What Caused Your Herniated Disc & How Heal Without Surgery?

Disc damage, prolonged sitting, and poor posture are the primary causes of a herniated disc. Spinal disc damage occurs with prolonged sitting, injuries, and poor posture. Herniated discs are better known by the lay-term “Slipped Discs” are an incredibly common disorder. Our modern lifestyles and a lack of sufficient activity have predisposed our backs to undue stresses. In this section of our website, we will familiarize you with all the causes of a herniated disc, as well as the non-surgical options that your surgeon forgot to mention!

Some people experience back pain as a fleeting problem, but for many, the pain lingers, becoming an agony almost impossible to bear. Today, back pain is fast becoming an epidemic in which there is no immunity. Besides the common cold in the United States, back pain results in more lost workdays than any other affliction. The economic burden of back pain in the United States is reported to have been as high as 196 Billion U.S. dollars in 2006 alone! If you have a slipped disc, call us today.

Spinal Disc Is Best Treated Non-Surgically

A herniated disc (protruded disc, prolapsed disc, extruded disc or slipped disc) is a painful condition affecting the young and the old alike. It is the leading cause of disability. A herniated disc is the number one reason why people have spinal surgery. It also has the highest and most flawed method of care compared to any other spine disorder. The most common site for a herniated or slip disc is the low back, but it can occur anywhere in the spine. Approximately 80% of spinal disc issues are in the neck or low back. The key to recovery without surgery is a therapy that addresses all causes of a herniated disc.

Treatments offered by most do little as they lack the ability to targeting the root causes of a herniated disc. Some don’t have the proper therapy equipment, while others are inexperienced. What is worse, are the centers with limited knowledge or insufficient skills to address the real cause of herniated disc (slipped disc). And as such, the vast majority of patients treated fail to show sustainable improvements.

Best Treatment For A Slipped Disc?

For therapy to be effective, it must address all of the root causes of a herniated disc. The multiple causes of a herniated disc make it difficult for many to offer you effective non-surgical solutions. As a result, the majority of patients that have a slipped disc, needlessly suffer. Some will even opt for surgery. While others live with the pain. Chiropractic Specialty Center® has a focused, customized method of treating a slipped disc. The care we provide fixes and repairs the damaged tissue without injections or surgery.

The care you get from us address all of your spinal disc issues at their roots. So, avoid patch-ups or short-term palliative care. Palliative care and even painkillers or muscles relaxers fail in the long-term. Thus, so it benefits you to investigate your options, choosing those that remove all barriers preventing repairs. In other words, opt for targeted treatments that repair the root causes of a herniated disc. Before a disc herniates, it must go through some changes.

These changes include muscular weakness, ligamentous laxity, joint fixation, and of course: insufficient blood flow to the injured disc. Holistic care means treating every aspect or as many elements as possible. Anything short of this will lead to reaggravation, flare-ups, and even worsening of your condition. Shortcuts and ineffective treatments do not address the causes of herniated discs. Neglecting your spinal disc issues or any attempts at getting by through shortcuts will only result in more misery. Mainly because in time, you will get worse and may even need surgical intervention. In other words, don’t waste time with ineffective or insufficient attempts for the sake of short-term gains.

Can Therapy Fix & Repair The Actual Cause Of Herniated Discs?

Some offer pain management but, yet pain management will fail as they only have limited clinical applications. You should manage health conditions for which there are no fixes, repairs, or cures. A herniated spinal disc (Slipped Disc) does not fall into the category where pain management is the primary means of care. For those with significant discomfort, pain management should be rendered concurrent with holistic corrective care. Pain management has never addressed the causes of a herniated disc, and it will fall short.

Since we do not live in a perfect world, holistic clinics and hospitals are hard to find. Successful treatments occur when you get comprehensive care. So, when it comes to herniated discs, absolute knowledge as to the causes of a herniated disc (slip disc) as well as effective treatments options are paramount for successful outcomes.

Chiropractic Specialty Center® has gone to great lengths to acquiring breakthrough technologies that provide effective holistic care that targets the root causes of a herniated disc. Besides, we hold regular training and educational courses. We are continually improving our skills and knowledge through research. In short, we have put measures and taken steps to bring non-operative treatments that none has in Southeast Asia. We are not aware of any that offer the same or similar form of holistic therapy anywhere else.

So, visit our center today and address the roots of a herniated disc instead of covering the symptoms with medications or drugs.

What Is The Actual Causes Of Disc Herniations Or Slipped Discs?

The simple fact is that a healthy spinal disc does not herniate (slip disc). In fact, some degenerative changes are necessary before a disc can herniate (Jill PG Urban and Sally Roberts 2003). Therefore, contrary to popular belief, disc herniations do NOT occur suddenly. Even in a traumatic accident (i.e., auto accident, sports injury, etc.), disc herniations only occur when there is a pre-existing condition such as a degenerated disc.

According to research presented by orthopaedic surgeons Dr. Adams & Dr. Hutton; mechanically induced ruptures of a healthy spinal disc are only inducible in controlled laboratory testing. Even then, the mechanical forces need to be more significant than those that are ever commonly encountered. However, in most experimental tests, the vertebral body failed rather than the disc!

How A Spinal Disc Herniates Or Protrude Through?

In most cases, the discs herniate (either partially or entirely) posteriorly (towards the back) or postero-laterally (towards, both back and side). When a disc herniates (slips), it presses on the nerve roots in the spinal canal (the spinal canal houses the spinal cord) or the foramina (the opening in-between each vertebra, where nerves exit) (Jill PG Urban and Sally Roberts 2003).

Herniated lumbar and cervical discs have proven to be a clinical challenge and to understand this, we must take a closer look at the mechanism of disc herniations and its clinical implications. In other words, the care you receive needs focus on the, and as such, the need for a holistic non-surgical treatment plan is vital. And you know what, we are the best at identifying and targeting all issues comprehensively and without surgery! Our in-depth knowledge and understanding of slipped discs are why our Doctors of Chiropractic are the best chiropractors in Malaysia.

Human Spinal Disc

Spinal discs are avascular structures. In other words, they do not have a direct blood supply. Nutrients are diffused inward to comply with the demands of the spinal disc cells. The diffusion of nutrients takes place through the vertebral end-plate. The vertebral end-plates are less than 1 mm thick and embedded in the bones of the spine. Contrary to the common belief, these vertebral end-plates are not part of the vertebra, but part of the spinal disc. It serves the spinal disc by providing an anchoring point to the vertebra and as a structure through which nutrients must diffuse through. Injury and neglect of minor spinal conditions lead to a malfunction to end-pates and an eventual interruption in the flow of nutrients to a spinal disc. Continued disruption in the flow of nutrients is the leading cause of a herniated disc.

Lack Of Blood-FLow Is The Leading Causes Of Disc Degeneration & Eventual Disc Herniation

Disc cells manufacture the aggrecan (protein molecule that is the building block of disc cells) molecules. Disc cells continuously create, replace, and rebuild the aggrecan molecules. As long as the disc cells have a proper uninterrupted flow of nutrients (water, glucose, amino acids, and oxygen) and a non-acidic environment, the spinal disc can rebuild and repair as needed. An interruption in the flow of nutrient flow for the starving discal cells leads to degenerative changes. These degenerative changes in-turn leads to a more severe disc condition such as a bulging or herniated disc.

Often, a herniated disc compresses the sensitive nerve fibers as they exit the spine. The compression of these fibers can lead to a local or radiating pain of varying intensity. The most disturbing aspect of a herniated disc is not the pain caused by the compression, but rather the prolonged compression of the spinal cord or nerve. Thus, the importance of having our expert clinical teams assesses all aspects of your pain for a complete recovery. Our clinical team’s skills and knowledge are unmatched by others. At our centers, you will find the best chiropractic physicians in Malaysia. Don’t settle for less; you only have one spine. Let our team provide the care you need today.

Spinal Cord And The Spinal Nerves

Unlike the spinal disc, the spinal cord and the spinal nerves have a direct blood supply. Tiny vessels within the spinal cord and spinal nerve provide the nutrients needed by that nerve to function. These small vessels often get compressed and pinched, disrupting the proper flow of nutrients into the spinal cord or nerve, which can lead to degeneration and possible necrosis (death of cells) of the neuronal (nerve) fibers, causing life-long neurological impairments.

Nerves control all cells in the human body, and for us to function at 100%, we need our nerves free of compressions and irritation. The human body is a magnificent structure with an elaborate system of checks and balances through nerves. It behooves us to ensure their proper and uninterrupted function.

The Importance Of Fixing Pinched Spinal Nerves

In the human body, there are approximately 800 billion cells. But, what you may not realize is that nerves control the function of each cell. The vast majority of these nerves originate from the spine. So, when a spinal nerve gets compressed, it just may cause more than back pain or neck pain. A compressed spinal nerve can lead to malfunctions that go beyond the aches and pains one feels in or around the spine. In other words, the nerves that exit the lower back controls the functions of muscles of the spine, buttocks, and legs, but most importantly, they control the circulation in your abdomen, buttocks, and legs. Additionally, the lower spine nerves also control the functions of your intestines, bowels, bladder, reproductive, and sexual organs. Thus, highlighting the importance of fixing pinched nerves.

Pinched Nerve Caused By Slipped & Protruded Spinal Disc

Slipped discs or slip-discs can pinch and irritate nerves. To recover, you need an accurate assessment of your condition. An accurate assessment is needed to identify all causes of a herniated disc. In other words, diagnosis is the difficult part. A herniated disc treatment must be precise to relieve a pinched nerve or nerves.

The 62 spinal nerves originate from the spinal cord, situated inside the spinal canal (a protective housing provided by the vertebral column) should not be compressed. Our clinical team is the expert you need to identify these areas of compression for an accurate diagnosis. Once we have diagnosed your condition, we will start our target methods of treatment backed by sophisticated therapy equipment.

For our cell to function at 100%, we need the nerve that controls that cell to function at 100%. Let’s look at another example, the nerves that originate from your neck control not only the muscles, ligaments, joints, spinal disc, and vessels of the neck, but also every single cell in your upper extremities (shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, and fingers). If one of these nerves are irritated, compressed, or starts to go through degenerative changes, as seen in necrosis, that nerve, and every cell that it controls loses function.

The Bottom Line On Herniated, Protruded, Prolapsed & Bulging Disc

The bottom line is that you must opt for treatments that target the actual cause of a herniated disc. Treating the cause of a herniated disc is far more complicated than what most believe. They are life-changers, and the change they bring is life-altering. Take our advice and trust only the learned and experienced. Get your slipped disc treatments from a center like ours. In other words, those that treat all of the root-causes of a herniated disc. Back pain or neck pain treatments are only beneficial when it is holistic, targeting to fix and repair the actual cause of pain. Having back pain, neck pain, or a herniated disc may not be your fault. However, you have no one but yourself to blame for not getting the expert care you need.

When a disc herniates, its fibers protrude (slip) and compress either the spinal cord and the spinal nerves. Prolonged compression of these delicate tissues leads to cellular damage within the nerve fibers. Damaged nerves will lead to disability, which limits every aspect of life. Heed the warning and get care from our team. Our non-surgical treatments are better and more effective compared to the best of what others can do.
