spine and Sport Chiropractic Center
Back pain has numerous causes — your pain could be caused by a herniated disc in your spinal column, or from other problems with the discs. You can feel this in your back and even in your arms or legs.
So what’s the solution to this problem? Chiropractic care is a natural remedy that can treat the underlying cause of a herniated disc — not just the symptom of pain. A chiropractor has specialty knowledge on the causes and treatments of this problem.
For a herniated disc in Nashville TN, come to Nashville Spine & Sport for relief. You will be able to see a spine specialist who can provide lasting pain management. Call our office at (615) 920-5869 to make your first appointment. This is when we will discover the cause of your pain and discuss treatments.
What Is a Herniated Disc?
The discs in your spine work as padding for your vertebrae. They have a membrane that is filled with a cushy gelatinous substance, which is what gives the spinal bones their cushioning. When there is a problem with that disc, the vertebrae lose some of their padding and can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. The nerves send pain signals through your body, so you feel pain as long as that nerve has pressure on it.
At Nashville Spine & Sport, we provide herniated disc treatment, as well as treatment for other types of disc problems. With a herniated disc, some of the gelatinous substance that is cushioning the vertebrae leaks out of the disc, so it provides less padding.
We can also treat a degenerative disc or a bulging disc in Nashville TN. A degenerative disc is one that gets smaller and weaker over the course of time and a bulging disc is one that is enlarged and pressing on nerves. It’s possible to have more than one of these problems at the same time.
How Does a Chiropractor Provide Disc Pain Relief?
At Nashville Spine & Sport, we have a number of ways we treat herniated discs, also known as a slipped disc, for Nashville TN patients, in addition to other types of disc problems. Our doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Foote, uses spinal adjustments to align the spine. He relies on the Thompson Drop technique with the use of a specific chiropractic table.
He also might turn to spinal decompression therapy or other treatments to take the pressure off your discs. You will find out your custom treatment plan when you come in for your initial consultation appointment. During that session, Dr. Foote will evaluate you for a herniated disc in back, a cervical herniated disc in the neck or other disc problems, finding a treatment plan for your particular case.
Dr. Foote is trained in the workings of the back and how to treat problems there, in addition to the neck and other parts of the body. He underwent schooling at the Parker College of Chiropractic and obtained advanced chiropractic knowledge and specialized education in sports chiropractic. He’s also active in the community and he creates a warm, welcome environment that our patients love.
